RE: 1. Could you please give me more information about the version of RadControls for Winforms which you currently use? I'm asking this because we have made many fixes in RadScheduler in Q2 2009 SP1.
- The version installed is: RadControls for WinForms Q2 2009 SP1
- The version number is: 2009.2.9.729
- Runtime version: v2.0.50727
RE: 2. Could you please give me more information about why you want to host controls in the cells of RadScheduler? What would be the purpose of doing this and is there any other option?
Currently I am using two seperate scheduler controls but the main one dealing with clinics is troubling:
The main Scheduler is (defaulted) to the month view, which displays 4 weeks. The other scheduler im not trying to do anything funny with. The main view shows when clinics are open and where someone can book appointments.
Month view doesnt have the capbability to show all clinics in the month view cell. If all the clinics can not be seen they certain days will probably miss appointments beeing added to them. This can be solved if the user were filtering properly however some may want to see the progress over several clincs.
1. Add a button(s) which allows the user to cycle the view on each cell view where there are too many clinics to show
--- Already knowing the collection on each cell this should be relitively easy
2. Add a scroll bar to the cell like other views
--- Its already been said this was tried by your team but they were looking for something a bit better
3. Adding a label giving a count of the current clinics in a month cell
--- While letting the user know they will need to goto a differnt view its still not that intuitive.
Current toying ideas:
Add two (small) buttons to the header of each cell allowing quick navigation from the month view to either the week or day view.
Targets: focus on that particular cell.
: Add a button to the context menu when right clicking
: subjective; possibly more intuitive
In both cases it would likely be adding button(s) to the header of each month cell and docking right. Partly this is about curiosity (that might prove to be useful) and partly to do with current limitations of the month view.
I Hope the above helps.
