You are viewing documentation for the legacy WPF Scheduler control. If you're starting a new project, we strongly recommend that you use a new control declared in the DevExpress.Xpf.Scheduling namespace. If you decide to upgrade an existing project in order to switch to the updated scheduler control, see the Migration Guidelines document.
This section describes the mapping concept, and explains how to create the mappings required to bind the Scheduler to a data source.
When you bind the Scheduler to a data source, you will need to map properties of the Appointment and Resource objects to data source fields. Data fields are mapped to define which data source fields are the correct sources of data for the properties of appointment and resource objects. In real-world applications, the names of the database fields are usually fixed, and you cannot change them. Mappings are used to adjust the Scheduler data model to the existing data model.
