Hello,

Is it possible to schedule entries over multiple days? For example, I have a piece of equipment that will be unavailable from 9/24/07 through 9/28/07.   I set my start date as 9/24 and end date as 9/28.  The scheduler is only showing this item on the 9/24 day.

Thanks,
Wayne

Hi Wayne,

This is a bug that concerns only the month view. It has been fixed already and the fix will be included in the next Service Pack.

Wayne and Tsvetomir,

Thanks for addressing this issue. We just installed the trial and are excited about using it, but the multi-day spanning on the month view is critical for us. So, I have two questions:

1. When will the next service pack be available, so this bug will be fixed?

2. On the month view, when a task spans multiple days, is it possible to have a continuous box, across which the task name can also span? If I remember correctly from earlier demos on your site, if a task spanned 4 days, it would look like 4 separate tasks on 4 days in a row. While this is so-so, it is clearer to have a continuous box, which also prevents the task name from being truncated.

#1 is really important, but #2 would be very nice to have.

Thanks,
Don

I too would love to see this fix and also the ability to span all day task descriptions across the days (#2 in Don's post).

I intend to use All Day only schedulling for one of my apps and this would be a real plus point.

Thanks

Hi Wayne,

The Service Pack is planned for mid-October. I am attaching a trial hotfix here, so you can continue your evaluation without this bug in your way. If anyone needs a dev version, please feel free to open a ticket and we will send it to you.

We will also try to implement multi-day spanning in month view, as it is implemented in the week view in time for the SP.

Thanks Wayne,

My main requirement would be to have multi-day spanning in Month View which is a shame but I'll wait for the next release.

Many Thanks
Mark

Yes, the multi-day spanning in the month view is exactly what I need too.

I came across another issue.  The week view appears to be "short" by one day.  For example, a schedule of 9/17 - 9/21 is showing an end day of 9/20.  Is that being addressed in the next fix?

Thanks for the support.

Hi Wayne,

We will try to implement spanning in month view for the service pack, but we might not be ready on time for it.

This behavior of the all-day appointments is by design. In your example the appointment is interpreted as
starting at 9/17 00:00 and ending at 9/21 00:00. The inclusive range is 9/17, 9/18, 9/19 and 9/20.

The advanced form has some logic to compensate for the discrepancy in the range. When creating an all-day appointment it adds one day to it. It does not do that when editing an all-day appointment, as it will creep by one day on each update.

Best wishes,

Dear Tsvetomir,

I wanted to see if you could tell us the status of being able to do the multi-day spanning on the month view in RadScheduler. It remains an important feature request for us.

Thanks!

Hi Don,

Unfortunately, we won't be able to implement multi-day spanning in month view for the upcoming release. Most likely, we will do it for Q1 2008.


Kind regards,

Peter,

Thanks for the update. I'm sorry it won't be out sooner, but I hope you do decide to do it for Q1 2008. Thanks again...

Has anybody created a workaround for this? (re: Rad Scheduler one Day short).  I create an event from 7/14 to 7/18 and only 7/14 thru 7/17 is populated.  Thanks in advance.

Hello Michael,

This is the expected behavior of the all-day appointments. In your example the appointment is interpreted as starting at 7/14 00:00 and ending at 7/18 00:00, so 7/18 is not included in the range.

All the best,

Thank you for your reply.  I know this is how it comes out of the box.  I am wondering if anybody has a work around.  Thanks in advance.

Michael,

We address it by doing this:

protected void RadScheduler1_AppointmentDataBound(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.SchedulerEventArgs e)

{

e.Appointment.End = e.Appointment.End.AddDays(1);

}

That way we don't have to change our underlying data and the issue is "corrected" during binding. I hope that helps.

Thanks,

Donny

Donny,

Thanks for the reply - I will implement it tonight.  Do you know, when editing an all-day appointment, will the date creep by one day on each update?

Again, thanks!

Michael

Michael,

That's a good question. We don't run into that scenario in our app, so I can't offer any guidance there.

Good luck,

Donny

Hi Michael,

You can handle the AppointmentUpdate event to adjust the time of the appointment right before it is sent to the database.
