    I am using RadScheduler to bind to Exchange server via Exchange Web Services. The idea is to pull out appointments from different mailboxes on Exchange and display them in the scheduler. I've managed to accomplish this by putting all appointments into a generic list and use that list as a DataSource for RadScheduler. This works like a charm. I need to be able to group these appointments by mailbox (e-mail address of the owner of that appointment). First, I tried to display appointment owner as a resource. There were no way I could accomplish this. Then, it came to my mind that I could display appointment owner as a Custom Attribute.
    My question is, how can I programmatically insert Custom Attribute value while appointments are binding?

    Hello Jasmin,

    It should be possible to implement resources and resource grouping in this scenario. Please, take a look at the Binding to Generic List demo as proof-of-concept.

    Kind regards,

    Thank you, I've managed to accomplish this task using generic binding lists.
    Although you provided Exchange provider, I highly recommend NOT TO USE IT. I recommend using Exchange Web Services Managed API 1.2. It gives great flexibility.
