    We are looking to access selected scheduler resource "code-behind" when launching a "ShowAdvancedInsertForm".
    Is there a method to get the scheduler resource grouped by and injecting it to the Advanced Insert form in Q2_2009 version?

    Let's say I have a timeline with 3 rooms grouped by and 5 (open) days slots, how can I preselect in the Advanced form the resource "room x" I selected in day d when triggering the "ShowAdvancedInsertForm" by contextual menu?

    I'm guessing you can use the FormCreated event. You just need to check the form mode "e.Container.Mode == SchedulerFormMode.AdvancedInsert" and then access the controls you want to preselect. You even have access to the appointment object. I don't know if the appointment object will know the resource you selected, but you can check it I guess.

    I hope that helps.

    The suggestion that Robert made is valid. For example:
    protected void RadScheduler1_FormCreated(object sender, SchedulerFormCreatedEventArgs e)
        if (e.Container.Mode == SchedulerFormMode.AdvancedInsert)
            RadComboBox room = e.Container.FindControl("ResUser") as RadComboBox; // Res + resource name
            if (room != null)
                // ...

    You can also assign a resource in the FormCreating event and it will be selected automatically:

    protected void RadScheduler1_FormCreating(object sender, SchedulerFormCreatingEventArgs e)
        if (e.Mode == SchedulerFormMode.AdvancedInsert)
            Resource room1 = RadScheduler1.Resources.GetResource("Room", 1);

    I hope this helps.
