Lesson 1 - Create an Application using the Template Gallery (legacy)

  • 2 minutes to read
NOTE

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 lesson demonstrates how to create a simple application with the Scheduler Control using the Template Gallery. The Template Gallery allows you to create applications from templates.

  1. Click FILE |New | Project... to invoke the New Project dialog. In the invoked New Project dialog, select the DevExpress v20.1 Template Gallery pattern, and click OK.
