Hi,

I am using the Resource dropdownlist for my resouces (room/booth/oven selection). How do I remove "ANY" from Resource dropdownlist in the Dialog box? I want to allow the user to be able to select only one resource. Please refer to my attachment.

Best regards,

Dominic

Hello, Dominic,

Please have in mind that as of R1 2021 the EditAppointmentDialog provides UI for selecting multiple resources per appointment. In certain cases (e.g. unbound mode), the Resource RadDropDownList is replaced with a RadCheckedDropDownList.

Otherwise, the default drop down with single selection for resources is shown. To enable the multiple resources selection in bound mode, it is necessary to specify the AppointmentMappingInfo.Resources property. The Resources property should be set to the name of the relation that connects the Appointments and the AppointmentsResources tables.

You can create a derivative of the EditAppointmentDialog class and override its LoadResources method. The cmbResource is the default RadDropDownList, the checkedCmbResource control is RadCheckedDropDownList used for the newly introduced functionality. The Items collection in both controls stores the resource items. You can remove of the items that are redundant in your case. The edit dialog offers the CanHaveMultipleResources method which also allows you to control which of the two resources lists will be displayed considering the returned boolean result.

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.

Hi Dess, can you show me an example of setting the "CanHaveMultipleResources" method in VB ? Thanks.

Hi, Dominic,

I have prepared a sample code snippet demonstrating how to create a custom edit dialog and override its CanHaveMultipleResources method. Then, this dialog can replace the default one in the AppointmentEditDialogShowing event:

Public Class CustomEditAppointmentDialog
    Inherits EditAppointmentDialog
    Protected Overrides Function CanHaveMultipleResources() As Boolean
        Dim defaultValue As Boolean = MyBase.CanHaveMultipleResources()
        Return defaultValue
    End Function
End Class
    Sub New()
        InitializeComponent()

        Dim colors() As Color = {Color.LightBlue, Color.LightGreen, Color.LightYellow, Color.Red, Color.Orange, Color.Pink, Color.Purple, Color.Peru, Color.PowderBlue}
        Dim names() As String = {"Alan Smith", "Anne Dodsworth", "Boyan Mastoni", "Richard Duncan", "Maria Shnaider"}
        For i As Integer = 0 To names.Length - 1
            Dim resource As New Telerik.WinControls.UI.Resource()
            resource.Id = New EventId(i)
            resource.Name = names(i)
            resource.Color = colors(i)
            Me.RadScheduler1.Resources.Add(resource)
        Next i
        Me.RadScheduler1.GroupType = GroupType.Resource

        AddHandler Me.RadScheduler1.AppointmentEditDialogShowing, AddressOf RadScheduler_AppointmentEditDialogShowing
    End Sub

    Dim dialog As CustomEditAppointmentDialog
    Private Sub RadScheduler_AppointmentEditDialogShowing(sender As Object, e As AppointmentEditDialogShowingEventArgs)
        If dialog Is Nothing Then
            dialog = New CustomEditAppointmentDialog
        End If
        e.AppointmentEditDialog = dialog

    End Sub

However, it is important to note that this is a valid code in case you are using at least R1 2021 or newer. Otherwise, the CanHaveMultipleResources method wouldn't be available. In this case, you need to hide the Any item by using the following custom implementation in the edit dialog: 

Public Class CustomEditAppointmentDialog
    Inherits EditAppointmentDialog

    Protected Overrides Sub LoadResources()
        MyBase.LoadResources()
        Me.cmbResource.Items.RemoveAt(0)
    End Sub
End Class

Hi Dess, yes it works now. I think my version is before R1 2021. Thanks for your example and quick response.
