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, an inplace editor (of the text type) can be used by end-users to either create a new appointment (an inplace editor is activated after an end-user selects a time slot and starts typing in it) or edit an existing appointment’s subject (an inplace editor is activated by either a single click on the selected appointment or pressing the F2 key when it’s selected). Use the AllowInplaceEditor property to control the availability of such functionality to end-users with respect to an appointment’s type.


If the AllowInplaceEditor property is set to UsedAppointmentType.Custom, then whether an inplace editor can be activated for an appointment or not is decided in the SchedulerControl.AllowInplaceEditor event handler.
