    Integrated Description field in RadScheduler for ASP.NET AJAX

    .csharpcode, .csharpcode pre { font-size: small; color: black; font-family: consolas, "Courier New", courier, monospace; background-color: #ffffff; /*white-space: pre;*/ } .csharpcode pre { margin: 0em; } .csharpcode .rem { color: #008000; } .csharpcode .kwrd { color: #0000ff; } .csharpcode .str { color: #006080; } .csharpcode .op { color: #0000c0; } .csharpcode .preproc { color: #cc6633; } .csharpcode .asp { background-color: #ffff00; } .csharpcode .html { color: #800000; } .csharpcode .attr { color: #ff0000; } .csharpcode .alt { background-color: #f4f4f4; width: 100%; margin: 0em; } .csharpcode .lnum { color: #606060; } One very common issue that we’ve addressed in the Q3 release is the lack of a description field for the appointments. Until now you had to customize the advanced template in order to get one, but not any more. How to enable the integrated description field: Data Source - set DataDescriptionField to the corresponding column in your database: <telerik:RadScheduler runat="server" ID="RadScheduler1" DataSourceID="AppointmentsDataSource" DataKeyField="ID" DataSubjectField="Subject" DataDescriptionField="Description" DataStartField="Start" DataEndField="End" DataRecurrenceField="RecurrenceRule" DataRecurrenceParentKeyField="RecurrenceParentID"> ... </telerik:RadScheduler> Provider – set EnableDescriptionField to “true” and persist the Appointment.Description value in your provider. <telerik:RadScheduler runat="server" ID="RadScheduler1" ProviderName="XmlSchedulerProvider" EnableDescriptionField="true" > ... </telerik:RadScheduler> This is all you need for editing and storing the description, but what about showing it? A simple appointment template will do: <AppointmentTemplate> <div> <%#...
