Event Data

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

Property Description
Cancel Gets or sets a value indicating whether the event should be canceled. Inherited from CancelEventArgs.
FilterColumn Gets or sets a field to which a filter criteria is applied.


You can use the FilterControl to display only appointments that meet the specified conditions. To enable the control to filter appointments contained within the SchedulerDataStorage, the FilterControl.SourceControl property should be set to the SchedulerDataStorage.Appointments collection.

When the FilterControl begins creating a collection of columns which will be used to construct a logical expression (available via the FilterControl.FilterString property), the PrepareAppointmentFilterColumn event is raised for each added column. Handling this event enables you to substitute the column’s name with a custom text, or prepare a custom editor for specific value types. The column being added is available via the FilterColumn property of the event handler’s parameter.

The following code snippet illustrates the use of PrepareAppointmentFilterColumn event:

private void schedulerDataStorage1_PrepareAppointmentFilterColumn(object sender, 
    DevExpress.XtraScheduler.PrepareFilterColumnEventArgs e) 
    string fieldName = e.FilterColumn.FieldName;
    // Exclude the "AllDay" column.
    if(fieldName == "AllDay")
        e.Cancel = true;
    // Modify the caption for a column and provide a calculator control to edit values.
    if(fieldName == "CustomFieldMember") {
        e.FilterColumn.SetColumnCaption("Modified CustomFieldCaption");
