SchedulerPrintAdapter.SetSourceObject(Object) Method

Specifies the object used to get the scheduling data - the SchedulerStorage or the SchedulerControl object.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraScheduler.Reporting

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraScheduler.v19.1.Core.dll


public abstract void SetSourceObject(
    object sourceObject


Name Type Description
sourceObject Object

A SchedulerStorage or the SchedulerControl object.


This method is used to specify the correct scheduling source for the SchedulerPrintAdapter, despite the likely ambiguity caused by the fact that both the SchedulerStorage and the SchedulerControl can play the role of scheduling source.

The SetSourceObject method is abstract, and is overridden in the SchedulerPrintAdapter descendants.

It is intended for use when the report layout is loaded from the .repx file or a stream, and the type of the print adapter contained in the loaded layout is unknown. The following code snippet illustrates this situation.

using DevExpress.XtraScheduler.Reporting;
using DevExpress.XtraScheduler;
// ...
string reportFileName = "DailyStyle.repx";
// Creates a scheduler adapter for the Scheduler Control on the form
SchedulerControlPrintAdapter PrintAdapter = 
    new SchedulerControlPrintAdapter(this.schedulerControl1);
// Customize the print adapter...
// ...
// Create a new report 
XtraSchedulerReport report = new XtraSchedulerReport();
// Loads the .repx file (only layout, no data)
// Specifies the correct scheduling source even if the type of the scheduler adapter
// in the loaded report is unknown
if(report.SchedulerAdapter != null)
    report.SchedulerAdapter = PrintAdapter;
// Invokes the Report Designer
