I have an item in iCal that shows in grey rather than the (blue) colour of the calendar it belongs to.

It also has an interrupted border rather than a flawless border.

What does that mean?

Update: It shows up in the correct colour (blue) on the Web interface.


If someone has sent you an invite and you have responded "Maybe", the Event will show up as described.

  • I created the event and sent an invite and the response was positive. – Andrew J. Brehm May 11 '12 at 23:27
  • Hmm, that's the only circumstance I've seen what you describe. – afragen May 12 '12 at 0:59

    This may sound funny... but have you maybe somehow invited yourself? Because @afragen is right: Grey means - it's an invitation to you, which hasn't been accepted yet. – cyphorious Dec 19 '12 at 12:55
