Description Olaf Bartelt 2012-01-20 10:18:29 UTC
In MonoTouch, the property MonoTouch.EventKit.EKCalendar.Title is read only, which is wrong (in the iOS SDK, this property is writeable and needed in order to create a new calendar with a custom title). 

Any workaround/bugfix for this? Or another way to create a custom calendar with a title?

You're right, it should be read/write. I'll fix this and provide you with a workaround.

I reviewed the EKCalandar type [1] and also added a missing setter for the CGColor property and removed the (unusable) default constructor.

This will be fixed in future releases. In the mean time you can use the following code as a workaround:

			EKEventStore store = new EKEventStore ();
			var c = EKCalendar.FromEventStore (store);
			Selector selSetTitle = new Selector ("setTitle:");
			using (var ns = new NSString ("my title")) {
				MonoTouch.ObjCRuntime.Messaging.void_objc_msgSend_IntPtr (c.Handle, selSetTitle.Handle, ns.Handle);

Thanks for your report!
