Hi,

I want to derive from Telerik.Windows.Controls.ScheduleView.Slot to add some extra information as IsHoliday to my special slots and than use this in my special slot style selector. My scheduler binds to an ObservableCollection<CSchedulerSlot> as SpecialSlotsSource.
But the "object item" which is passed to SelectStyle method of the selector is always of type Slot instead of my custom class CSchedulerSlot. The following code does not work, becuase i always get a an InvalidCastException.

public override Style SelectStyle(object item, DependencyObject container, ViewDefinitionBase activeViewDefinition)
        {
            FrameworkElement elem = container as FrameworkElement;
 
            if (elem == null)
                return base.SelectStyle(item, container, activeViewDefinition);
           
            CSchedulerSlot slot = (CSchedulerSlot)item;

What I'm doing wrong? Is there a workaround for this?

thanks in advance,

michael

Hi Michael,

I suggest you override the Copy and CopyFrom methods of the base Slot class as it is shown here. This should solve the problem.

Hi Rosi,

thanks for your answer. This solves my problem perfectly and I finally got rid of my static holiday checking in the style selector which makes my application cleaner and faster. :-)

best regards,

michael
