    I wanted to change the Edit Appointment Dialog window labels and dropdownlist values.
    For example - Insted if "Subject label" i want to display "Patient Name" and i want to change Dropdownlist values?
    1) I have followed the below step but not possible to change the label text but i can do the label visible false or true.
    2) How to change the Dropdownlist vaues?
    3) How to add one more dropdownlist inside the Edit Appointment Dialog Window?



    appointmentDialog = null;



    private void radSchedulerDemo_AppointmentEditDialogShowing(object sender, AppointmentEditDialogShowingEventArgs e)




    if (this.appointmentDialog == null)




    this.appointmentDialog = new CustomAppointmentDialog();



    e.AppointmentEditDialog =








    public class CustomAppointmentDialog : EditAppointmentDialog




    public CustomAppointmentDialog()









    this.Controls["lblSubject"].Text = "Patient";

    Hi Mahesh,

    You can do this by inheriting from the default appointment edit dialog, making any changes that  you want, and then telling RadScheduler to use your custom dialog using the AppointmentEditDialogShowing event.

    Once you have inherited from the default dialog you will be able to access the editor controls through the protected fields. And the labels you will be able to access through the controls collection.

    Or if all you want is to change the text properties of the labels you could create a very simple localization provider.
    You can find an example for all this in the following forum thread:

    Regarding the values in the combo boxes, you can change the items in the Backgrounds, Statuses and Resources collections of RadScheduler.

    Do write back if you need more information or  have more questions.

    I would like to do the same things as this person, but the examples on this thread are all in C# and i'm using VB.Net... any help?

    Im using VS2008 (C# is not an option at this point or i would have been done days ago)
    I am using RadScheduler and i want to add some options to it (such as client being booked, ane employee being booked. I have successfully inherited the edit appointments form, i think, but its empty. No controls are on the form.

    Thank you

    Hi Will H,

    Did you try using our code converter to convert the code to VB.NET:

    Also, there is an example of inheriting the default appointment edit dialog and adding more details in the data binding example of RadScheduler (in our Demo application).

    Hello alexander arias,

    Please follow the instructions in the custom EditAppointmentDialog's help topic.

    You could also inherit the EditAppointmentDialog, hide the txtSubject field, add your dropdown and override the EditAppointmentDialog methods LoadSettingsFromEvent and ApplySettingsToEvent in order to read from appointment to your dropdown and write to appointment from your dropdown.

    The link is no longer work. I need to make the subject from text to rad combobox for edit and insert. I'm currently using Advanced form template to achieve all the information in radscheduler. And I'm using ajax for webform, not winform. Please help. Thanks.
