    .csharpcode, .csharpcode pre { font-size: small; color: black; font-family: consolas, "Courier New", courier, monospace; background-color: #ffffff; /*white-space: pre;*/ } .csharpcode pre { margin: 0em; } .csharpcode .rem { color: #008000; } .csharpcode .kwrd { color: #0000ff; } .csharpcode .str { color: #006080; } .csharpcode .op { color: #0000c0; } .csharpcode .preproc { color: #cc6633; } .csharpcode .asp { background-color: #ffff00; } .csharpcode .html { color: #800000; } .csharpcode .attr { color: #ff0000; } .csharpcode .alt { background-color: #f4f4f4; width: 100%; margin: 0em; } .csharpcode .lnum { color: #606060; } One very common issue that we’ve addressed in the Q3 release is the lack of a description field for the appointments. Until now you had to customize the advanced template in order to get one, but not any more. How to enable the integrated description field: Data Source - set DataDescriptionField to the corresponding column in your database: <telerik:RadScheduler runat="server" ID="RadScheduler1" DataSourceID="AppointmentsDataSource" DataKeyField="ID" DataSubjectField="Subject" DataDescriptionField="Description" DataStartField="Start" DataEndField="End" DataRecurrenceField="RecurrenceRule" DataRecurrenceParentKeyField="RecurrenceParentID"> ... </telerik:RadScheduler> Provider – set EnableDescriptionField to “true” and persist the Appointment.Description value in your provider. <telerik:RadScheduler runat="server" ID="RadScheduler1" ProviderName="XmlSchedulerProvider" EnableDescriptionField="true" > ... </telerik:RadScheduler> This is all you need for editing and storing the description, but what about showing it? A simple appointment template will do: <AppointmentTemplate> <div> <%#...

    RadScheduler for Silverlight learning series, part 4: So what is RecurrenceExceptionHelper?

    September 10, 2009 Share
    For those of you following this series, I'm going to take a slight detour to explain one of the little bits of magic that we have been using to make loading and saving appointments very easy: RecurrenceExceptionHelper.  If you downloaded the sample application from part 3, you'll see this sitting in the Silverlight-RIA-Entity folder (aka the Silverlight portion of the solution).  The first thing you might be asking is where the need for such a class comes from.  Well, handling Recurrence rules and Exceptions are two of the more complex things that you can do when working with appointments.  When...

    RadScheduler for Silverlight learning series, part 1: Getting started with RIA Services

    September 01, 2009 Share
    One of the newest (and arguably greatest) controls to be added to the RadControls for Silverlight suite recently has been RadScheduler.  With it, you can take care of everything from scheduling your day to planning what track you want to attend at events.  This versatile control allows you a lot of freedom to customize how you interact with it and just what you can do with appointments, which is what this series is going to be all about.  I won't spoil the future installments just yet (although they'll include using RadDragAndDrop in RadScheduler, albeit in a different way than this...

    Mark working hours and days in different colors with RadScheduler for Silverlight

    We received a couple of questions on how some of the days and hours in the different views of RadScheduler can be customized. The answer of this question is in the attached application illustrating how working hours and days can be  marked in orange.  The solution includes 3 easy steps : Create a custom theme using the default RadScheduler' theme. Create a ValueConverter returning the right color depending on the hour/day. Find the style applied to every hour(timeslot) and apply the converter to the Background property. To create a custom theme you can follow the steps...
