All,

Can you please inform me how I can populate the appointment description field thru Javascript.

I have everything working for all other fields except description.  When i double click on the appointment , the advance form does display the description field but it is empty.
I am writing the appointments to am XML file, I see entries for <description></description> , once again blank.

Any advise would be helpful.
function rowDropping(sender, args) {
       // Fired when the user drops a grid row
       var htmlElement = args.get_htmlElement();
       var scheduler = $find('<%= RadScheduler1.ClientID %>');
       var tree = $find('<%= RadTreeView1.ClientID %>');
       var login = $find('<%= LoginName1.ClientID %>');
       var node = tree.get_selectedNode();
       var treenode = tree.get_selectedNode();
       //alert(treenode.get_attributes().getAttribute("Park"));
       var park = treenode.get_attributes().getAttribute("Park");
       if (isPartOfSchedulerAppointmentArea(htmlElement)) {
           // The row was dropped over the scheduler appointment area
           // Find the exact time slot and save its unique index in the hidden field
           var timeSlot = scheduler._activeModel.getTimeSlotFromDomElement(htmlElement);
           //args.get_htmlElement("TargetSlotHiddenField").value = timeSlot.get_index();
           // The HTML needs to be set in order for the postback to execute normally
           //args.set_htmlElement("TargetSlotHiddenField");
           var newAppointment = new Telerik.Web.UI.SchedulerAppointment(); 
           var startTime = timeSlot.get_startTime();
           var endTime = new Date(startTime);
           endTime.setMinutes(endTime.getMinutes() + 30);
           var subject = node.get_text();                    
           newAppointment.set_start(startTime); // This populates
           newAppointment.set_end(endTime); // This populates
           newAppointment.set_subject(subject); // This  populates
           newAppointment.set_description("hello"); // Does not  populate
           newAppointment.set_borderColor("Green"); // Does not change
           newAppointment.set_backColor("DarkGreen");  // Does not  change
           scheduler.insertAppointment(newAppointment);
 
       }

Hi,

You could set description in the OnClientFormCreated event: 
function OnClientFormCreated(sender, args) {
    var mode = args.get_mode();
    if (mode == Telerik.Web.UI.SchedulerFormMode.AdvancedInsert ||
        mode == Telerik.Web.UI.SchedulerFormMode.AdvancedEdit) {
        var descriptionJQueryObject = $telerik.$("[id$='Form_Description']");
        var descriptionRadTextBoxObject = $find(descriptionJQueryObject.attr("id"));
        descriptionRadTextBoxObject.set_value("Add more details about the appointment here.");
    }
}

Sample is attached.
