This has to be a bug, the start and end times and display are different in Week View after creating an appointment across multiple days.  I was able to reproduce it using one of your online demos so I wont bother posting code here:

http://www.telerik.com/demos/aspnet/prometheus/Scheduler/Examples/BlackPearl/DefaultCS.aspx

  1. On the demo page, get to Month View (i think it is by default)
  2. Double click on March 5th to create an entry.
  3. Uncheck 'All Day Event' checkbox so you can enter times
  4. set start date/time to Mon March 5th at 1pm
  5. set end date/time to thurs March 8th at 5pm, Click Insert.
  6. This is good and fine in Month View, but now switch to Week View, and go to this week (will show the 4th - 10th).
  7. We see some problems here, first off, in my version I have the All Day row on the top of the Scheduler turned off, so in mine it looks like I only have something scheduled on the 5th and 8th.  In the actual days (not the All Day row), shouldnt it show the 6th and 7th with something scheduled?  Also, look at how far off the time is on thurs the 8th, it starts at 8am, it should start at 1pm.  When you double click on anything though, it shows the correct time.  Bug?  Help please, thank you.
  8. Also try dragging the Monday entry around to a new time (in week view), what it does doesnt even make sense and not even sure how to explain it.

Wow, it does the exact same thing in the Day View that i mentioned in first post.  How has no one noticed this stuff??  Do the same entries, but go way back to March 5th - 8th in Day View, 6th and 7th show nothing (if All Day top row is turned off), and the 8th's time is way off.

The link cut off in first post, i was looking at the Black Pearl C# demo.

Wow, i hate to keep going here, but now go to Mon March 5th in the day view, and drag it from 1pm to an earlier time (say 8:30am), now the ending time is way off, and jumped to 11pm at night, even though when you double click on it it says 12:30pm.   Ummm......

Hi Joe,

I believe that you are confusing recurring appointments with long appointments spanning over several days.

When you uncheck the all day event checkbox and enter the said dates, you create a single event that starts on March 5th 1pm, continues through the entire March 6th and March 7th and ends at March 8th 5pm. Since the event is active for the entire 6th and 7th of March, it is displayed in the all day row for these days.

Recurring appointments on the other hand, are used when you want an appointment from 1pm to 5pm and repeats every day. I believe this is what you are trying to achieve.

When inserting an appointment, check the "Recurring Appointment" checkbox, uncheck the "All day event" checkbox if needed and enter March 5th 1pm as the start time and March 5th 5pm as the end time. These are the start/end time of the first occurrence of the "recurring series". Click the "Daily" radiobutton then click the "End after:" radiobutton and enter 4 in the textbox next to it. This will make the appointment to repeat each day for a total of 4 days. Click Insert and see the result in Week View.

Please let us know if we are missing something or if we misunderstood your scenario.

Kind regards,

OK, that clears up most of my confusion, but I will re-write 7 and 8 in my first post, still a little odd:

  • I still have the All Day row on the top of the Scheduler turned off, so in mine it looks like I only have something scheduled on the 5th and 8th.  What is the point in having the option to turn All Day row off, you cant see these extended appointment entries.  Why even have that All Day row?  How can show the days in between have this extended appointment without the All Day row.  Ive created a scheduler using the ASP.NET calendar before (which it looks like you did), it would almost be more complicated to do it the way you guys did (not showing on days in between). 
  • And this one:  Also try dragging the Monday entry around to a new time (in week view), what it does doesnt even make sense and not even sure how to explain it.  Can you explain this, it shrinks the entire 4 or 5 day appointment to a one hour slot, but when you click on it it has the correct times.  thank you.

    Hello Joe,

    The first issue is logged and will be fixed in a next version of RadScheduler - disabling the All Day Row should force All Day events to be displayed in the regular content area.

    We are also looking forward to improving the drag & drop behavior for appointments that consist of several parts as the current behavior is indeed unpredictable.

    Please excuse us for the inconvenience and thank you for reporting these issues. We are always trying to improve our controls further and your feedback is of great value for us. As a token of our gratitude for your involvement, your Telerik points have been updated.

    Ok.....  So next logical question is when and how do i get the next version of rad scheduler?  And you are telling me that the drag and drop pretty much does not work, how can you even release this product if it doesnt work?  Ugh, im going to have to develop my own scheduler i think.  Can i at least turn off the drag and drop functionality then?  How? Or when is this going to be fixed, i have a deadline here.  Thank you
