SchedulerStorageBase.AppointmentCollectionAutoReloading Event

Occurs when the data source which contains appointment records is modified and appointments are set to be automatically reloaded.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraScheduler

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraScheduler.v23.2.Core.Desktop.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Scheduler.CoreDesktop


public event CancelListChangedEventHandler AppointmentCollectionAutoReloading

Event Data

The AppointmentCollectionAutoReloading event's data class is CancelListChangedEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:

Property Description
Cancel Gets or sets whether the operation performed on the processed event should be canceled.
ListChangedType Gets the type of change. Inherited from ListChangedEventArgs.
NewIndex Gets the index of the item affected by the change. Inherited from ListChangedEventArgs.
OldIndex Gets the old index of an item that has been moved. Inherited from ListChangedEventArgs.
PropertyDescriptor Gets the PropertyDescriptor that was added, changed, or deleted. Inherited from ListChangedEventArgs.


In bound mode, the SchedulerStorageBase object is bound to a data source which contains appointment records. This data source is specified by the DataMember and DataSource properties of the SchedulerStorage.Appointments object.

When the PersistentObjectStorage<T>.AutoReload property of the SchedulerStorage.Appointments object is set to true the data is automatically reloaded. In this case, the SchedulerStorageBase object reloads data from the data source each time an item in the data source is modified, added, moved or removed, a column is added, modified or deleted or multiple changes are made to the data source. The AppointmentCollectionAutoReloading event allows you to prevent data from being reloaded in specific cases. Use the event’s ListChangedType parameter to get the cause of the data source changes. To prevent data from being reloaded in a specific case set the CancelListChangedEventArgs.Cancel parameter to true. Otherwise, the SchedulerStorageBase object will reload data from the data source immediately after the event handler is completed.

The AppointmentCollectionAutoReloading event doesn’t fire in unbound mode and in bound mode if the PersistentObjectStorage<T>.AutoReload property is set to false.


In the following example the SchedulerDataStorage.AppointmentCollectionAutoReloading and SchedulerDataStorage.ResourceCollectionAutoReloading events are handled to prevent appointments and appointment resources from being reloaded from a data source in the following cases:

  • When a data source item (row) is being moved to a new position.
  • When a column (field) is added, modified or deleted in the data source.
 using System.ComponentModel;
 using DevExpress.XtraScheduler;
 // ...

 // Subscribe to the event which controls data reloading 
 // for the data source which contains appointments.
 schedulerControl.DataStorage.AppointmentCollectionAutoReloading += 
    new CancelListChangedEventHandler(OnCollectionAutoReloading);

 // Subscribe to the event which controls data reloading 
 // for the data source which contains appointment resources.
 schedulerControl.DataStorage.ResourceCollectionAutoReloading += 
    new CancelListChangedEventHandler(OnCollectionAutoReloading);

 private void OnCollectionAutoReloading(object sender, 
    CancelListChangedEventArgs e) {
    // Prevent data reloading when the data source is modified in specific cases.
    if(e.ListChangedType == ListChangedType.ItemMoved || e.ListChangedType == 
        ListChangedType.PropertyDescriptorAdded || 
        e.ListChangedType == ListChangedType.PropertyDescriptorChanged || 
        e.ListChangedType == ListChangedType.PropertyDescriptorDeleted)
       e.Cancel = true;
