Hi,

I have created a database for the RadScheduleView following Telerik
tutorials. I am able to create the database, save appointments with their
categories, time markers etc.

When I load the app, I have few appointments displayed
correctly, I can double click to edit them, I can drag them around, and expand
or shrink them. However there is one problem, if I load the app and the first
thing I do is try to expand or shrink an appointment I get this:

Hi,

Are there any news on the above question? Ive added the logic for the recurrence now, and exactly the same happens, I can not expand or shrink any of the appointment, unless i first drag it on the screen.

Kind Regards

Hello Colin,

I have tested our Binding to Database example for WPF uploaded here, but I did not manage to reproduce the reported issue. Could you give us more details on your approach, what is different in your project than the one I referenced? Any additional information you could provide will be of great help.

I am looking forward to your reply.

Regards,
Yana

Hi Yana,

Actually there is not much difference, I am using Entity Framework 6.1 code first, and I think that the only thing.
Please have a look at the Example app, and tell me what needs to be changed. This contains 4 projects,

-         CreateDatabase, is just a console app which
drops and creates a database, only when I want to quickly clear the data for
testing, or I made change to the model and want them to be applied (without
migrations because im just testing at the moment)

-         TelerikScheduleViewDatabase (contains the POCOs and the helper classes)

-        ScheduleViewTest – is a wpf app which I build to test the ScheduleView behaviour with the above POCOs and database (code behind).

-         TestApp – is the wpf part that I took from the project you provided in the link, it is to test to see if your project would work (mvvm).

If you run any of the wpf apps, and add some appointments save them (the first one saves when you add an appointment and click ok, the second one has a save button on the scheduleView), close the app and run it again, then try to expand that appointment you created you will get a null reference axception, however if you drag and drop it first and then try to expand that’s absolutely fine and it will work. The only exception from that is in Timeline view I can expand the appointment straight after loading the app.

Please have a look at the Example app, and tell me what needs to be changed.

Kind Regards

Hi Colin,

I am pasting the reply from the support ticket regarding the same issue:

The reason for the reported exception is that initially the appointments do not have their TimeZone property set. In your SqlAppointment.cs class (inside TelerikScheduleViewDatabase project), you should implement the TimeZone property like this:


private TimeZoneInfo timeZone;
 
public TimeZoneInfo TimeZone
{
    get
    {
        if (this.timeZone == null)
        {
            return TimeZoneInfo.Local;
        }
        return this.timeZone;
    }
    set
    {
        if (this.timeZone != value)
        {
            this.timeZone = value;
            this.OnPropertyChanged("TimeZone");
        }
    }
 }

This should fix the error.

Yana
