Remarks

If the AllowAppointmentDrag property is set to Custom, use the SchedulerControl.AllowAppointmentDrag event to specify whether an appointment can be dragged.

Examples

This example demonstrates how to implement custom rules for editing and deleting appointments. The code below allows an appointment to be edited only by its owner (the end-user who created it). To do this it's necessary to set the SchedulerOptionsCustomization.AllowAppointmentEdit and SchedulerOptionsCustomization.AllowAppointmentDelete properties to UsedAppointmentType.Custom, and handle the SchedulerControl.AllowAppointmentEdit and SchedulerControl.AllowAppointmentDelete events to implement custom logic for editing appointments.

using DevExpress.XtraScheduler;
// ...

private void schedulerControl1_AllowAppointmentDelete(object sender, 
    AppointmentOperationEventArgs e) {
   // Allow only the user who created this appontment to delete it.
   e.Allow = CanUserModifyThisAppointment(e.Appointment);
}
private void schedulerControl1_AllowAppointmentEdit(object sender, 
    AppointmentOperationEventArgs e) {
   // Allow only the user who created this appontment to modify it.
   e.Allow = CanUserModifyThisAppointment(e.Appointment);
}
// Determine if the current user is the same 
// as the one who created the specified appointment 
bool CanUserModifyThisAppointment(Appointment apt) {
   object obj = apt.CustomFields["Owner"];
   if (obj == null)
      return true;
   string appointmentOwner = obj.ToString();
   if (appointmentOwner == String.Empty)
      return true;
   return (String.Compare(appointmentOwner, tbUserName.Text, true) == 0);
}

The code below shows how to handle the SchedulerControl.AllowAppointmentDrag event to prevent all-day appointments from being dragged.

schedulerControl1.OptionsCustomization.AllowAppointmentDrag = UsedAppointmentType.Custom;

private void SchedulerControl1_AllowAppointmentDrag(object sender, AppointmentOperationEventArgs e) {
    e.Allow = !e.Appointment.AllDay;
}
