    For client-side binding, it doesn't seem like it uses the <AppointmentTemplate>; is there a template it can use on client-side, or pretty much to display a custom template I need to create it programmatically through the AppointmentDataBound event?

    Hello Brian,

    I'm posting the reply to your feature request here for community reference.

    Thank you for your feedback. Indeed, the only way to customize the appointments on the client is by using the appointmentCreated client-side event. The server-side templates are no good as we don't have data about the appointments on the server.

    Client-side templates are the way to go, but we currently don't have a demo available. We plan to implement such with both the ASP.NET 4.0 client-side templates and with jQuery micro-templates. The second option is especially lightweight and you might want to give it a try.

    I hope this helps.

    Kind regards,

    Is there any news on the Client-Side Webservice databinding?  I just modified my Scheduler control to use WebService databind but didn't realize that I couldn't define templates.  You mentioned a demo being worked on but I don't see a demo for the new Q3 2010 release that has code samples for Client-Side databind using templates.

    Do you have an example of using the appointmentCreated client event to define the output of the <AppointmentTemplate>?

    The ASP.NET client-side templates were in a state of flux lately and we preferred to wait until things settle down. This is now a fact after ScottGu announced that they'll be implemented as a jQuery plug-in.

    We'll resume our work and I hope we'll have an example out soon.

    The current Web Services example uses jQuery (but not templates) to customize the appointments. This is a valid approach for simpler scenarios and you might want to check out the appointmentCreated event handler in the online demo.

    Best wishes,

    Hello there

    Just wondering if there are any news on this. I need to customize my appointment (add an extra check box) and I’m using a web service.

    Hello Jose,

    Thank you for your inquiry. Since there wasn't much demand for such a feature, we decided to drop it in favor of some other features such as Odata binding and improved Time Zones support. The jQuery template plugin used in the demo is the only way to customize the appointment in Web Service binding mode.
