    I've implemented Telerik scheduler on timeline view. I am allowing a M:M relationship between my y-axis resource (advocates) and Meetings. Here is what my scheduler looks like:

    Timeline View

    When I double click one of the instances of the meeting, the advanced edit dialog appears. However, in here, none of the advocates are selected as participants in the meeting:

    Advocate Resources - edit meeting dialog

    There are a number of advocates for whom this meeting appears in the timeline. Why do they not get displayed as selected in the edit form?

    The problem doesn't end there. I have a second type of resources (legislators). There is a similar problem here - I have relationships defined for this meeting and 4 legislators, but only the first legislator is checked (and the other three remain unckecked):

    Legislator Resources - edit meeting dialog

    I need to add two other types of resources, and I expect that I will have a similar problem to the two I have already added.

    I have been able to verify visually by changing the grouping of my scheduler and through SQL queries that the relationships in the database are valid. So, why am I unable to see each of these related resources checked? My scheduler code is as follows:

    <telerik:RadScheduler runat="server" ID="RadScheduler1"
        Localization-HeaderMultiDay="Work Week"
        <AppointmentContextMenuSettings EnableDefault="true" />    
        <AdvancedForm Modal="true" />
            <telerik:ResourceType KeyField="Adv_AdvocateID" AllowMultipleValues="true" Name="Advocate" TextField="Adv_FullName" ForeignKeyField="Adv_AdvocateID"
                DataSourceID="AdvocatesDataSource" />
            <telerik:ResourceType KeyField="Leg_LegID" Name="Legislator" AllowMultipleValues="true" TextField="Leg_FullName" ForeignKeyField="Leg_LegID"
                DataSourceID="LegislatorsDataSource" />
        <TimelineView UserSelectable="true" GroupBy="Advocate" GroupingDirection="Vertical" />
        <MultiDayView UserSelectable="false" />
        <DayView UserSelectable="false" />
        <WeekView UserSelectable="false" />
        <MonthView UserSelectable="false" />

    I'm hoping someone can shed some insight into how to correctly display the selected resources in the edit appointment dialog, and I thank you in advance for your help.

    I don't see this question as being that advanced...surely someone would be able to reply, even if it is to tell me to get lost?

    Hi Matthew,

    You need to Implement A Provider That Supports Multi-valued Resources.

    Only custom providers can provide the support to allow multi-valued resources (resources that can have multiple values assigned to a single appointment).

    Kind regards,

    the Telerik team
