    I'm trying to get the color of the appointment for a resource and the header when using grouping to match also. I can set the colors of both but not using the built-in css styles.

    Sub Page_Load

            sqlDataRdr = sqlCmd.ExecuteReader()

            Do While sqlDataRdr.Read()

                If Not System.DBNull.Value.Equals(sqlDataRdr.Item("ID")) Then
                        RadScheduler1.ResourceStyles.Add(New ResourceStyleMapping("Calendar", sqlDataRdr.Item("ID"), sqlDataRdr.Item("colorStyle")))
                End If

    Here is the Header color changing. I'd like to use the built-in css styles (rsCategoryViolet) but am unsure how to set that. Here is the manual way.

        Protected Sub RadScheduler1_ResourceHeaderCreated(sender As Object, e As ResourceHeaderCreatedEventArgs)

            Dim user As Label = TryCast(e.Container.FindControl("ResourceLabel"), Label)
            Dim resourceDiv As HtmlGenericControl = TryCast(e.Container.FindControl("ResourceDiv"), HtmlGenericControl)
            user.Text = e.Container.Resource.Text

            If user.Text = "Greg" Then
                resourceDiv.Style.Add("Background", "Red")
                resourceDiv.Style.Add("color", "white")
            End If

        End Sub

    I am afraid the built-in classes and their styles are not applicable to the ResourceHeader and are to be applied to the appointments only as shown in the Setting Styles for Appointments article where the class is set to the Appointment's CssClass property in the AppointmentDataBound handler. 
    In order to set the ResourceHeaders' styles you can use an approach similar to the one shown in the Resource Grouping demo and set custom Classes to the element/elements in your ResourceHeaderTemplate (Panels, divs, etc.). These classes can use some of the styles (background-color and color for instance) of the built in Appointment CssClasses, which will help you the desired matching appearance of Appointments and Header.
