Can someone explain changing the colors in Calendar to me?

For discussing the Mozilla Calendar, Sunbird and Lightning projects.

The description on the FAQ is a little lacking.
"How can I Color Events?
You can create calendar files for different kinds of events and give each file a different color."

How do I create a calendar file? Is there a simple way to just edit the colors for different events?

Thanks.

Choose File>New Calendarfile is one way to do it.

Not atm. Different calendars can have different colors. The events gets the colors you choose for your calendar files.

In future versions you can use Options/Preferences to specify a colour for each category. In fact you can do it right now using style rules, but it is a little messy. See Changing fonts and colors in the help if you want to try it. If you do use style rules, you might have to remove them in future to make the category colours work properly.

You cannot colour a specific event, and I don't think there are any plans to make that possible in future.

Oh ok, I got it now. Thank you. And thanks for the update on what it will be like in the future. I am anxious for the next release.
