Hello,

We are wondering how to access the low-level appointment data (like recordset ID or internal references) in order to duplicate a selected appointment including all its settings to a new date in timeline view (v. Q2_2009).
We were looking at the exposed properties without finding something, but I guess we certainly missed something...

Edit: The selection of the appointment occurs through a contextual menu.

This has to be done server-side for technical reasons.
Anybody has an idea?

Regards,
David

I'm assuming the property you want is the Appointment.Clone(). This will return a duplicate of the appointment object.

Is that what you're looking for?

Hi David,

In addition to Robert's suggestion, we have recently had a question on how to copy and paste an appointment using the context menu. Here is sample code for this functionality:

<telerik:RadAjaxPanel ID="RadAjaxPanel1" runat="server"
        <telerik:RadScheduler ID="RadScheduler1" runat="server" OnAppointmentContextMenuItemClicking="RadScheduler1_AppointmentContextMenuItemClicking"
            OnTimeSlotContextMenuItemClicking="RadScheduler1_TimeSlotContextMenuItemClicking"
            <AppointmentContextMenuSettings EnableDefault="true" /> 
            <AppointmentContextMenus
                <telerik:RadSchedulerContextMenu ID="RadSchedulerAppointmentContextMenu1" runat="server"
                    <Items
                        <telerik:RadMenuItem Text="Copy" Value="Copy"
                        </telerik:RadMenuItem
                    </Items
                </telerik:RadSchedulerContextMenu
            </AppointmentContextMenus
            <TimeSlotContextMenuSettings EnableDefault="true" /> 
            <TimeSlotContextMenus
                <telerik:RadSchedulerContextMenu ID="RadSchedulerTimeslotContextMenu1" runat="server"
                    <Items
                        <telerik:RadMenuItem Text="Paste" Value="Paste"
                        </telerik:RadMenuItem
                    </Items
                </telerik:RadSchedulerContextMenu
            </TimeSlotContextMenus
        </telerik:RadScheduler
    </telerik:RadAjaxPanel>

protected void RadScheduler1_TimeSlotContextMenuItemClicking(object sender, TimeSlotContextMenuItemClickingEventArgs e) 
   
       if(Session["appointment"] != null
       
           Appointment a = Session["appointment"] as Appointment; 
           //The following achieves cut and paste: 
           //RadScheduler1.DeleteAppointment(a, true); 
           TimeSpan appDuration = a.Duration; 
           a.Start = e.TimeSlot.Start; 
           a.End = e.TimeSlot.Start.Add(appDuration); 
           RadScheduler1.InsertAppointment(a); 
               
               
           RadScheduler1.Rebind(); 
       
           
   
   protected void RadScheduler1_AppointmentContextMenuItemClicking(object sender, AppointmentContextMenuItemClickingEventArgs e) 
   
       Session["appointment"] = e.Appointment; 
   
   protected void Page_Init(object sender, EventArgs e) 
   
       XmlSchedulerProvider provider = new XmlSchedulerProvider(Server.MapPath("~/App_Data/Appointments.xml"), true); 
       RadScheduler1.Provider = provider; 
   }

Attached is a simple demo for reference.


Kind regards,

This almost works for what I am trying to do.  One thing that I need to be able to do is nullify a custom attribute (primary key to the table) so that instead of editing an existing record in the database, I insert a new record.

I basically have the desired result I want except my calendar is not rebinding once I insert my record into the database.  I have to close and rerun the page to see the new appointment.  Here is my code...

    Private Sub RadScheduler1_TimeSlotContextMenuItemClicking(sender As Object, e As TimeSlotContextMenuItemClickingEventArgs) Handles RadScheduler1.TimeSlotContextMenuItemClicking
        If Session("appointment") IsNot Nothing Then
            Dim oSched1 As Appointment = Session("appointment")
            Dim oSched2 As Appointment = Nothing
            Dim appDuration As TimeSpan = oSched1.Duration
            oSched1.Start = e.TimeSlot.Start
            oSched1.End = e.TimeSlot.Start.Add(appDuration)

            Dim oScheduledShipment As New tScheduledShipment
            Dim oNewShipment As New tScheduledShipment
            With oScheduledShipment
                .ShipmentID = oSched1.Attributes.Item("ShipmentID")
                .OriginAssetID = oSched1.Attributes.Item("OriginAssetID")
                .DestinationID = oSched1.Attributes.Item("DestinationID")
                .Vessel = oSched1.Attributes.Item("Vessel")
                .CarrierID = oSched1.Attributes.Item("CarrierID")
                .ScheduledTons = oSched1.Attributes.Item("ScheduledTons")
                .ScheduledShipDate = oSched1.Start
                .ExpectedArrivalDate = oSched1.End
                .ActionID = 1
                .ActionBy = "chrisruckman"
                .ActionMachine = "abc"
                .ActionDate = Date.Now
            End With

            Using o As New CIMSLogisticsService.ScheduledShipmentsClient
                oNewShipment = o.InsertScheduledShipment(oScheduledShipment)
            End Using

            oSched2 = New Appointment
            With oNewShipment
                oSched2.Attributes("ScheduledShipmentID") = .ScheduledShipmentID
                oSched2.Attributes("ShipmentID") = .ShipmentID
                oSched2.Attributes("OriginAssetID") = .OriginAssetID
                oSched2.Attributes("DestinationID") = .DestinationID
                oSched2.Attributes("Vessel") = .Vessel
                oSched2.Attributes("CarrierID") = .CarrierID
                oSched2.Attributes("ScheduledTons") = .ScheduledTons
                oSched2.Attributes("ScheduledShipDate") = .ScheduledShipDate
                oSched2.Attributes("ExpectedArrivalDate") = .ExpectedArrivalDate
                oSched2.Attributes("ActionID") = .ActionID
                oSched2.Attributes("ActionBy") = .ActionBy
                oSched2.Attributes("ActionMachine") = .ActionMachine
                oSched2.Attributes("ActionDate") = .ActionDate
            End With

            RadScheduler1.InsertAppointment(oSched2)

            'RadScheduler1.DataSource = ScheduledShipments()
            'RadScheduler1.DataBind()
            RadScheduler1.Rebind()
        End If
    End Sub

I fixed it.  My ScheduledShipments wasn't populating the datasource because it was checking to see if a session variable was being set.  I simply set the session variable to nothing and called the ScheduledShipments to set the data and called the scheduler's databind methog.  I removed .Rebind because it was undoing the databind()

 

                RadScheduler1.DataSource = Nothing
                Session(SCHEDULEDSHIPMENTS_DATA) = Nothing

                RadScheduler1.DataSource = ScheduledShipments()
                RadScheduler1.DataBind()
