The sample shows how to bind the calendar to a collection of appointments. Populating the collection is up to you. If you prefer, you can populate it from a database, from a service, hardcode the values, etc. We don't have a way to bind the calendar directly to a database, but you can easily change the FetchData method in the sample in order to get the appointments from your database instead of using our hardcoded values. The samples that we provide demonstrate the properties, methods and behavior of our controls in general use-case scenarios and don't emphasize on general development principles like polling data from a database.
