    Is it possible to set the scheduler control in group mode when using webservice binding without doing a postback? The user should be able to switch from group mode to 'normal' mode.

    Hello Benny,

    When in WebService binding RadScheduler pre-renders the tables for all views on the server and sends them on the client. Then it populates the Appointments through the web service. Since the tables are rendered on the server, you have to postback in order to change the grouping, as it involves changing the table layout.

    What I can suggest is to put the RadScheduler inside a RadAjaxPanel or an UpdatePanel, which will improve the performance in this scenario.

    Hi,

    Thank you for your reply. I've been looking into it none the less and been able to achieve the desired result. I now show or hide the table containing the resources names and the columns matching them. Not easy but it worked.
