Event Data

The CustomDrawTimeIndicator event's data class is CustomDrawObjectEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:

Property Description
Bounds Returns the bounding rectangle of the drawing area.
Cache Gets an object which specifies the storage for the pens, fonts and brushes. Use it for custom painting in Scheduler Reports.
Graphics Gets an object used for painting.
Handled Gets or sets whether an event was handled. If it was handled, the default actions are not required.
ObjectInfo Gets information on the painted element.

The event data class exposes the following methods:

Method Description
DrawDefault() Renders the element using the default drawing mechanism.


The CustomDrawTimeIndicator event occurs before a Time Indicator is painted. The event parameter’s CustomDrawObjectEventArgs.ObjectInfo property provides information sufficient to paint a time indicator in desired manner.

You can call the CustomDrawObjectEventArgs.DrawDefault method to perform default painting before applying custom draw.

Set the CustomDrawObjectEventArgs.Handled property to true to prohibit default painting.


The SchedulerControl.CustomDrawTimeIndicator event is handled to display a string indicating the current time.


public static void scheduler_CustomDrawTimeIndicator(object sender, DevExpress.XtraScheduler.CustomDrawObjectEventArgs e) {
    TimeIndicatorViewInfo info = e.ObjectInfo as TimeIndicatorViewInfo;
    SchedulerControl scheduler = sender as SchedulerControl;
    foreach (var item in info.Items) {
        TimeIndicatorBaseItem timeIndicatorItem = item as TimeIndicatorBaseItem;
        if (timeIndicatorItem != null) {
            Rectangle boundsText = Rectangle.Empty;
            if (scheduler.ActiveView is DayView) {
                boundsText = Rectangle.Inflate(timeIndicatorItem.Bounds, 0, 5);
                boundsText.Offset(((int)e.Graphics.ClipBounds.Width / 2), -10);
            e.Cache.DrawString(info.Interval.Start.ToString(), scheduler.Appearance.HeaderCaption.Font, new SolidBrush(Color.Red), boundsText, 
    e.Handled = true;
