Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Scheduling.v19.1.dll

Declaration

public DateTime QueryStart { get; }
Public ReadOnly Property QueryStart As Date

Property Value

Type Description
DateTime

A DateTime value that is the start of the appointment.

Remarks

The AppointmentItem.QueryStart and AppointmentItem.QueryEnd properties allows you to calculate the correct interval for use in a SELECT query when handling the SchedulerControl.VisibleIntervalsChanged event to fetch appointments from the data source. The use of the AppointmentItem.Start and AppointmentItem.End properties is not recommended in this situation because you can miss the appointment pattern and lose appointment exceptions.

The QueryStart property return values are dependent on the appointment type, as shown in the following table.

Appointment Type QueryStart Value
AppointmentType.Normal The AppointmentItem.Start value.
AppointmentType.Pattern The Start value of the first appointment in the recurring series.
AppointmentType.ChangedOccurrence The Start value of an original occurrence before modification (as if an occurrence is restored from the exception).
AppointmentType.DeletedOccurrence The Start value of an original occurrence before modification (as if an occurrence is restored from the exception).
