I am upgrading from 2008.2 723 to 2008.3 1125. In the past, I used a slightly customized skin on Scheduler that allows long appointment names to wrap so they are fully visible on the MonthView of the calendar. I did that using this article:

http://www.telerik.com/support/kb/aspnet-ajax/scheduler/how-to-set-the-appointment-s-height-to-accomodate-the-entire-subject-s-text-in-month-view.aspx

I also have appointments that span multiple days. I love the new feature in 1125 that allows those to appear in a single cell across the days. However, if I use the code provided above, it messes up the alignment of the cells (they overlap) when there is a mutli-day appointment that goes into a cell with another appointment.

Is there a way to make this work to have the wrapping of an appointment name in this version? If not, can the the spanning on multi-day appointments be turned off? I'd love to use it, but it's most important that the full text of the appointment be visible at all times.

Thanks!

Hi don,

I just updated this kb article to be applicable for the Q3 2008 version of RadScheduler:

Hi Peter,

Thanks for the update. However, I see that your update to the KB article changes the height of all of the appointments on the calendar, and not just the ones that need to wrap. Under the prior versions, only the appointments that needed to be larger expanded. Since we can't anticipate how many lines the appointment needs to wrap (if at all), we really need it to be dynamic.

While I know that hovering over the task will show the full name, our clients got very upset when they couldn't see the full appointment name without having to hover, so it's important that we can get this to work.

Is there any way to make the appointment heights size dynamically based on the content without creating problems of overlaps with other tasks present on the same date (or on other dates, if the appointment spans multiple days)?

Thanks,

Don

Hi don,

Unfortunately, this is not possible with the new css styling of RadScheduler. We have been trying various workarounds, but none seems to achieve the desired functionality.


Kind regards,
