Calendar app crashes when setting an event color

Problems with setting event colors using your calendar app?

If your calendar app crashes when setting the color for a specific event, it's a bug of your calendar app (and not DAVx⁵). This will only happen when event colors are enabled in DAVx⁵ account settings.

We have noticed that the following calendar apps may crash when an event color is assigned:

  • stock calendar / AOSP calendar
  • Google Calendar (bug report / discussion) now Google Calendar doesn't allow setting colors for non-Google accounts at all
  • Samsung S Planner

Setting event colors has successfully been tested with: (alphabetical order)

How can I fix it?

If you're experiencing this problem, you may either

  • use a calendar app that supports setting event colors (see above), or
  • disable event colors for the affected DAVx⁵ account and force synchronization.
