DxSchedulerAppointmentStatusItem Class

An appointment’s availability status.

Namespace: DevExpress.Blazor

Assembly: DevExpress.Blazor.v21.2.dll


public class DxSchedulerAppointmentStatusItem :


You can associate a status with an appointment to indicate its availability. The appointment displays its status as a colored strip on the left edge.

Scheduler Appointment

When users create or edit an appointment in the Appointment form, they can select the appointment’s status from the drop-down Status list.

Scheduler - Default appointment statuses

The Caption property specifies the status item’s text. The Color or CssClass property defines the status item’s appearance.


When you use templates to customize appointment appearance, the Color and CssClass property values are not applied to appointments. In the template, you can use the context.Status parameter to access these property values.

Built-In Status Values

The Scheduler has a built-in collection of status values:

  • Free (ID: 0)
  • Working elsewhere (ID: 1)
  • Tentative (ID: 2)
  • Busy (ID: 3)
  • Away (ID: 4)

Custom Status Values

Do the following to substitute the built-in collection of status values with your own values:

  1. Create a DxSchedulerDataStorage object with a simple constructor and specify appointment mappings. See the DxSchedulerAppointmentMappings class description for more information.
  2. Declare a class that stores status options (for instance, StatusObject).
  3. Create a collection of status source objects (StatusObject class instances) and define their options:
    • Id - Specifies the status item’s unique identifier.
    • Caption - Specifies the status item’s caption.
    • Color - Specifies the status item’s color.
    • CssClass - Specifies the CSS class applied to the status item (the background color, border color, and so on). Note that the Color property value overrides the background color specified in the CSS class.
  4. Assign the newly created collection to the storage’s AppointmentStatusSource property.
  5. Create a DxSchedulerAppointmentStatusMappings instance and map the status item’s source fields to the status item’s properties.
  6. Optionally, you can also create custom fields for status items. Define custom fields in the status item’s source object and add these fields to the CustomFieldMappings collection. For instance, the code below adds the MyCustomField field to the StatusObject and maps this field to the status item’s MyCustomProperty.
  7. Assign the DxSchedulerAppointmentStatusMappings instance to the AppointmentStatusMappings property.
<DxScheduler StartDate="@DateTime.Today"
    <DxSchedulerWeekView ShowWorkTimeOnly="true"></DxSchedulerWeekView>

        background-color: lightgreen;
