    I would like to be able to use the scheduler to sow milestone events or reminder/appointment events.

    A milestone event would have a day but not start or end time associated with it. It would be used to flag that something should happen or have happened on/by a particualr day.

    A reminder/appointment event would have a day and a start time, but not an end time associated with it, eg a Dentist appointment at 2:00pm today or Get Report to Boss by 5:00 pm.

    Both these features could be fudged by changing the display on the calendar so that it only displays 0, 1 or two dates (the event edit dialog currently requires two different times to be entered). But I cannot see how to do this. Can it be done, and if so how?

    I think that both of these types of scheduler events would be useful additions for future releases.

    Can the default height of a scheduler event be modified? At the moment in many instances nothing can be seen other than the start and end times of an event if the width of the scheduler component is not full screen. It would be useful to be able to increase the display height of an event so that a couple of extra lines of information could be displayed.

    It would be good to have more built in support for mouse over event of a scheduler event. At the moment there is a tool tip showing the event Tilte, but it would be good to have options to automatically also display Place and Descriptions details when the mouse is over an event in the scheduler.

    Hello Barry,

    The RadScheduler control is one of the latest additions to our offering and we are actively working on it.
    We will definitely be working on all of the features that you mention as you are not the only person to ask for them. Unfortunately I cannot promise that these features will be available in the upcoming SP release (due this week). However they will most probably be implemented in time for the Q1 2009 release.

    Sincerely yours,
    the Telerik team

    Hello Tommy Kan,

    We implemented a feature that provides control over the appointment title.

    You could look at this thread for more information:

    You could also modify the appointment edit dialog or make an entirely different one.
    More information about that you can find here:

    And to have custom tooltip text you could use the ToolTipText property of IEvent like bellow:

    this.radScheduler.Appointments[0].ToolTipText = "Custom tool tip"
