    I am creating radScheduler resources by creating a EventId where the key is an employee number.  Like this:

    resource.Id = new EventId([Emp#])

    I later need to add an appointment to radScheduler and assign it to the resource who's Id is that of the EventId([Emp#]).

    How can I get the ResourceId from the collection where the EventId Key that the resource was created with equals [Emp#]?

    Thank you.

    Hello Art,

    Thank you for writing.

    You could iterate the RadScheduler.Resources collection and select the resource which has an Id equal to the searched employee number. 

    I have prepared a small example in which I populate sample data and later in the handler of a button Click event add a new appointment to an employee according to its id. Please see my implementation below:
    public partial class Form1 : Form
        Appointment appointment;
        Random rand;
        public Form1()
            DateTime baseDate = DateTime.Today;
            DateTime[] start = new DateTime[] { baseDate.AddHours(14.0), baseDate.AddDays(1.0).AddHours(9.0), baseDate.AddDays(2.0).AddHours(13.0),
                baseDate.AddDays(1.0).AddHours(17.0), baseDate.AddDays(1.0).AddHours(5.0) };
            DateTime[] end = new DateTime[] { baseDate.AddHours(16.0), baseDate.AddDays(1.0).AddHours(15.0), baseDate.AddDays(2.0).AddHours(17.0),
            baseDate.AddDays(1.0).AddHours(21.0), baseDate.AddDays(1.0).AddHours(8.0)};
            string[] summaries = new string[] { "Mr. Brown", "Mr. White", "Mrs. Green", "Ms. Black", "Mrs. Grey" };
            rand = new Random();
            Color[] colors = new Color[]
                Color.LightBlue, Color.LightGreen, Color.LightYellow,
                Color.Red, Color.Orange, Color.Pink, Color.Purple, Color.Peru, Color.PowderBlue
            string[] names = new string[]
                "Alan Smith", "Anne Dodsworth",
                "Boyan Mastoni", "Richard Duncan", "Maria Shnaider"
            for (int i = 0; i < names.Length; i++)
                Resource resource = new Resource();
                resource.Id = new EventId(rand.Next(10000, 20000));
                resource.Name = names[i];
                resource.Color = colors[i];
                Console.WriteLine("Name: " + resource.Name + " No.: " + resource.Id);
            this.radScheduler1.GetDayView().ResourcesPerView = 5;
            this.radScheduler1.GroupType = GroupType.Resource;
            SchedulerDayViewGroupedByResourceElement headerElement = this.radScheduler1.SchedulerElement.ViewElement as SchedulerDayViewGroupedByResourceElement;
            headerElement.ResourceHeaderHeight = 80;
            for (int i = 0; i < summaries.Length; i++)
                appointment = new Appointment(start[i], end[i], summaries[i]);
                appointment.ResourceId = this.radScheduler1.Resources[i].Id;
        private void radButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            int employeeId;
            bool isInt = int.TryParse(this.radTextBox1.Text, out employeeId);
            if (isInt)
                IResource resource = this.radScheduler1.Resources.Where(r => (int)r.Id.KeyValue == employeeId).FirstOrDefault();
                if (resource != null)
                    appointment = new Appointment();
                    appointment.ResourceId = resource.Id;

    I am also sending you a .gif file showing how the scheduler behaves on my end.

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions please do not hesitate to write back.
