    RadScheduler for Silverlight learning series, part 3: Add, Edit, and Delete Appointments

    If you've been along for the ride so far with this series, you already know that we've hooked a SQL database up to RIA Services using an ADO.Net Entity Data Model and a DomainDataService data context.  If you've missed it, check out the prior two posts (or search RadScheduler for Silverlight learning series in the Telerik Blogs site).  Now that we're here, we have three more events to handle and we've got a fully-functional RadScheduler for Silverlight hooked up to RIA services.
