How to: Customize the RangeControl Auto-Adjusting Settings

  • 4 minutes to read

This example demonstrates how to customize the auto-adjusting settings before they are applied to the RangeControl when an end-user switches the scheduler to the Work-Week or Month view.

  1. Set the SchedulerOptionsRangeControl.AutoAdjustMode option to true.
  2. Handle the SchedulerControl.RangeControlAutoAdjusting event. In this event handler, specify the RangeControl scales and range to be set when the Work-Week or Month view becomes active in the following way:

using System;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using DevExpress.XtraScheduler;
using DevExpress.XtraScheduler.Native;

namespace WindowsFormsApplication1 {
    public partial class Form1 : Form {
        public Form1() {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        private void schedulerControl1_RangeControlAutoAdjusting(object sender,
                                                                RangeControlAdjustEventArgs e) {
            schedulerControl.OptionsRangeControl.AutoFormatScaleCaptions = true;
            SchedulerViewType activeViewType = schedulerControl.ActiveViewType;

            if (activeViewType == SchedulerViewType.WorkWeek) {
                schedulerControl.OptionsRangeControl.AutoFormatScaleCaptions = false;
                e.Scales[4].DisplayFormat = "dddd";
                e.Scales[4].Width = 70;
            }

            if (activeViewType == SchedulerViewType.Month) {
                schedulerControl.OptionsRangeControl.AutoFormatScaleCaptions = false;

                e.Scales.Clear();

                TimeScaleMonth monthScale = new TimeScaleMonth();
                monthScale.DisplayFormat = "MMMM yyyy";
                e.Scales.Add(monthScale);

                TwoWeekTimeScale twoWeekTimeScale = new TwoWeekTimeScale();
                twoWeekTimeScale.Width = 120;
                e.Scales.Add(twoWeekTimeScale);

                e.RangeMinimum = new DateTime(e.RangeMinimum.Year, 1, 1);
                e.RangeMaximum = e.RangeMinimum.AddYears(1);
            }
        }
    }

    public class TwoWeekTimeScale : TimeScaleFixedInterval {
        public TwoWeekTimeScale()
            : base(TimeSpan.FromDays(14)) {
        }
        public override DateTime Floor(DateTime date) {
            DateTime startOfWeeek = DateTimeHelper.GetStartOfWeekUI(date,
                                                                    DateTimeHelper.FirstDayOfWeek);
            if (DateTimeHelper.GetWeekOfYear(date) % 2 == 0)
                return startOfWeeek.AddDays(-7);

            return startOfWeeek;
        }
        public override string FormatCaption(DateTime start, DateTime end) {
            string dateString = "Week {0} - Week {1}";
            return String.Format(dateString, DateTimeHelper.GetWeekOfYear(start),
                                 DateTimeHelper.GetWeekOfYear(end.AddTicks(-1)));
        }
    }
}
