I have a RadScheduler with a datasource initated like this:

private void InitiateBookingDataSource()
        {
            if (_appointmentBookings == null) _appointmentBookings = new BindingList<Booking>();
 
            var dataSource = new SchedulerBindingDataSource();
            var mappingInfo = new AppointmentMappingInfo
                                  {
                                      Start = "StartTime",
                                      End = "EndTime",
                                      Summary = "BookingSubject",
                                      Description = "BookingDescription",
                                      BackgroundId = "BackgroundId",
                                      AllDay = "AllDay",
                                      RecurrenceRule = "RecurrenceRule",
                                      Exceptions = "Exceptions",
                                      MasterEventId = "MasterEventId",
                                      Visible = "Visible"
                                  };
 
            mappingInfo.Mappings.Add(new SchedulerMapping("CaseId", "CaseId"));
            mappingInfo.Mappings.Add(new SchedulerMapping("PratId", "PratId"));
            mappingInfo.Mappings.Add(new SchedulerMapping("BoothId", "BoothId"));
            mappingInfo.Mappings.Add(new SchedulerMapping("CaseDesc", "CaseDesc"));
            mappingInfo.Mappings.Add(new SchedulerMapping("BoothDesc", "BoothDesc"));
 
            dataSource.EventProvider.Mapping = mappingInfo;
            dataSource.EventProvider.DataSource = _appointmentBookings;
            dataSource.EventProvider.AppointmentFactory = rsBookings.AppointmentFactory;
 
            rsBookings.DataSource = dataSource;
        }

The appointments are initiated and updated by calling the method below. The problem is that it takes "forever" if the number of appointments exceeds approx 50. Is there a way to speed it up? I have tried async await, but as I am new to that procedure I haven't been able to implement it successfully.

Regards, Jill-Connie Lorentsen
private void InitiateAppointments(IEnumerable<Booking> bookings)
       {
           try
           {
               if (_appointmentBookings == null) _appointmentBookings = new BindingList<Booking>();
                
               rsBookings.Appointments.Clear();
               _appointmentBookings.Clear();
                
               foreach (var booking in bookings)
               {
                   var appointment = booking;
                   appointment.BackgroundId = _booths.Find(b => b.BoothId == booking.BoothId).BackgroundId;
                   appointment.Exceptions.ForEach(b => b.BackgroundId = _booths.Find(x => x.BoothId == b.BoothId).BackgroundId);
                   _appointmentBookings.Add(appointment);
               }
             
           }
           catch (Exception ex)
           {
              MessageBox.Show(ex.Message);
           }            
       }

Hi Jill,

Thank you for contacting us.

Since the problem occurs in the InitiateAppointments method my guess is that the collections you are iterating are quite large. I see that you are iterating the bookings collection, then for each booking you iterate the _booths and then for each exception in each appointment also iterate the _booths collection. All of these operations are with linear complexity which can be slow with large collections. I would recommend you to try to optimize that method. You can also provide me with more details about your case and the collections at hand. Possibly with a sample project which I can investigate locally.

Looking forward to your response.

Regards,
George
