    Hello again,

    With our ever lasting quest to get our apps faster and faster we were forced to implement the WebService databinds (They did not like 400kb post backs each request on normal ajax)

    With the webservice the callbacks got nuked down to just under 4kb, which needless to say is absolutly fantastic (about 10 times faster in all, the difference between: beeing able to twist your fingers on each postback and just beeing able to work without any downtime)
    However lately we were getting reports that the timeline view and month view do not like resource grouping all that much while using the webservices version, while they do show the resources, and even get a proper call back to GetAppointments() it does not 'draw' the appointments.
    Instead it throws a lovely: _e._model.addToBlocks is not a function in timelineview and a equally adorable this.get_activeModel().isVisible is not a function in month view.

    Reading up through the documentation in webservicebinding-binding.html we noticed this:

    Currently, Grouped views are not fully supported when using Web Service data binding. At the moment only Day and Week View grouped by resource are available. The rest will be supported in the next versions.

    I think you can guess our question:

    When?

    We took these components based on 6 criterium:
    1. Easy implementation
    2. High scaleability
    3. Drag and drop capability from one control to the next
    4. Low to medium data flow
    5. Ability to bind appointments to a employee
    6. Ability to quickly overview all employee's appointments in a timeline view, with the employees on the left, and appointments next to them.

    Now of the 6 all except 4 are available in the normal version with normal datasource binding, even with an ajaxmanager reducing the post backs.
    Now in the Webservices version all except 6 are available, (And point 4 is even exceeding our expectations)
    It would be most unfortunate if this 'fix' takes to long, our projects end date is closing in soon and we need this to work.
    An awnser would be HIGHLY appreciated, a 'temporary/permanent' fix would be even better.

    Regards, datamex.

    Hi,

    Thank you for the feedback, it's nice to know that we're moving in the right direction.

    The resource-grouped Timeline view will most definitely make it into the Q2 release (mid-July) and we hope that we'll be able to release it earlier in the internal builds for the Q1 version. We'll try to push the Month view too, but it'll most probably make it for Q2 and not earlier.

    Dear Tsvetomir,

    As my collegue stated above, we are strugling with the RadScheduler control.

    We've noticed that in 2009 Q2, the Group By Resource function when using web service data binding for the timeline view is implemented. However, the timeline view seems not to work properly. Somehow moving an appointment only works OK when you use timeslots which represent a whole day (SlotDuration="1.00:00:00"). When you use timeslots with a duration of an hour (for example), the appointment will always be dropped in the first timeslot.

    When you show more then 24 timeslots with a duration of 1 hour, it gets funny when you drop an appointment in a timeslot of the following day (for example, you show 24 hours from today, and 1 from the next day). The appointment will show again in the second timeslot from the left! When you move the appointment to the following day, it will move another timeslot, and so on...

    We also noticed that the month-view is still not working as it should... This is not that big a problem, but the timeline view not working is. Can you give us an indication of when these bug will be fixed?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi,

    Thank you for reporting these issues. We've managed to reproduce the TimelineView problem and to fix it. The fix will be available in the next internal build tomorrow (version 2009.2.803+) that you can download from your Client.NET account.

    The resource-grouped MonthView view will be implemented in time for the Q3 release, but we'll include it in the internal builds for Q2 as well.

    As a token of our gratitude for your involvement, your Telerik points have been updated

    Best wishes,

    This might be a stupid question, but where can I download this latest internal build? http://www.telerik.com/account/downloads/ -> Latest Internal Builds, I can only download  Telerik.Web.UI.2009_2_729_dev_hotfix.zip... I can't find the 2009.2.803 version anywhere...

    Hello,

    I've just checked and it turned out there was a problem with the internal builds uploads in the last few days. We've just corrected it and the 806 build will be live in a few minutes. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Sincerely yours,

    Thanks! This seems to fix the look of the Scheduler Timeline View, BUT... Now drag and drop seems to be broken inside this Timeline View! Also resizing an appointment (one slot more or less) seems to cause some problems sometimes, for example when you resize an appointment to use two slots, it will automatically grow and use three slots...

    Hello,

    We can confirm that the appointments are not ordered correctly in this configuration. We've also managed to reproduce the issue with the appointment resizing. We'll address both issues in the following days and we'll post a message here when we're ready with the fix.

    Thank you for your feedback. I've updated your Telerik points.

    Hi

    Has this problem been fixed, as I'm having the same problem where the appointment grows when it is resized or moved.

    Thanks

    Hi

    Thanks I have just installed the latest internal release. It seems to be fine for the current month and previous months but I'm still getting the same error for months in the future. Also the resizing handle disappears occasionally after the appointment is moved.

    Kind regards

    Hi Mathi,

    I think the issue that you have is not the same as the one Datamex reported. I've replied to your support ticket and I hope that we'll be able to resolve your problem soon.
