    Even though I can change using Inherited form, I was wondring if there is a way to completely disable it and replace it with my own form that would update the SQL tables directly (along with other things in the database). My question is about disabling the edit dialog and relacing it with my own...  If you happend to provide examples, would you please provide

    Hi Majd,

    You could, instead of inheriting from the default appointment edit dialog, implement IEditAppointmentDialog interface from scratch. However, you should be aware that the default dialog has logic for a lot of cases and it may not be very easy to implement a new dialog from scratch.

    I would suggest that you share with us (if you can) what do you want to do and why the default dialog cannto be used. Then we could try to improve the dialog so that you can just change the part that you need, instead of implementing the whole thing from scratch.

    I don't understand why you have such a strong coupling between your Schelduler and the EditForm? I understand that some people may be able to use it out of the box or by just extending the EditForm but I believe there are many people who needs to have their own and a total redesigned EditForm. For my company to use these components we have to add a lot of code and time to break your component apart instead of spending time to build things.

    Do you have an example for replacing the EditForm?
    Do you have any update plans for the Scheduler component?

    Hi Thomas Andersson,

    1. We have an example which replaces the EditAppointmentDialog with a custom one. Please take a look at the QSF, RadScheduler's DataBinding demo's source code. In the demo, the scheduler uses a CustomEditAppointmentDialog which extends the default one by adding an e-mail edit field.

    2.  Please,  take a look at the following help article which describes how to customize the edit dialog:

    3. Yes, we are currently working on the new version of the control. One of the major features which will be included in the scheduler control is a TimelineView.  We will also publish on the web site our roadmap very soon and you will be able to get more detailed information about the new features which you should expect in the Q1 release..

    If you have more questions, please feel free to contact us.

    Kind regards,
