SchedulerControl.InitNewAppointment Event

Occurs before a new appointment is created in the Scheduler.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraScheduler

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraScheduler.v22.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Win.Scheduler


public event AppointmentEventHandler InitNewAppointment

Event Data

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

Property Description
Appointment Gets the appointment for which the event was raised.


Use this event to change the default values of the Appointment properties every time the appoointment is created in the SchedulerControl control by an end-user (for instance, when an end-user clicks the New Appointment item of the context menu, or uses the in-place editor).


This example demonstrates how to use the SchedulerControl.InitNewAppointment event, which occurs in all cases before a new appointment is created. This event can be used to initialize a newly created appointment with values other than the default.

View Example

private void schedulerControl1_InitNewAppointment(object sender, DevExpress.XtraScheduler.AppointmentEventArgs e)
    e.Appointment.Description += "Created at runtime at " + String.Format("{0:g}", DateTime.Now);
    e.Appointment.CustomFields["Amount"] = 00.01d;
    e.Appointment.CustomFields["ContactInfo"] = "";
