Triggered when the user clicks on a date or a time.

function( date, jsEvent, view, [ resourceObj ] ) { }

date holds a Moment for the clicked day. If an all-day area has been clicked, the moment will be ambiguously-timed. If a slot in the agendaWeek or agendaDay views has been clicked, date will have the slot’s time.

jsEvent holds the native JavaScript event with low-level information such as click coordinates.

view is set to the current View Object.

Within the callback function, this is set to the <td> of the clicked day.

Here is an example that demonstrates all of these variables:

  dayClick: function(date, jsEvent, view) {

    alert('Clicked on: ' + date.format());

    alert('Coordinates: ' + jsEvent.pageX + ',' + jsEvent.pageY);

    alert('Current view: ' + view.name);

    // change the day's background color just for fun
    $(this).css('background-color', 'red');


The resourceObj parameter

Since the introduction of the Scheduler plugin, this callback reports a Resource Object parameter if the click happened on a resource. More information.

List View

The dayClick trigger is not fired when the user clicks a day heading in list view.

Resource Views

For resource views, this callback will receive an additional Resource Object parameter. Example:

  dayClick: function(date, jsEvent, view, resourceObj) {

    alert('Date: ' + date.format());
    alert('Resource ID: ' + resourceObj.id);


This is only available with the Scheduler plugin.

See a demo of dayClick with resources.
