    I'm trying to create a scheduler to present shift work for users



    This view will require 2 sets of data to show up, one from 7am to 7pm and one from 7pm to 7am.


    Is there a way to programmatically set the start and end times for the screen using Javascript so that when the clock goes to 7am, the view shows 7am to 7pm, and when it goes to 7pm, the screen automatically jumps to 7pm - 7am?


    If the above is not possible, what is the closest way that we can achieve the above functionality?

    Hello Jaesoon,

    In order to set the Scheduler's startTime and endTime options after the widget initialization, the Scheduler has to be destroyed and then re-created with the new options as follows:
      function changeStartEndTime(e) {
        var scheduler = $("#scheduler").getKendoScheduler();
        var options = scheduler.options;
        options.startTime = new Date("2013/10/6 09:00 AM")
        options.endTime = new Date("2013/10/6 12:00 AM");

    Additional information regarding how to correctly destroy Kendo widgets is available in the following article:
