This can be useful, for instance, when you have different views of the same type and want to differentiate between them in the Scheduler UI.

The following example demonstrates how to create a custom ribbon and menu item for the Month view:

<dx:ThemedWindow x:Class="WpfScheduler.MainWindow" 
    xmlns:dx="http://schemas.devexpress.com/winfx/2008/xaml/core" 
    xmlns:dxsch="http://schemas.devexpress.com/winfx/2008/xaml/scheduling"
    <!------------------->

    <dxsch:SchedulerControl x:Name="scheduler" CommandBarStyle="Ribbon" ActiveViewIndex="0">
        <dxsch:MonthView Caption="Month"
                         Description="The Multi-Week view useful for long-term plans."
                         Glyph="{dx:DXImage Image=MonthView_16x16.png}" 
                         LargeGlyph="{dx:DXImage Image=MonthView_32x32.png}"/>
    </dxsch:SchedulerControl>

The following image shows the result:
