Resource Interface

Defines a common attribute which can be assigned to appointments to group them.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraScheduler

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraScheduler.v22.1.Core.dll

Declaration

public interface Resource :
    IPersistentObject,
    IBatchUpdateable,
    IDisposable,
    IIdProvider

Remarks

The Resource represents a common attribute which can be assigned to appointments to group them and facilitate the task of managing the time of resources and people groups under a single View. An appointment can be associated with a resource by setting the appointment’s Appointment.ResourceId property to the required resource’s unique identifier.

In addition to the members inherited from the PersistentObject class, the Resource class provides an interface enabling a resource instance’s caption (Resource.Caption), color (Resource.Color), unique identifier (PersistentObject.Id) and visibility (Resource.Visible) to be specified.

Use the SchedulerStorageBase.CreateResource method to create a resource. Add it to the persistent storage using the ResourceStorageBase.Add method. Resources are maintained within the ResourceStorageBase.Items collection of a ResourceStorage object which is referenced by the SchedulerStorage.Resources property of the SchedulerStorage component.

An instance of the Resource can be accessed via the ResourceStorageBase.Item property of the ResourceStorage object.
