    I am starting to use the radscheduler for one of my company's project.  I would like to change the text in the print for the appointment. I tried to change the appointment.text in the event CellPrintElementFormating without any success.  Is there a way to accomplish it?

    Hello JJ,

    Thank you for writing.

    Not being able to change the appointments' text in the AppointmentPrintElementFormatting event is a known limitation and it will be improved with the next official release. For the time being, you can print custom text in your appointments by using the following approach:
    public Form1()
        this.radScheduler1.AppointmentPrintElementFormatting += new PrintAppointmentEventHandler(radScheduler1_AppointmentPrintElementFormatting);
        this.radScheduler1.AppointmentPrintElementPaint += new PrintAppointmentPaintEventHandler(radScheduler1_AppointmentPrintElementPaint);
    void radScheduler1_AppointmentPrintElementPaint(object sender, PrintAppointmentPaintEventArgs e)
        Rectangle rect = e.Bounds;
        rect.Offset(e.AppointmentElement.StatusAreaWidth, 0);
        rect.Width -= e.AppointmentElement.StatusAreaWidth;
        string text = "The summary is " + e.AppointmentElement.Appointment.Summary;
        using(Brush brush = new SolidBrush(e.AppointmentElement.ForeColor))
            e.Graphics.DrawString(text, e.AppointmentElement.Font, brush, rect);
    void radScheduler1_AppointmentPrintElementFormatting(object sender, PrintAppointmentEventArgs e)
        e.AppointmentElement.DrawText = false;

    I hope you find this useful. If you have any further questions, feel free to ask.

    Kind regards,
