The topics in this section cover the fundamental concepts and primary functionality aspects of the ASPxScheduler Suite.

  • Scheduler Elements

    The ASPxScheduler Suite provides components and controls for embedding a scheduling capability into your Web project, and a number of additional controls designed for creating custom end-user forms. These topics introduce the main principles of using these controls, describe how to link them together and configure them to interact with each other.

  • Appointments

    All the events scheduled by end-users are called appointments. This topic gives an overview of an appointment object, lists its main types and provides comprehensive examples of creating and using appointments with the scheduler.

  • Resources

    In real-life scheduling applications, appointments are seldom processed simply "as is", and are usually assigned to different resources.

  • Views

    The scheduler can present the same information about scheduled appointments in a number of different paint styles and layouts - Views. These topics give an overview of Views, View types and give a complete list of the available Views, along with corresponding screenshots.

  • Services

    You can easily enhance a control's functionality or adjust the formatting of numerous text strings displayed in a Scheduler by using Scheduler services.

  • Templates

    Besides setting properties or using styles to amend its default look, ASPxScheduler Web server control enables you to customize its look by using templates.

  • Adaptivity

    In adaptive mode, the ASPxScheduler automatically resizes or rearranges its elements based on the user's device type and page resolution.

  • Client-Side Functionality

    ASPxScheduler provides an advanced client-side API.

  • Callback Commands

    The control is driven by asynchronous calls to the ASPxScheduler Web server control; these calls are accomplished by the Scheduler callback command mechanism. You can issue one of the available commands or create your own to perform a specific task.

  • Scheduler Reporting

    The Scheduler Reporting technique makes use of the XtraReports Suite to provide a printing capability.

  • Time Zones

    This documents describes the role of time zones for correct time representation within ASPxScheduler.

  • Keyboard Shortcuts

    This document lists predefined keyboard shortcuts and provides information on how you can provide custom shortcuts in your web applications.
