Let me shed some light about RadScheduler :)*Do you have a release date yet ?
RadScheduler should be officially release in our Q2 2007 release. This means at the beginning of September. A preview version should be available at the end of May if everything goes according to plans. Right now we are in the early stages of development and cannot release anything worthy.* Will it show a month long view with mon-sun across the top and 4 rows for the weeks ?
The month view should resemble Outlook's month view. I have attached a screenshot (still a mockup).* Will you be able to redirect the user to a different page when they click an event.
Yes, we will probably expose a "Click" event similar to other controls of our suite.* Will it show multi-day events in the same way as google calendar ? i.e. a box spanning across all the days.
Yes multiday events should span over multiple days (although not visible in my screenshot).* Will it be quick loading ?
As always we will try to produce as little output as possible.*The only thing I forgot to ask was whether it will have iCal export like google calendar. Sorry for all the questions.
We are not sure whether we will implement that feature in the first release but it is in our plans. In fact we are using the iCal format internally for recurrence support.*Will RadScheduler be able to display views that show multiple appointments(tasks) for multiple people(resources) in a fashion similar to ComponentGo scheduler?
RadScheduler will support resources and the user will be able to customize the look and feel of tasks assigned to different resources. However complex views similar to ComponentGo's scheduler will not be possible in the first version of RadScheduler.What platform will you support with this new release? .Net 2.0 only? Or will you support 1.x as well?
As part of RadControls "Prometheus" RadScheduler will support .NET 2.0 only. I am sorry to disappoint some of you but RadScheduler is designed with NET 2.0 in mind - it is utilizing generics, declarative datasources, control state.
In a brief we are trying to take the best out of Outlook and google calendar. Here is a list of the features which we will (try to) implement for the beta:
- Inline and advanced editing (advanced form will be similar to google's)Resources (multiple resource types)
- Recurrence (recurrence will be available from the advanced editing support)
- Event rescheduling by resizing or drag-and-drop
- All day and multiple day events
- Three built-in views - day, weekly and monthly
