We are using web services binding with the RadScheduler. When a new appointment is added to the scheduler, the service returns a list of appointments in the OnClientRequestSuccess method.  We would like to access the inserted appointment from this list and use it after the service has completed. However, the item is not an SchedulerAppointment object. What is the best way to convert/cast the returned item to a SchedulerAppointment object?

One option we tried was to get the appointment ID from the item and then retrieve the SchedulerAppointment directly from the Scheduler using the findByID method. However, it appears that the scheduler has not been refreshed when the OnClientRequestSuccess method is called, so the appointment is not found. At what point is the scheduler refreshed?

Hi Anthony,

I am not sure what exactly you need to accomplish, but I wonder if you can use the OnClientAppointmentWebServiceInserting event for this case.

Hi Peter,

We tried that event, however it didn't accomplish our goal. We want to get access to the newly created appointment object including the new appointment ID right after the appointment has been saved. The other approaches we tried are as follows:

1. We used the Result object in OnClientRequestSuccess to get the returned list of objects and the new item. However, the new item returned fropm was not actually a RadScheduler appointment object. We are not sure how to convert the returned item to a schedulerappointment.

2. We retrieved the ID from the new item object and tried to do a lookup of the item in the RadScheduler. However, at this point, the new item is not actually available in the RadScheduler.

Can you please suggest the best approach for retrieving the new schedulerappointment object with the ID after the WebServices insert event?

Thanks

Hi Anthony,

Please, try the following code and let me know if it was helpful:
function OnClientRequestSuccess(sender, eventArgs)
       {
               var lastAppointmentDataObject =  eventArgs.get_result()[eventArgs.get_result().length-1];
               if(lastAppointmentDataObject != null)
                   alert("Lastly inserted appointment with subject '" + lastAppointmentDataObject.Subject + "' and ID: " + lastAppointmentDataObject.ID);
       }

Hi Peter,

We did try that already but it only gives us the ID of the appointment. As mentioned, we are trying to get the SchedulerAppointment object, not just the ID. We cannot use the lastAppointmentDataObject because it is not a SchedulerAppointment object. We tried to do a lookup in the Scheduler to get object using the ID, but the appointment is not in the Scheduler at the point where the OnClientRequestSuccess method is called.

Is there a way to create a SchedulerAppointment object from the lastAppointmentDataObject object? If not, at what point is the Scheduler updated with the new appointment so that we can access it?

Thanks

Hello Anthony,

Yes, you can create an appointment object with the client API:

var apt = new Telerik.Web.UI.SchedulerAppointment();
apt.set_subject(lastAppointmentDataObject.Subject);
apt.set_start(startTime);
apt.set_end(endTime);


Kind regards,
Peter
