    I'd like to achieve some kind of presence planning for employees.

    I need
    - to display a "kind of calendar" (list of months /days)  showing one or two months (columns)
    - a group by employee department (lines Group)
    - a line per employee (lines)
    - On each line a color representing the absence of the employee (day off, leaves...) for the day
    - On a mouseover on the absence, a little tooltip will show the date, the duration and the reason of the absence

    There's no need of any kind of input other than the date start / date end of the presence and perhaps a selected department.

    In your great controls which one is the best to achieve my goal ?

    Hello Christian,

    Why not using RadGridView ?
    Your requirements can be achieved as follows:
    1. In case the corresponding properties are of type DateTime, you will get RadDatePicker as editing element. Furthermore, you can change cell templates and define the control you want inside.  
    2. You can benefit from the built-in grouping functionality. 
    3. Each employee (item) will be presented in a separate row.
    4. You can define RowStyleSelectors that will change the appearance of each row depending on the data you want. 
    5. You can create your own ToolTip for each row.
