Dear Admin,

I have a RadScheduler with ActiveViewType = Day and RadScheduler1.GroupType = GroupType.Resource which my resources are my Employee.
I wrote this code to create an appointment, but it does not work and my RadScheduler does not show the appointment:

 

 

 

Private Sub NewAppointment(ByVal StartDateTime As Date, ByVal EndDateTime As Date, ByVal EmployeeID As Integer) 
    Dim duration As Long = DateAndTime.DateDiff(DateInterval.Hour, StartDateTime, EndDateTime) 
    Dim apt As New Appointment() 
    apt.Start = StartDateTime
    apt.End = StartDateTime.AddHours(duration)
    apt.Summary = "Summary Test"
    apt.ResourceId = 
    New EventId(EmployeeID) 

    'RadScheduler1.Appointments.Add(apt) 

    RadScheduler1.ActiveView.Appointments.Add(apt)
End Sub

 

What did I wrong?

I am looking forward to hearin from you as soon as possible.
Thank you in advanced.
Kian

Hello Kian,

Thank you for writing.

Generally, it is not a good practise to add an appointment directly to the view. You should add your appointments to the Appointments collection of RadScheduler
Dim StartDateTime As DateTime = Me.radScheduler1.ActiveView.StartDate
Dim apt As New Appointment()
apt.Start = StartDateTime
apt.[End] = StartDateTime.Add(New TimeSpan(1, 0, 0))
apt.Summary = "Summary Test"
apt.ResourceId = New EventId(2)
 
radScheduler1.Appointments.Add(apt)

You will not see the added appointment only if the resources collection of the scheduler does not contain the resource id.

If you have other questions, feel free to write back.

Kind regards,

Hello Ramiro,

If you want to convert some code from vb to c# or from c# to vb, you can always use the Code Converter provided by telerik.

Following is the code that Dobry posted, converted to C#:
DateTime StartDateTime = this.radScheduler1.ActiveView.StartDate;
Appointment apt = new Appointment();
apt.Start = StartDateTime;
apt.End = StartDateTime.Add(new TimeSpan(1, 0, 0));
apt.Summary = "Summary Test";
apt.ResourceId = new EventId(2);
 
radScheduler1.Appointments.Add(apt);

Best Regards,
Emanuel Varga

I copied the code from your example (VB), and I'm getting this error:

   'Telerik.Web.UI.AppointmentCollection.Friend Sub Add(apt As Telerik.Web.UI.Appointment)'
   is not accessible in this context because it is 'Friend'.

Has this functionality changed since your response? It appears that this example worked previously. If not, what am I doing wrong? I'm trying to use this code inside the TimeSlotContextMenuItemClicking event handler to automatically create an appointment without the user having to use the dialog box to name it.

Thanks!

Brad

OK, I think I've figured out the solution to this particular issue. Instead of:

RadScheduler1.Appointments.Add(apt)

I should use this:

RadScheduler1.InsertAppointment(apt)

This seems to work in this case.

Thanks!

The following piece of code creates 2 appointments but at the same date and time . It should be two different items

  Telerik.Web.UI.Appointment meetingAppointment = new Telerik.Web.UI.Appointment();
            meetingAppointment.Subject = "Test";
            meetingAppointment.Start = DateTime.Now;
            meetingAppointment.End = DateTime.Now;
           
            RadScheduler1.InsertAppointment(meetingAppointment);
             
           
            TimeSpan ts = new TimeSpan(0, 12, 0, 0);
     meetingAppointment.Subject = "Test2";
            meetingAppointment.Start = DateTime.Now + ts;
            meetingAppointment.End = DateTime.Now + ts;
            
            RadScheduler1.InsertAppointment(meetingAppointment);

Hello Brad,

Thank you for writing.

This forum concerns RadScheduler for WinForms and your questions seems to concern the RadScheduler for ASP.NET AJAX. Please address your question to the appropriate forums: http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/aspnet-ajax/scheduler.aspx.

Kind regards,

Hi Taher,

You simply have to create an instance of the Appointment class, populate the desired properties of the object and add it to the Appointments collection of RadScheduler. Here is a sample explaining this: http://www.telerik.com/help/winforms/scheduler-appointments-and-dialogs-working-with-appointments.html.

I hope this helps.

Stefan

HI this works for one appointment. But when trying to add to appointments one after another (if used in a loop) only the last appointment is added. How do I add multiple appointments with different start, end, summer, and description dates. Below is code that would only display second appointment and not first:

Dim StartDateTime As DateTime = Me.RadScheduler1.ActiveView.StartDate
        Dim apt As New Appointment()
        apt.Start = StartDateTime
        apt.[End] = StartDateTime.Add(New TimeSpan(23, 59, 59))
        apt.Summary = "Client #0001"
        apt.Description = "Counselor Jeff"
        apt.ResourceId = New EventId(2)


        RadScheduler1.Appointments.Add(apt)


        apt.Start = StartDateTime
        apt.[End] = StartDateTime.Add(New TimeSpan(23, 59, 59))
        apt.Summary = "Client #0002"
        apt.Description = "Counselor Shanti"
        apt.ResourceId = New EventId(2)


        RadScheduler1.Appointments.Add(apt)

Hello,

The issue here comes from the fact that you are only changing the properties of the very same object you have created. If you want to use the same variable, you need to reinstantiate it with "New":
Dim StartDateTime As DateTime = Me.RadScheduler1.ActiveView.StartDate
        Dim apt As New Appointment()
        apt.Start = StartDateTime
        apt.[End] = StartDateTime.Add(New TimeSpan(23, 59, 59))
        apt.Summary = "Client #0001"
        apt.Description = "Counselor Jeff"
        apt.ResourceId = New EventId(2)
 
 
        RadScheduler1.Appointments.Add(apt)
 
       Dim apt As New Appointment()
 
        apt.Start = StartDateTime
        apt.[End] = StartDateTime.Add(New TimeSpan(23, 59, 59))
        apt.Summary = "Client #0002"
        apt.Description = "Counselor Shanti"
        apt.ResourceId = New EventId(2)
 
 
        RadScheduler1.Appointments.Add(apt)

I hope this helps.

Stefan
