Hi,

We are considering using RadScheduler for a new project and we have one question. The client has a specific request to be able to copy and paste appointments using keyboard shortcuts (ctrl+c and ctrl+v). 

Can this be done?

Thanks,
Daryl

Hello Daryl,

Unfortunately using keyboard combinations for copy/paste of appointments is not available at this moment.

Hi Veronica,

I may have found a workaround to this problem.

<telerik:RadScriptBlock ID="RadScriptBlock1" runat="server">
     <script type="text/javascript">
         var selectedApt;
         var activeTimeslot;
         var copiedApt;
 
         function OnClientAppointmentClick(sender, eventArgs) {
             if (eventArgs.get_appointment()) {
                 selectedApt = eventArgs.get_appointment();
             }
         }
 
         function OnClientTimeSlotClick(sender, eventArgs) {
             if (eventArgs.get_targetSlot()) {
                 activeTimeslot = eventArgs.get_targetSlot();
             }
         }
 
         function onKeyDown() {
             // current pressed key
             var pressedKey = String.fromCharCode(event.keyCode).toLowerCase();
 
             if (event.ctrlKey && pressedKey == "c")
             {
                 copiedApt = selectedApt;
             }
 
             if ((event.ctrlKey && pressedKey == "v") && copiedApt && activeTimeslot) {
                 var newAppointment = new Telerik.Web.UI.SchedulerAppointment();
                 var startTime = activeTimeslot.get_startTime();
                 var endTime = new Date(activeTimeslot.get_startTime());
                 endTime.setTime(endTime.getTime() + copiedApt.get_duration());
                  
 
                 newAppointment.set_start(startTime);
                 newAppointment.set_end(endTime);
                 newAppointment.set_subject(copiedApt.get_subject());
 
                 var scheduler = $find('<%= RadScheduler1.ClientID %>');
                 scheduler.insertAppointment(newAppointment);
 
                 activeTimeslot = null;
             }
         }
     </script>
 </telerik:RadScriptBlock>


Many Thanks,
Daryl

Hello Daryl,

I'm glad you've found a solution. Yes, catching the key pressed via Javascript is the way for solving this.

Please feel free to ask me if you have further questions.
