Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Scheduler

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Scheduler.v20.1.dll

Declaration

public string Type { get; set; }
Public Property Type As String

Property Value

Type Description
String

A String value that specifies the name of the bound data field.

Remarks

IMPORTANT

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.

Use the Type property to bind an appointment's Appointment.Type property to a data field. The data field is taken from the datasource specified by the DataSource property of the AppointmentStorage.

When you map the Appointment.Type property to the data field, use the field of the int type. The AppointmentType members are enumerated as follows:

  • Normal = 0,
  • Pattern = 1,
  • Occurrence = 2,
  • ChangedOccurrence = 3,
  • DeletedOccurrence = 4

Note that if a SchedulerControl is used in bound mode (that is its data is stored in a database), the Type property needs to be bound to the corresponding dataset field.

Examples

This example demonstrates how to specify standard mappings for appointment properties via the AppointmentStorage.Mappings property.

<dxsch:SchedulerStorage.AppointmentStorage>
    <dxsch:AppointmentStorage>
        <dxsch:AppointmentStorage.Mappings>
            <dxsch:AppointmentMapping 
                Start="StartTime" 
                End="EndTime" 
                AllDay="AllDay"
                Description="Description"
                Label="Label"
                Location="Location"
                Subject="Subject" 
                RecurrenceInfo="RecurrenceInfo"
                ReminderInfo="ReminderInfo"
                Status="Status"
                Type="EventType"/>
        </dxsch:AppointmentStorage.Mappings>
    </dxsch:AppointmentStorage>
</dxsch:SchedulerStorage.AppointmentStorage>
