DxSchedulerDataStorage.AppointmentStatusSource Property

Specifies an appointment status data source.

Namespace: DevExpress.Blazor

Assembly: DevExpress.Blazor.v22.2.dll


public IEnumerable AppointmentStatusSource { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

A collection of objects with appointment status data.


The appointment displays its status as a colored strip on the left edge that indicates the availability state. The Scheduler has a built-in collection of status values:

Scheduler - Default appointment statuses

You can use the AppointmentStatusSource property to create a collection with your own status 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>

@code {
    public class StatusObject {
        public int Id { get; set; }
        public string StatusCaption { get; set; }
        public System.Drawing.Color StatusColor { get; set; }
        public string CssClass { get; set; }
        public string MyCustomField { get; set; } // A custom field
        // Specify appointment mappings here.
        // ...
        AppointmentStatusSource = new List<StatusObject>() {
            new StatusObject() {
                Id = 1,
                StatusCaption = "Resolved",
                StatusColor = System.Drawing.Color.LightBlue,
                // Uncomment the line below and comment the line above to specify other style options.
                //CssClass = "status1-style",
                MyCustomField = "Custom text for the 'Resolved' status",

                StatusCaption = "In process",
                StatusColor = System.Drawing.Color.LightGreen,
                // Uncomment the line below and comment the line above to specify other style options.
                //CssClass = "status2-style",
                MyCustomField = "Custom text for the 'In process' status",
        AppointmentStatusMappings = new DxSchedulerAppointmentStatusMappings() {
            Id = "Id",
            Caption = "StatusCaption",
            Color = "StatusColor",
            // Uncomment the line below and comment the line above to specify other style options.
            //CssClass = "CssClass",
            // Map the source object's custom field to the status item's custom property.
            CustomFieldMappings = new List<DxSchedulerCustomFieldMapping> {
                new DxSchedulerCustomFieldMapping { Name = "MyCustomProperty", Mapping = "MyCustomField" }

    .status1-style {
        background-color: lightblue;
        border-color: blue;
    .status2-style {
        background-color: lightgreen;
        border-color: green;

Scheduler Appointment Custom Status


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.
