SchedulerControl.GroupType Property

Gets or sets a value that specifies the type of grouping applied to the View.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraScheduler

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraScheduler.v24.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Win.Scheduler


public SchedulerGroupType GroupType { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

A SchedulerGroupType enumeration value that specifies how appointments are grouped within the scheduler control.

Available values:

Name Description

No grouping is applied.


Grouping by dates. Appointments are grouped by dates.


Grouping by resources. Appointments are grouped by resources.


If the appointments which are managed by the scheduler control belong to more than one resource, then the GroupType property can be used to group the appointments within the scheduling area. The available types of grouping are specified by the SchedulerGroupType enumeration and include grouping by dates, grouping by resources and the absence of grouping. Grouping appointments by dates or resources facilitates the task of managing user time within the scheduling area.

Note that grouping can also be applied at the level of each particular View via its SchedulerViewBase.GroupType property. When setting the scheduler’s GroupType property, its value is assigned to each View’s SchedulerViewBase.GroupType property so that the same grouping will be applied within the scheduling area regardless of the type of the scheduler’s active View (SchedulerControl.ActiveView). But the manner in which each particular View is grouped can be changed via the View’s SchedulerViewBase.GroupType property that overrides the scheduler’s GroupType property.


The GroupType property does not affect the Agenda View.


The following example demonstrates how to group a scheduler’s data. To group data in a scheduler by dates or resources you should simply set the SchedulerControl.GroupType property to an appropriate value of the SchedulerGroupType type. The code below shows how this can be done.

using DevExpress.XtraScheduler;
// ...

    // Disable data grouping.
    schedulerControl1.GroupType = SchedulerGroupType.None;

    // Group data by dates.
    schedulerControl1.GroupType = SchedulerGroupType.Date;

    // Group data by resources.
    schedulerControl1.GroupType = SchedulerGroupType.Resource;
