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 GetService method to enable your application objects to obtain a service of the SchedulerControl, in order to employ its methods. The Scheduler control implements IServiceProvider interface, so you can tell it what type of service you wish to retrieve via the GetService method; and if a service is available, it is offered to the caller object.

There is a set of predefined services you can retrieve. The IServiceProvider and IServiceContainer interface realization allows hiding implementation details, and gives more flexibility regarding future updates of the component.


This example demonstrates the typical scenario for using the SchedulerControl.GetService method.

IServiceType myService = (IServiceType) schedulerControl1.GetService(typeof (IServiceType))) ;
if (myService != null) {
    // Use methods of service.
