What's the best way to modify the way that custom resources are displayed?

One my of my developers has created a customprovider for the scheduler, where we have Team Members and Contacts. Team Members will probably be 10-15, but contacts could run into the hundreds, so it's clearly not practical to display checkboxes for every one.

Is it possible to modify the display to use multiselect listboxes instead of checkboxes? What would be even better is to extend it so that I have some kind of add/remove listbox pairs. We've thought about building our own, but it's convenient and practical to have it embedded in the scheduler.

TIA for any suggestions.

Hi Derek,

The best way to change the appearance and functionality of the resource pickers is to use a custom advanced form. This will give you the freedom to use whatever controls you find suitable. Please, refer to these resources:

http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/scheduler/examples/advancedformtemplate/defaultcs.aspx
http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/schedule_advancedformtemplate.html

I hope this helps.

Is it possible to incorporate other data sets that aren't part of the scheduler item? We need to record a list of selected team members, as well as a list of selected contacts, and those lists could get fairly lengthy so we're looking at listboxes with transfer enabled. We've got it working in the interim via a context menu and separate forms, but it would be clean if we could embed it in the same form.

Hi Derek,

Yes, this is possible. The kb article on related RadComboBox controls in the advanced form demonstrates this. I hope you find it helpful.


Kind regards,
