Mapping Class

The property mapping that specifies source object's property that provides data to a scheduler item's property.

Namespace: DevExpress.XamarinForms.Scheduler

Assembly: DevExpress.XamarinForms.Scheduler.dll

Declaration

[TypeConverter(typeof(MappingConverter))]
public class Mapping :
    FreezableBase

Remarks

Note that you can specify this property's value using one of the following approaches:

  • By a source object's property name. The label mapping creates the property mapping without converters:

    <dxs:AppointmentLabelMappings Caption="Caption">
    
  • Via the markup extension. You can specify all mapping settings in this case:

    <dxs:AppointmentLabelMappings Caption="{dxs:Mapping FieldName=Caption, Converter={StaticResource labelCaptionConverter}">
    
  • Assigning a new Mapping object to the property.

    <dxs:AppointmentMappings.RecurrenceInfo>
        <dxs:Mapping 
            FieldName="Recurrence" 
            Converter="{StaticResource recurrenceConverter}"
            ConversionBehavior="InPlaceOfMapping"/>
    <dxs:AppointmentMappings.RecurrenceInfo>
    

Examples

This example demonstrates how to configure mappings that specify the properties of source objects and how they provide values for scheduler items' properties.

<ContentPage.Resources>
    <views:ModelRecurrenceToRecurrenceInfoConverter x:Key="recurrenceConverter"/>
    <views:MedicalAppointmentTypeToAppointmentTypeConverter x:Key="appointmentTypeConverter"/>
</ContentPage.Resources>
<!-- Some markup is skipped. -->
<dxs:DataSource AppointmentsSource="{Binding MedicalAppointments}">
    <dxs:DataSource.AppointmentMappings>
        <dxs:AppointmentMappings 
            Id="Id" 
            Subject="Subject"
            End="EndTime" 
            Start="StartTime" 
            LabelId="LabelId"
            Type="{dxs:Mapping FieldName=Type, Converter={StaticResource appointmentTypeConverter}, ConversionBehavior=InPlaceOfMapping}">
            <!-- The extension above configures the mapping like the following. -->
            <dxs:AppointmentMappings.RecurrenceInfo>
                <dxs:Mapping 
                    FieldName="Recurrence" 
                    Converter="{StaticResource recurrenceConverter}"
                    ConversionBehavior="InPlaceOfMapping"/>
            <dxs:AppointmentMappings.RecurrenceInfo>
    </dxs:DataSource.AppointmentMappings>
<dxs:DataSource
