               <ul style="margin: 0; padding: 0; width: 525px;">
                  <% control UpcomingEvents(4, events) %>
                      <li style="overflow: hidden; margin-bottom: 10px; height: 100px;">
                         <div class="eventleft" style="float: left; width: 150px;">
                            <a href="$Link">$ImageURL.SetWidth(125)</a>
                         </div>                        
                         <div class="eventright">
                            <a href="$Link">$Title</a><br />
                           <p>$_DatesText</p>
                            <p>$Content.LimitWordCount(15)</p>
                         </div>                            
                      </li>
                  <% end_control %>
               </ul>

$_DatesText is $_Dates function just renamed
$ImageURL is a data object I added

Director::set_dev_servers(array(
   'localhost',
   '127.0.0.1',
));

That is turned on in _config.php

Do i need to do something further to be in dev mode?

I don't think $Content is a valid field for a CalendarDateTime object. Make sure you're using the $Event accessor.

$Event.Content, or use the shortcut $EventContent which has some smarts in it to get the content from the related event or the Description field if it's an announcement.

I've just started using event Calendar and am impressed. If I am using $Event.Content within UpcomingEvents events, how can I use a word limit on this? as say $EventContent.LimitWordCount(10) doesn't work.

Also, (and apologies if this has been asked before) - what is the best way to override calendar css? - as putting in my theme is not working.

Sorry for the noob questions - with thanks

<% control Event %>
$Content.LimitWordCount(10)
<% end_control %>
