This document introduces the ASPxScheduler Control and describes its main capabilities. It contains the reference table, which lists the control's main members, explains its main functionality, and lets you easily identify the necessary APIs.
What Is the ASPxScheduler Control?
The ASPxScheduler Control is the main control of the ASPxScheduler suite. It is represented by the ASPxScheduler class instance. This class is a visual control which implements interactions between end-users and the scheduling application. It is a server-side control, providing client interactivity via AJAX callbacks. The main purpose of this control is to show the scheduled data (represented via Appointments) on a page using one of the five available data views. A view can be grouped either by resources, specified for the appointments, or appointment dates. The ASPxScheduler Control allows appointments to be created, edited and deleted and performs other actions to schedule the end-user timetables in a fashion similar to MS Outlook calendar.
How Does the ASPxScheduler Control Look?
Since the control shows the appointments data using different views, its actual appearance depends upon the common appearance of the corresponding view. In the Day View the scheduler displays its data as follows.
