The Windows Forms Scheduler control by Telerik uses a single control to display the Day, MultiDay, Week, WorkWeek, Month and Timeline Views. This feature ensures simplified deployment, much better flexibility and saves the need to write or modify the logic behind for all different view controls to make them work as one control. Added to that, you can set your preferences from one place to apply to all views.
The data binding process is entirely codeless, giving you the freedom to spend your time on other tasks. A Data Source property is available directly in Scheduler’s ActionList, which you can use to specify the SchedulerBindingDataSource component which will be used as a data source in RadScheduler.
Telerik Windows Forms Scheduler is designed to take advantage of a powerful provider architecture. It uses the Provider Design Pattern to allow for easy integration into existing applications. This also allows it to connect to various data sources.
A first-rate scheduling component should offer intuitive, simple, and familiar interface, to help the user review all events in a fast and efficient manner. Telerik Windows Forms Scheduler provides simplistic, but powerful interface, following closely the established UI standards:
Creating and editing appointments with Telerik Windows Forms Scheduler is easy and is done with just a few mouse clicks. The component provides the end user with the freedom to set his/her status for the particular appointment (busy, free, tentative, unavailable), as well as the ability to choose a color-coded category which relates to the appointment (business, personal, vacation, etc), much like he/she would do in Microsoft Outlook.
All appointment dialogs can be tailored to the application’s specifications. Since all Scheduler dialogs are build with Telerik WinForms controls, they can easily be tweaked, customized and extended with new controls and features to fit any custom scenario.
Built with usability in mind, Telerik Scheduler grants the user with familiar Microsoft Office-like UI and behavior, which means that no learning is required to work with the control. In addition to the Appointment Capabilities above, it offers a slew of end-user features:
A separate Scheduler Navigator component allows for quick switching between the available scheduler views (Day, Week, Month), and to toggle weekends on/off. It also navigates back and forth within a view and shows the current dates in a fully customizable and localizable Date Header. RadSchedulerNavigator can easily be bound to a RadScheduler instance both in the Visual Studio Designer and in runtime:

The control is shipped with a rich set of themes that allow you to easily build slick interfaces with the look-and-feel of Windows8, Office 2013, TelerikMetro, etc. The themes can be easily switched using a single property.
