After some further investigation on the forums I found what I think are all the settings I need to change:
I've edited the EventsScheduleView.ascx file with these settings:
|<telerik:RadScheduler ID="eventsSchedule" runat="server" SelectedView="MonthView" OverflowBehavior="Expand" RowHeight="50px">
However these changes do not show up in sitefinity, it still defaults to day view, with a scroll bar and 25px high rows.
I've rebooted, rebuilt, recycled and deleted and re-added the control to a page. Is there something else I need to do to get these changes to show?
