    Hi,
    I received requirements today to build a capacity planning web-application.

    The current solution our users use is an excel file. Each column is a week data range. The rows contain different resources (people). In the cells for data they fill in a number of days. (eg Person Joe is working 2 days in the week of 8/1 to 8/8)

    They like the excel functionality that you can drag a cell over to other cells top copy it's value.

    I have been looking at the Silverlight to simulate such behaviour. The RadScheduler tool comes close. The only problem I see are the default views. (day, week, month). Is it mandatory to use timeslotes as row? Could I customise this that on the vertical level (where radscheduler uses timeslots) that I bind other data ? (such as people)

    Other option would be to use RadGridView. Is there a way with RadGridView to select a cell and drag/copy its contents to other cells ?

    Thanks for your answers,
    Nicolas

    Hello NS,

    Thanks for your questions. You can accomplish the desired behavior using our RadScheduler control for Silverilght. With RadScheduler you can change the number of the days displayed in the Day view. You can refer to the following example for more details:
    Multiple Days

    Hope this helps.
