    I´m workin with scheduler  control, and i´m using a diferen category colors  for a dirferen user.  the app Sherduler of Relerik only have a 8  default colors but a   need a  a more  Catergory with a diferent colors.

    To add a new category at sheduler, my code is like it;



    new Category("Magenta Category", new SolidColorBrush(Colors.Magenta)));



    in the runTime this no have Problem. I can see the  Magenta Category

    The problem is when I  create a new Appointment whit Magenta Category, in runTime I can See  the new Appointments  whit  Magenta Category. but when I refresh the app  this new  Appointments is Shown withuot Category.

    Hello Jose,

    Please, take the time to examine the FirstLook example of RadScheduleView. It demonstrates a very simple way to create a custom collection of Categories. Simply add your desired categories to the CategoryCollection:

                        <schedule:Category CategoryName="Green" CategoryBrush="{StaticResource GreenBrush}" />
                        <schedule:Category CategoryName="Purple" CategoryBrush="{StaticResource PurpleBrush}" />
                        <schedule:Category CategoryName="Olive" CategoryBrush="{StaticResource OliveBrush}" />
                        <schedule:Category CategoryName="Pink" CategoryBrush="{StaticResource PinkBrush}" />

    I hope this helps in your case. Let me know if this approach does not fit your scenario.

    All the best,

       How do we set Category Colors to Appointments dynamically?
    with RadScheduler it was possible to do something like
     case "Blue Category":
                                newAppointment.Category = Categories.BlueCategory;
                            case "Green Category":
                                newAppointment.Category = Categories.GreenCategory;

    will this be possible using RadScheduleView?
    Thanks & Regards

    Hello Supreet,

    When adding an appoitnment dynamically, you can set its category in the following manner:
    new Appointment(){Subject="April",Start =DateTime.Today,End =DateTime.Today.AddHours(4), Category = new Category (){CategoryBrush= Brushes.Red, CategoryName="Red"}},

    It is best if you have your own category collection and set choose an element from it, when creating the appoitnment.

    I hope this helps.

    Best wishes,
