Name Type Description
colorId SchedulerColorId

A SchedulerColorId enumeration member that specifies a legacy Scheduler label whose color is obtained.


Type Description

A Color that is the label color.


The GetDefaultColorByStringId method allows you to obtain default label colors from the legacy color scheme, i.e., a default scheme unrelated to the current Skins.


This example changes the label colors. For each label it attempts to get a label color defined in a specified skin. If it fails, a default legacy color is used.

IAppointmentLabelStorage labelStorage = scheduler.Storage.Appointments.Labels;
foreach (IAppointmentLabel label in labelStorage) {
    AppointmentLabel appLabel = label as AppointmentLabel;
    if (appLabel != null) {
        string skinElemName = AppointmentLabel.GetSkinElementName(appLabel.ColorId);
        Color skinColor = DevExpress.Skins.SkinManager.Default.Skins["Office 2016 Colorful"].GetSkin(DevExpress.Skins.SkinProductId.Scheduler).Colors.GetPrimaryColor(skinElemName, Color.Empty);
        if (skinColor == Color.Empty)
            skinColor = AppointmentLabel.GetDefaultColorByStringId(appLabel.ColorId);
