    I am trying to create a week view for the kendo scheduler, in which the week day columns adjust in width depending on the amount of events for particular major tick. Currently the issue is that if i have more than 1 event per tick the events widths shrink and i can no longer see any relevant information. when my system may produce 10 events per tick all the events are then reduced to thin coloured line.

    I've tried setting fixed width and altering widths on data bound, extending the current week view and creating a custom week view from your Implement More Events Button in Week View of Scheduler.

    Then i decided to pivot and try stack the events in a similar fashion to boostrap columns but


    this thread stated that its not possible to alter events positioning or ordering, is this true?

    Is there any direction you can point me in or any advise you can give me?

    because im pretty stumped at this point

    King regards

    Hello Andy,

    Yes indeed the events in Kendo Scheduler are positioned after a series of complicated calculations various case dependencies and that is why changing this behavior is not supported by the widget. In such cases we usually recommend using a Tooltip as for example it is done in this help topic as a good design decision for such cases with small or thin events. If it is not a possible solution the only other approach is to build a Custom View and implement a new completely different rendering of the events.
