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.

By default, end-users are allowed to create new appointments by using UI elements such as the scheduler's popup menu, a View's inplace editor or the Edit Appointment dialog. Use the AllowAppointmentCreate property to control the availability of such an action for end-users, with respect to an appointment's specific type.

NOTE

If the AllowAppointmentCreate property is set to UsedAppointmentType.Custom, then whether an end-user is allowed to create new appointments or not is decided in the SchedulerControl.AllowAppointmentCreate event handler.

Examples

This example demonstrates how to prevent end-users from having appointments within a certain time interval (from 2 PM to 3 PM). To implement end-user restrictions, handle the SchedulerControl.AllowAppointmentCreate event to prevent end-users from creating appointments within a certain time interval and the SchedulerControl.AllowAppointmentConflicts event to prevent an existing appointment from being dragged to the same time interval:
