Hi there,

I'm trying to assign resources to appointments in the code behind. When I assign them, the appointment displays the correct resource when I edit the appointment, however the appointment itself is displayed in the blank resource column.

Here is the XAML:
<telerik:RadScheduleView x:Name="ScheduleView" SnapAppointments="True">
    <telerik:RadScheduleView.ResourceTypesSource>
        <telerik:ResourceTypeCollection>
            <telerik:ResourceType DisplayName="Room" Name="Room">
                <telerik:Resource DisplayName="Room 1" ResourceName="Room 1" ResourceType="Room"/>
                <telerik:Resource DisplayName="Room 2" ResourceName="Room 2" ResourceType="Room"/>
            </telerik:ResourceType>
        </telerik:ResourceTypeCollection>               
    </telerik:RadScheduleView.ResourceTypesSource>
    <telerik:RadScheduleView.GroupDescriptionsSource>
        <telerik:GroupDescriptionCollection>
            <telerik:ResourceGroupDescription ResourceType="Room" ShowNullGroup="True"/>
        </telerik:GroupDescriptionCollection>
    </telerik:RadScheduleView.GroupDescriptionsSource>
    <telerik:RadScheduleView.ViewDefinitions>
        <telerik:DayViewDefinition DayStartTime="7:00" DayEndTime="19:00" MajorTickLength="1h" MinorTickLength="10min"/>
        <telerik:WeekViewDefinition DayStartTime="7:00" DayEndTime="19:00"/>
    </telerik:RadScheduleView.ViewDefinitions>
</telerik:RadScheduleView>

And here is the code behind:
private ObservableCollection<Appointment> appointments;
void ExamRoomScheduler_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{           
    appointments = new ObservableCollection<Appointment>();
    ScheduleView.AppointmentsSource = appointments;
 
    ExamRoomAppointment temp;
 
    temp = new ExamRoomAppointment("Test", DateTime.Now, DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(20), "Room 1");
    appointments.Add(temp);           
    temp.Resources.Add(new Resource() { ResourceType = "Room", ResourceName = "Room 1", DisplayName = "Room 1" });
}

ExamRoomAppointment inherits from Appointment.

I must be doing something wrong here but I can't seem to figure it out!

Thanks,
Anthony

Hi Anthony,

If you need to add resources at run-time I would suggest that you check the following help article from our documentation:
http://www.telerik.com/help/wpf/radscheduleview-howto-update-resources.html#Adding_Resources

I'm also attaching here a sample project which demonstrates how to completely set up the resources in the code behind, please check the attachment.

Hope this helps. If you have any other questions let us know.

Thanks Kalin,

Unfortunately that's not what I'm looking for. Adding the resources at run time isn't a problem. The issue is that I need to add the resources to the appointments so that they are grouped properly. When I assign the resources to the appointment the appointment editor shows the resource but the appointment is displayed in the blank group.

Hi Anthony,

In order to have the appointment assigned to a particular resource you should add the same instance of the resource which is added to the ScheduleView resources. Please checked attached the same sample project which is modified to show the exact approach.

Hope this will work for you.
