    I have a RadScheduleView that allows the end-user to select slots. I am capturing the selections via RadScheduleView.SelectedSlot, saving those to a collection and the collection is the bind source to RadScheduleView.SpecialSlotsSource so I can reflect back the state of selections. (please see…wantedclickbehavior.jpg)


    Desired Behavior: I only want the end-user to Left-Click on the RadScheduleView to make slot selections (even if the slots are consecutive).


    I need to disable “mouse drag to select several slots” (please see…unwanteddragbehavior.jpg).


    How can this be done?


    Additionally because of the desired behavior…
    How can I disable the keyboard modifiers: CTRL + Left-Click and SHIFT + Left-Click (so to prevent slot’s start – end exceeding the MinorTickLength)


    Thanks in advance…

    Hi Brian,

    We haven't tested such a scenario, but I would suggest to try to customize the SlotSelectionBehavior of the ScheduleView.  To do that you should inherit the SlotSelectionBehavior class and override its GetSelectionOverride method according to your requirements.

    Then attach the custom selection behavior like this:
    <telerik:RadScheduleView x:Name="scheduleView" >   
            <local:CustomSlotSelectionBehavior />

    All the best,

    I am having the same issue, I cannot figure out how to prevent slots from being dragged with the SlotSelectionBehaviour.
    I want the user to only be able to click a slot to select it and not drag it.

    This is the SlotSelectionBehaviour I am currently implementing

     public class CustomSlotSelectionBehavior : SlotSelectionBehavior
            protected override Slot GetSelectionOverride(SlotSelectionState state, Slot currentSlot)
                Slot newSlotSelection = new Slot(currentSlot.Start, currentSlot.End.AddMinutes(15));
                newSlotSelection.IsReadOnly = true;
                return base.GetSelectionOverride(state, newSlotSelection);


    Could you possible give me an example on how to accomplish this?

    Hi Tim,

    Please try the following approach and let us know whether it's suitable for you:

    public class CustomSlotSelectionBehavior : SlotSelectionBehavior
        protected override Slot GetSelectionOverride(SlotSelectionState state, Slot currentSlot)
            if (state.IsContiguousSelection)
                return state.Anchor;
            return base.GetSelectionOverride(state, currentSlot);
