When you bind the Scheduler to a data source, you need to map appointments, resources, labels and statuses properties to data source fields. 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.
The SchedulerControl uses Mapping instances to connect the object properties with the corresponding data fields. Use the Mapping.Converter property to register a value converter for a custom storage format. Review the Mapping Converters topic for more information.
