Hi there!

I'm building a staffing application.
I have a ScheduleView with a DayViewDefinition. Outside of the schedule I have a ListBox with appointments that are predefined in time.
The user drag an appointment and drop it on the schedule on a specific person (it's grouped on resources).
The appointment will now be saved on that person with the predefined time, regardless of where in time it was dropped.

This works fine for me, since I don't care about where it is dropped.
But it looks strange to the user, since he can drop the appointment at for example 8:00 AM, but it actually ends up at 9:00 AM.
Is there any way I can snap the appointment to the predefined time when I'm dragging it over the schedule?


Regards,
Håkan

Hi Håkan,

You could achieve the desired behavior using the ScheduleView DragDropBehavior. You could either override the CanDrop method in order to check if the DestinationSlot is the required one and if not to prevent the drop. Or you could modify the already dropped Appointment by overriding the DragDropCompleted method and change the Start and the End of the Appointment as required. Here is a sample solution of the second scenario:

public override void DragDropCompleted(DragDropState state)
{
    var appointment = state.Appointment as CustomAppointment;
    var scheduleView = state.ServiceProvider.GetService<IDialogProvider>() as RadScheduleView;
 
    scheduleView.BeginEdit(appointment);

      // set the required times
    appointment.Start = appointment.Start.AddHours(1);
    appointment.End = appointment.End.AddHours(1);
    scheduleView.Commit();
 
    base.DragDropCompleted(state);
}

Hope this helps.
