    In this example I have two custom properties (IsBusy and IsFree). I want to update IsFree whenever IsBusy is changed and notify the view. But for some reason the view is not updated until after I have saved and closed the appointment. How can I update the view before the changes are saved?

    MainPageViewModel.cs

    using System; 
    using System.Net; 
    using System.Windows; 
    using System.Windows.Controls; 
    using System.Windows.Documents; 
    using System.Windows.Ink; 
    using System.Windows.Input; 
    using System.Windows.Media; 
    using System.Windows.Media.Animation; 
    using System.Windows.Shapes; 
        
    namespace SampleProject 
        using System.Collections.ObjectModel; 
        
        using Telerik.Windows.Controls.ScheduleView; 
        
        public class MainPageViewModel 
        
            private ObservableCollection<Task> appointments; 
        
            public MainPageViewModel() 
            
                this.appointments = new ObservableCollection<Task>(); 
            
        
            public ObservableCollection<Task> Appointments 
            
                get { return this.appointments; } 
            
        
    }

    Task.cs (custom appointment)

    using System; 
    using System.Net; 
    using System.Windows; 
    using System.Windows.Controls; 
    using System.Windows.Documents; 
    using System.Windows.Ink; 
    using System.Windows.Input; 
    using System.Windows.Media; 
    using System.Windows.Media.Animation; 
    using System.Windows.Shapes; 
        
    namespace SampleProject 
        using Telerik.Windows.Controls.ScheduleView; 
        
        public class Task : Appointment 
        
            private bool isDone; 
        
            private bool isFree; 
        
            public bool IsDone 
            
                get { return this.Storage<Task>().isDone; } 
                set
                
                    this.Storage<Task>().isDone = value; 
                    this.Storage<Task>().IsFree = value; 
                    base.OnPropertyChanged(() => this.IsDone); 
                
            
        
            public bool IsFree 
            
                get { return this.Storage<Task>().isFree; } 
                set
                
                    this.Storage<Task>().isFree = value; 
                    base.OnPropertyChanged(() => this.IsFree); 
                
            
        
            public override IAppointment Copy() 
            
                IAppointment _newTask = new Task(); 
                _newTask.CopyFrom(this); 
                return _newTask; 
            
        
            public override void CopyFrom(IAppointment other) 
            
                Task _theTask = other as Task; 
                if (_theTask != null
                
                    this.IsDone = _theTask.IsDone; 
                    this.IsFree = _theTask.IsFree; 
                
                base.CopyFrom(other);

    Hi Oscar,

    We intentionally update the view only after the user confirms the changes because they might affect the grouping, which could cause the control to reset its UI, which is a potential performance problem. I generally would not recommend changing this behavior, but if you really need to update the ScheduleView when an appointment property changes, you could implement the property using the regular pattern, e.g. without using the Storage() method, but a simple member variable. In addition, you should create a new OnPropertyChanged method (with a different name) that should raise the PropertyChanged event, and call it instead of the original. If you implement the logic like this, however, the Cancel button will not be able to revert the changes.

    Hi,

    Thank you for your answer. But what is the best supported approach to mimic the "cancel" command? And what is the exact purpose of the Storage collection?

    I have my "Cancel" button declared like this:

    <Button Width="96" Height="20" Grid.Column="1" HorizontalAlignment="Right" telerik:RadWindow.ResponseButton="Cancel" Content="Cancel">
        <telerik:CommandManager.InputBindings>
            <telerik:InputBindingCollection>
                <telerik:MouseBinding Command="telerik:WindowCommands.Cancel" Gesture="LeftClick" />
            </telerik:InputBindingCollection>
        </telerik:CommandManager.InputBindings>
    </Button>

    And it does exactly what it did before I implemented the traditional MVVM logic (when I cancel the appointment the changes are not saved). So what is the point of using this "virtual" collection to store my values?
