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

Public Property AppointmentToolTipContentTemplate As DataTemplate

Property Value

Type Description
DataTemplate

A DataTemplate object that defines the content of appointment tooltips.

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.

The templates supplied by the DXScheduler allow you to completely replace the look and feel of visual elements, while maintaining their existing behavior.

The binding source for the AppointmentToolTipContentTemplate template is represented by the DevExpress.Xpf.Scheduler.Drawing.VisualAppointmentViewInfo class.

To learn more, see Styles and Templates.

Examples

TIP

A complete sample project is available in the DevExpress Code Examples database at http://www.devexpress.com/example=E2999.

This example demonstrates how to use the AppointmentViewInfo.Subject, AppointmentViewInfo.Location, AppointmentViewInfo.Description, AppointmentViewInfo.CustomViewInfo, SchedulerViewBase.AppointmentToolTipContentTemplate properties and SchedulerControl.AppointmentViewInfoCustomizing event to define and apply a custom template for showing an appointment subject, location, description and resource images within appointment tooltips.
