Hi Chris,

Unfortunatly, I haven't been able to find a way to do this. It seems that this part of the appointment is painted using a StatusBrush as part of the AppointmentElement and cannot be changed.
You can however set your own status types in the following way:
Me.RadScheduler1.Statuses.Clear()
Me.RadScheduler1.Statuses.Add(New AppointmentStatusInfo(1, "In Office", Color.Green, Color.Orange, AppointmentStatusFillType.Solid))

I hope that helps

Hi Chris Scallion,

Thank you for writing.

At the moment this property is not exposed, but you can access it through reflection. The code snippet bellow changes the value of the private field appointmentTypeAreaWidth which contains the width of the status area.
void radScheduler1_AppointmentFormatting(object sender, SchedulerAppointmentEventArgs e)
{
    typeof(AppointmentElement).GetField("appointmentTypeAreaWidth", System.Reflection.BindingFlags.Instance | System.Reflection.BindingFlags.NonPublic).SetValue(e.AppointmentElement, 15);
}

If you have other questions, do not hesitate to contact me.

Hello Dobry,

I found that the suggested solution using reflection does not work if the Scheduler is displaying appointment in Resources mode.
Here is my code:
Private Sub radScheduler1_AppointmentFormatting(sender As Object, e As SchedulerAppointmentEventArgs) Handles radScheduler1.AppointmentFormatting
       
    Type.GetType("AppointmentElement").GetField("appointmentTypeAreaWidth", Reflection.BindingFlags.Instance Or Reflection.BindingFlags.NonPublic).SetValue(e.AppointmentElement, 10)
 
End Sub

Am I missing something? Or this does not indeed work in Resources mode?

Thanks.

Hi Richard,

Thank you for your question.

I confirm that running the code you have provided results in an Object reference exception. The problem seems to be in the C# to VB conversion. Please try the following code:
Private Sub radScheduler1_AppointmentFormatting(sender As Object, e As SchedulerAppointmentEventArgs) Handles radScheduler1.AppointmentFormatting
        GetType(AppointmentElement).GetField("appointmentTypeAreaWidth", Reflection.BindingFlags.Instance Or Reflection.BindingFlags.NonPublic).SetValue(e.AppointmentElement, 10)
    End Sub

I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, feel free to ask.
