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.

In the DXScheduler suite for WPF, the main elements in any end-user timetable are appointments (also referred to as events, all-day events, user events), which represent the scheduled time interval and an end-user’s plans for this time interval. A plan could contain the appointment’s subject, location, different marks (status and labels), comments and any other custom properties. The topics in this section describe the main concepts of creating and using appointments within a scheduling application built using the DXScheduler.

The following topics are available in this section:

  • What Is an Appointment

    This topic describes the Appointment concept, introduces the main features of appointments and describes the Appointment interface used to represent appointments of different types in a scheduling application.

  • Appointment Labels and Statuses

    This topic describes how appointments can be marked by end-users. There are two standard Microsoft Outlook-like marks for appointments - label and status - which affect the visual representation of an appointment (they allow its background and border colors to be changed). Also note that you can either customize the existing labels and statuses, or add custom ones.

  • Recurring Appointments and Exceptions

    This topic describes how to create a series of recurring appointments. Each appointment can be either recurring or non-recurring. A set of recurring appointments is specified by the recurrence pattern, which can be either daily, weekly, monthly or yearly. And any appointments of the recurrent series which have been changed or deleted are called exceptions.

  • Reminders for Appointments

    This topic describes how to set reminders for appointments. Appointment reminders are both visual and non-visual notifications to end-users of any appointment. They occur before the specified start time of the appointment.
