    I need to edit (and to view) some custom fields - for example: "location" or Priority. Priority should be a dropdown (the datasource should be an enum ( enum priority = {low, middle, hight}) location should be a string. 

    I've experimented with RadSchedulerWebForm.aspx and RadSchedulerWebFormAdcancedForm.ascx. I was'nt very successful 

    What is the right way to get the data from aspx to my database - and back.

    does not explain how to use with AdvancedEditTemplate

    And I would like to use the AdvanvedEditTemplate

    Update: works fine.

    Hi Otto,

    For 'location' you should use custom attributes. Simply set CustomAttributeNames="Location" EnableCustomAttributeEditing="true" for RadScheduler and make sure that 'Location' is an existing field in your RadScheduler data source.

    For 'Priority', I recommend you use Resources. For example, see the Defining Resources and open the advanced form. You will see the RadComboBox controls for the 'Room' and 'User' resource.

    If these are your only requirements, then you do not need to use the advanced templates. If you need to display something else in the advanced form, then you can refer to this demo and contact us if you have further questions.

    All the best,

    Wow, so simple.
    This should be added to the demos, somehow. (=CustomAttributeNames="Location" EnableCustomAttributeEditing="true" )
    I was stuck thinking I had to use templates, but this simple forum answer got me going again..!
