    Hi

    I was here to find a solution for TimeZone when Server and client are at different locations.
    The problem i am trying here to solve is that if I am in UK and Servers are in USA, then when i set a reminder to 5pm
    it should popup reminder as per UK 5pm and not as per USA 5pm.

    I guess there is a feature to manage this and when i tried to look at URL
    http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/scheduler/examples/timezones/defaultcs.aspx

    It redirects me to http://demos.telerik.com/ErrorPageResources/error.aspx?aspxerrorpath=/aspnet-ajax/scheduler/examples/timezones/defaultcs.aspx

    So I guess the link is not working.   Can anyone look into it.   and is there any other detail article/tutorial on the topic.

    Hi Dan,

    I have created a video file using screen capture utility and have uploaded it on a free file uploading server.

    Your Download-Link:TelerikURLErrorScreenCaptureVideo.zip
    http://www.megafileupload.com/en/file/327427/TelerikURLErrorScreenCaptureVideo-zip.html

    Please go through and have a look as how I am getting that error.

    Regards
    JD.

    Your video is not at that link. Perhaps the filesize was too large and they took it down.

    Anyways, I was able to get the error you had after moving an appointment around, then clicking on "Alex's Birthday". But I only got the error a couple times and it's hard to find steps to reproduce.

    Looks like Alex's Birthday is supposed to be an All Day appointment but because of the timezone difference it messes up. If I create my own All day appointment then changed the timezone and it no longer shows in the All Day section.

    Looks like a bug... Can anyone from Telerik take a look?

    Hi,

    All-day appointments are expected to shift and leave the all-day row if the timezone offset is changed.

    Eric,

    I think you'll find that the developer world - or at least that part of it that has ever had to work with/around this issue - is fairly evenly split. FWIW, I'm with you. Telerik, it seems, along with at least 1 client of mine, is on the other side of the argument.

    Sorry, responded as Eric by mistake.. What I said was:
    That doesn't make sense logically from the User Interface because the time fields go away when All Day is checked. To me, something that takes place all day takes place all day regardless of where in the world are perspective is from. If I want to mark Jan 1 as a Holiday, I expect it to be an all day holiday in every timezone.

    Dan

    That said, I suppose an alternative is to lock the scheduler to a specific time zone. But that would only work with clients that don't span multiple timezones.

    You'll get no argument from me. However, not everyone sees the argument the same way. Telerik are amongst them. At least one UK Govt department is another.

    If you're saying that once the time zone has changed that because it's moved out of the 'All-Day' region you should have access to the time fields. You're right, IMHO. If you can't access these fields in this case, you should pursue it with the boys and girls at telerik, 'cos that sounds like a bug to me.

    I guess I'm not really helping, am I?

    Maybe a property to always show the time fields could be exposed?

    For my money, I've said that the system should always just show the time fields if the event is not all day in the selected time zone.

    Just an opinion, of course.
