Use the CreateAppointment method to create an appointment of the specified type.

To add custom fields to the appointment manually use the PersistentObjectStorage<T>.CreateCustomFields method.

Subsequently use the AppointmentDataStorage.Add method to add a newly created appointment to the storage.

The following code illustrates how to add multiple appointments in code.

int count = 10;
Appointment[] AppArray = new Appointment[count];
AppointmentCollection AppCollection = new AppointmentCollection();
for (int i=1; i<=count; i++) {
    Appointment newApp = schedulerControl.DataStorage.CreateAppointment(AppointmentType.Normal);
    newApp.Start = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(count);
    newApp.End = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(count * 2);
AppCollection.CopyTo(AppArray, 0);
