    Part of our business procedures for the day is having our users "sign in" to a location on a daily basis, as part of a People Directory application. This usually happens as the user logs into their account, but we also provide functionality for users to set their locations in advance.

    Our current process of doing this is using a big SQL script that maps out the days of the month into a DataList and then lists the statuses for the user when they logged in, and allows them to edit cells to submit new ones and sign in advance.

    We're in the process of re-doing this webapp and integrating it into SharePoint. My question is, what would be the best Telerik control to use for this? It seems like the RadCalendar wouldn't let me edit cells to let users add descriptions to them, and RadScheduler is way too advanced for what we need (a simple status tied to the entire day). I really don't want to go the GridView route because I'm afraid of that massive script that populates the old one.

    Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

     If you need a control that necessarily works with dates RadCalendar and RadScheduler are the two main options. Otherwise you can also try RadListView where you can fully customize the templates to look in the desired way.

    Kind regards,

    Thanks for the reply -- I've been trying to use the RadCalendar control but I haven't been able to modify the cell template so that I can add custom controls in there that can subscribe to events. Is this at all possible?

    Hi,

     You can add templates to the cells of the calendar as shown in this demo and help article:
    http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/calendar/examples/functionality/specialdays/defaultcs.aspx 
    http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/calendar-day-templates.html 

    Of course the templates can also be initialized in code behind if needed. In this case you would need a class that implements the ITemplate interface.
