using DevExpress.XtraScheduler.Drawing;
using System.Drawing.Drawing2D;
        private void schedulerControl1_CustomDrawAppointment(object sender, CustomDrawObjectEventArgs e) {
            TimeLineAppointmentViewInfo tlvi = e.ObjectInfo as TimeLineAppointmentViewInfo;
            // This code works only for the Timeline View.
            if(tlvi != null) {
                Rectangle r = e.Bounds;
                r.X += 3;
                r.Y += 3;
                string[] s = tlvi.Appointment.Subject.Split(' ');

                for(int i = 0; i < s.Length; i++) {
                    e.Cache.DrawString(s[i], tlvi.Appearance.Font, new SolidBrush(colorArray[i]),
 r, StringFormat.GenericDefault);
                    SizeF shift = e.Graphics.MeasureString(s[i] + " ", tlvi.Appearance.Font);
                    r.X += (int)shift.Width;

                e.Handled = true;
