    Is there a way to change the appointment item height in timeline view?

    I tried with:

    <Style x:Key="CategoryStyle" TargetType="telerik:AppointmentItem">
      <Setter Property="Height" Value="100" />

    and when I compile+run, the height doesn't change.

    Please advise.

    Hello JiFong,

    In TimelineView definition you could set StretchGroupHeaders property to True so that group headers take all availabe space and then if you want AppointmentItems to stretch also you have to set StretchAppointments property to True.
    If you do not want to stretch group headers and appointment items but just to increase the height of AppointmentItems then all you have to do is to set MinAppointmentHeight of RadScheduleView.

    Let us know if you need more information/

    Hi (Hristo),

    I tried setting the TimelineViewDefinition's StretchAppointments property to True as you suggested and it did not stretch the appointment.

    This is what I have in code:
      <telerik:TimelineViewDefinition VisibleDays="1" 
         MaxTimeRulerExtent="{Binding ActualWidth, ElementName=ParentElement}"
         StretchGroupHeaders ="True"
         GroupHeaderDateStringFormat="{StaticResource CustomDateStringFormat}"
         TimerulerMajorTickStringFormat="{StaticResource CustomTimeStringFormat}" />

    The only way that I have been able to increase the size of the appointment is to specify a value for the MinAppointmentHeight property of the RadScheduleView.

    However, this is not what I would prefer using because I would like it to stretch.

    I am looking forward to hearing your suggestions on how to achieve this.

    Hi Rebecca,

    The StretchGroupHeaders and StretchAppointments properties are designed to be used when there are Resources in the ScheduleView and if there isn't any resources in the control they will not change the behavior of the appointments in Timeline view.

    If you add Resources in your project and then set the StretchGroupHeaders/StretchAppointments properties the appointments in those resources will stretch.

    If you want to change the height of the appointments in Timeline view you need to set the MinAppointmentHeight property.
