    I have created my own advanced form "AdvForm.ascx"

    At the top of my .aspx file i have put:

    <%@ Register  tagprefix="schedular" tagname="AdvForm"  src="AdvForm.ascx"%>

    Then further down in the scheduler i have put the following:

    <script type="text/javascript">   
            //<![CDATA[
     
                // Dictionary containing the advanced template client object
             // for a given RadScheduler instance (the control ID is used as key).
             var schedulerTemplates = {};
             
             function schedulerFormCreated(scheduler, eventArgs) {
             // Create a client-side object only for the advanced templates
             var mode = eventArgs.get_mode();
             if (mode == Telerik.Web.UI.SchedulerFormMode.AdvancedInsert ||
                        mode == Telerik.Web.UI.SchedulerFormMode.AdvancedEdit) {
             // Initialize the client-side object for the advanced form
             var formElement = eventArgs.get_formElement();   
             var templateKey = scheduler.get_id() + "_" + mode;
             var advancedTemplate = schedulerTemplates[templateKey];
             if (!advancedTemplate)
             {
             // Initialize the template for this RadScheduler instance
             // and cache it in the schedulerTemplates dictionary
         var schedulerElement = scheduler.get_element();
         var isModal = scheduler.get_advancedFormSettings().modal;
         advancedTemplate = new window.SchedulerAdvancedTemplate(schedulerElement, formElement, isModal);
         advancedTemplate.initialize();
     
         schedulerTemplates[templateKey] = advancedTemplate;
     
                            // Remove the template object from the dictionary on dispose.
         scheduler.add_disposing(function() {
                                schedulerTemplates[templateKey] = null;
         });
             }
     
             // Are we using Web Service data binding?
             if (!scheduler.get_webServiceSettings().get_isEmpty()) {
             // Populate the form with the appointment data
             var apt = eventArgs.get_appointment();
             var isInsert = mode == Telerik.Web.UI.SchedulerFormMode.AdvancedInsert;
             advancedTemplate.populate(apt, isInsert);
             }
             }
             }
                 
            //]]>
            </script>
    <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" Runat="server">
            <scripts>
                    <asp:ScriptReference Path="AdvancedForm.js" />
                </scripts>
            </telerik:RadScriptManager>
             
                
            <br />
            <telerik:RadScheduler ID="RadScheduler1" runat="server" EnableAdvancedForm="true"
                EnableDescriptionField="true" OnClientFormCreated="schedulerFormCreated">
                 
                <AdvancedForm Modal="true" />
                  <AdvancedInsertTemplate>
                    
                     <schedular:AdvForm ID="AdvForm1" runat="server" Mode="Insert" />
                       
                 </AdvancedInsertTemplate>
                 
                 
            </telerik:RadScheduler>
    Is anyone able to tell me whey when i double click on the scheduler in run-time i.e. add appointment, nothing happens? That is the advanced form control is not popping up.

    Hello Abdul,

    Registering the advanced form and adding the user control in the page is not enough. You'll need to add bindable properties in the advanced form and use bind expressions for them in the markup. Here's an example:

    <AdvancedEditTemplate>
                    <scheduler:AdvancedForm runat="server" ID="AdvancedEditForm1" Mode="Edit"
                        Subject='<%# Bind("Subject") %>'
                        Description='<%# Bind("Description") %>' 
                        Start='<%# Bind("Start") %>'
                        End='<%# Bind("End") %>'
                        RecurrenceRuleText='<%# Bind("RecurrenceRule") %>'
                           Reminder='<%# Bind("Reminder") %>'
                        AppointmentColor='<%# Bind("AppointmentColor") %>' 
                        UserID='<%# Bind("User") %>'
                        RoomID='<%# Bind("Room") %>' />
                </AdvancedEditTemplate>
                <AdvancedInsertTemplate>
                    <scheduler:AdvancedForm runat="server" ID="AdvancedInsertForm1" Mode="Insert"
                        Subject='<%# Bind("Subject") %>'
                        Start='<%# Bind("Start") %>'
                        End='<%# Bind("End") %>'
                        Description='<%# Bind("Description") %>'
                        RecurrenceRuleText='<%# Bind("RecurrenceRule") %>'
                           Reminder='<%# Bind("Reminder") %>'
                        AppointmentColor='<%# Bind("AppointmentColor") %>' 
                        UserID='<%# Bind("User") %>'
                        RoomID='<%# Bind("Room") %>' />
                </AdvancedInsertTemplate>

    Please take a look at this demo for more information.

    Feel free to ask me if you have further questions.

    Error:  Two-way binding is only supported for properties. 'Subject' is not a valid property on 'advform_ascx'

    Hello Abdul,

    You'll need to add bindable property "Subject" in the code-behind of the Advanced Form user control. Here's an example:

    [Bindable(BindableSupport.Yes, BindingDirection.TwoWay)]
        public string Subject
        {
            get
            {
                return SubjectText.Text;
            }
      
            set
            {
                SubjectText.Text = value;
            }
        }

    Please send me your project so I can inspect it and help you.

    Kind regards,

    Hello Abdul,

    Unfortunately I can not investigate your code as you have attached pictures. Have you looked at the project that I made for you in this forum post?

    Merge your code with my project and tell me how it goes.

    Hello Admin,

    I am developing a demo application using the telerik trial version. In the application, I have used the advance form shown in the attached documant. There are two types of resources -Instructor and student. My requirement is that when one will select the instructor from the dropdown in the advance form, the student dropdwon shoul be populated with students related to the selected instructor.
    Please provide the guidance for this functinality as soon as possible. I have to implement similar in the live application.

    Thanks and Regards,
    Roshani

    Hello Admin,

    For the functinality mentioned in the above post, I also tried using the Custom advance form but still it is not working. Is it possible just to add a event the script that is fired when a instructor is selected from the Istructor resouce control ? Plz provide the guidance as soon as possible.
    I have attached a screenshot in the above post.
    Waiting for your reply...

    Thanks and Regards,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have gone through the demo. My requirement is little bit different.

    In our scenario Admin and Instructors will make the appointments.
    For the Instructor it will be quite easy to implement because there will be only one resource i.e. Student.
    But for Admin, there will be two types of resources - Instructor and Student
    Now the requirement is that when  admin selects the Instructor from Instructor dropdown, another (resource control) Student dropdown must be populated with the students of the selected instructor.

    Is there any way to achieve this?

    Thanks and regards,

    Hello,

    I found this demo project from one of the forums 234043_customadvformandprovider.zip. It is quite useful for me, but it doesn't work on my machine. It gives following error.


    A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified)

    Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

    Exception Details: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified)

    Source Error:

    Line 255:        List<Resource> resources = new List<Resource>();
    Line 256:
    Line 257:        using (DbConnection conn = OpenConnection())
    Line 258:        {
    Line 259:            DbCommand cmd = DbFactory.CreateCommand();


    Also I found that this demo project also contains two resources Teacher and student as in our project. The only difference is that it fetches all the students and in our case, we want to fetch the students of the selected instructor. Can you please suggest some modification to achieve this functionality?

    Thanks in advance,
    Roshani

    Hi Balaji,

    You can use the Advanced Templates as shown in this demo. In the ResourceControl user control you can attach to SelectedIndexChanged event.

    Hello Balaji,

    I you prefer not to use the advanced templates, an alternative solution is to find the resource combobox in the advanced form by handling FormCreated as explained in this help topic - http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/scheduler-customizing-advanced-form-formcreated.html ->sroll down to the section on "Change the selected index of a resource combobox so always one option is preselected". Then you can attach to its SelectedIndexChanged event dynamically.

    I hope this helps.
