    I have a Scheduler instance in TimeLine view using Resource grouping. I would like to take a radDropdownlist control and give the user the ability to filter the scheduler to just resources he/she is responsible for on the scheduler. Has anyone be able to filter the resources in Scheduler?

    Hello Tom,

    Thank you for writing.

    Your question has already been answered in the support thread you have opened on the same topic. However, I am posting the answer here as well in order the community to benefit from it. In order to filter the resources in RadScheduler, you can set the new DataSource with the filtered data. Here is a sample code snippet demonstrating how to filter the resources by using a RadCheckedDropDownList:
    DataTable dt = new DataTable();
    SchedulerBindingDataSource schedulerBindingDataSource = new SchedulerBindingDataSource();
    ResourceMappingInfo resourceMappingInfo = new ResourceMappingInfo();
    public Form1()
        dt.Columns.Add("Id", typeof(int));
        dt.Columns.Add("Name", typeof(string));
        dt.Columns.Add("Color", typeof(Color));
        for (int i = 1; i <= 10; i++)
            dt.Rows.Add(i, "Resource" + i, Color.Yellow);
        resourceMappingInfo.Id = "Id";
        resourceMappingInfo.Name = "Name";
        resourceMappingInfo.Color = "Color";
        schedulerBindingDataSource.ResourceProvider.Mapping = resourceMappingInfo;
        schedulerBindingDataSource.ResourceProvider.DataSource = dt;
        this.radScheduler1.DataSource = schedulerBindingDataSource;
        this.radScheduler1.GroupType = GroupType.Resource;
        this.radScheduler1.ActiveView.ResourcesPerView = dt.Rows.Count;
        this.radCheckedDropDownList1.DataSource = dt;
        this.radCheckedDropDownList1.DisplayMember = "Name";
        this.radCheckedDropDownList1.ValueMember = "Id";
        foreach (RadCheckedListDataItem item in this.radCheckedDropDownList1.Items)
            item.Checked = true;
        this.radCheckedDropDownList1.ItemCheckedChanged += radCheckedDropDownList1_ItemCheckedChanged;
    private void radCheckedDropDownList1_ItemCheckedChanged(object sender, RadCheckedListDataItemEventArgs e)
        StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
        foreach (RadCheckedListDataItem item in this.radCheckedDropDownList1.CheckedItems)
            sb.Append("Id = " + item.Value + " or ");
        sb.Remove(sb.Length - 3, 2);
        DataView dv = new DataView(dt);
        dv.RowFilter = sb.ToString();
        schedulerBindingDataSource.ResourceProvider.DataSource = dv;

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions I would be glad to help.
