Just above my RAD Scheduler, I've placed a hyperlink that says "Add a New Appointment".  If double-clicking the RAD Scheduler cell to add a new Appointment isn't intuitive enough for the average User, then the User should know enough to click this link.

I currently have the click event of this link wired up to the JavaScript AppointmentInserting event.  When this event is invoked by double-clicking the RAD Scheduler date cell to add a new Event, I have access to the passed in (sender, eventArgs) values.  Several values are set, our custom Advanced Edit form opens with a modal underlay, and everything works as expected.

Going back to the new hyperlink I've added, I would like the click event of the link to replicate the same functionality as above.  However, I do not have access to the (sender, eventArgs) values.  Ideally, I would like to trick the event handler into thinking that the event was fired from the RAD Scheduler.  Because I do not have access to the (sender, eventArgs) values, the JS event does not function as expected.  The Advances Edit form opens with a modal underlay, but it is soon blown away because I wasn't able to successfully call eventArgs.setCancel(true).

Is this functionality possible? For your reference, I've posted my code below.

Thanks!
Mike

Hi Michael J.,

You can do it. You just need to hard code the start time of the appointment that is being created.
There are two approaches:
  • client-side - use the showInsertFormAt method of the RadScheduler object. It expects a timeslot argument. 
  • server-side - use the ShowInlineInsertForm or ShowAdvancedInsertForm methods of RadScheduler. You need to pass a DateTime object as a parameter.

Please find attached a sample project.

I am trying something similar, but need to rather Edit an appointment from a hyperlink within a RadGrid. I have a list of appointments in the grid and would like the Edit Appointment event to be called with the Appointment.ID. Is this possible? And how would I do it.

To add a complication, I'm using the Scheduler using the RadDock form example as the base for this functionality.

Any help would really be appreciated.

Thanks
Clyde

Hi Clyde,

You can use the ShowAdvancedEditForm server method of RadScheduler. You just need to pass the appointment as a parameter.
