How to: Create an XtraSchedulerReport at Runtime

  • 2 minutes to read

You can construct the XtraScheduler report at runtime, and then load it into the Report Designer for editing. The following code illustrates how this task can be accomplished.

The following code snippet illustrates how you can add controls at runtime to create a daily report.

To create a report, a minimal set of controls, which includes the DayViewTimeCells, HorizontalDateHeaders, DayViewTimeRuler and a corresponding ReportDayView component, is used. They are added to the report's DetailBand, positioned and linked as required. Then, an end-user designer is invoked to display and edit the resulting report.

            XtraSchedulerReport xr = new XtraSchedulerReport();            
            // Add a Day View to the Report.
            ReportDayView repDayView = new ReportDayView();
            xr.Views.Add(repDayView);
            // Start modifications.
            repDayView.BeginInit();
            // Specify the scheduler data source.
            xr.SchedulerAdapter = new SchedulerStoragePrintAdapter(storage);
            // Create the controls
            DayViewTimeCells dayCells = new DayViewTimeCells();
            DayViewTimeRuler repTimeRuler = new DayViewTimeRuler();
            HorizontalDateHeaders repDateHeaders = new HorizontalDateHeaders();
            // Find the report's Detail band and add controls.
            xr.Bands.Add(new DetailBand());
            Band band = xr.Bands.GetBandByType(typeof(DetailBand));
            band.Controls.Add(repDateHeaders);
            band.Controls.Add(dayCells);
            band.Controls.Add(repTimeRuler);
            // Place each day on a separate page.
            band.PageBreak = PageBreak.AfterBand;
            // Position the controls.
            repTimeRuler.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(0, 0);
            repDateHeaders.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(repTimeRuler.Width, 0);
            dayCells.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(repTimeRuler.Width, repDateHeaders.Height);
            // Specify the View. 
            dayCells.View = repDayView;
            repTimeRuler.View = repDayView;
            repDateHeaders.View = repDayView;
            // Link the controls.
            dayCells.HorizontalHeaders = repDateHeaders;
            repTimeRuler.TimeCells = dayCells;
            // Adjust the time ruler to fill the corner's gap.
            repTimeRuler.Corners.Top = repDateHeaders.Height;
            // Adjust the report height.
            dayCells.HeightF = 800F;
            repTimeRuler.HeightF = dayCells.HeightF + repTimeRuler.Corners.Top;
            // Set the half-hour time scale.
            dayCells.TimeScale = new TimeSpan(0, 30, 0);
           // Specify the time interval for the report.
            xr.SchedulerAdapter.TimeInterval = new TimeInterval(new DateTime(2010, 07, 14), new DateTime(2010, 07, 21));
            // Finalize the modifications.
            repDayView.EndInit();

            // Invoke the Report Designer and load the report for editing.
            SchedulerReportDesignTool tool = new SchedulerReportDesignTool(xr);
            tool.ShowRibbonDesignerDialog();
