Namespace: DevExpress.XtraScheduler.UI

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraScheduler.v20.1.dll

Declaration

[ComVisible(false)]
public class AppointmentLabelEdit :
    ImageComboBoxEdit
<ComVisible(False)>
Public Class AppointmentLabelEdit
    Inherits ImageComboBoxEdit

Remarks

The AppointmentLabelEdit represents a combo box editor with images displayed along with text captions. To link it to a SchedulerStorage, you should set its Storage property to that component. When dropped onto a form that contains a Scheduler control, it links itself to a scheduler storage automatically.

The combo box loads information about AppointmentLabel objects and displays the properties of each object as follows:

The control tracks the AppointmentLabelCollection changes. You may update the information manually by calling the AppointmentLabelEdit.RefreshData method.

The common appearance of the AppointmentLabelEdit is shown in the picture below.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to create a custom form to change the appointment's label, status and resource. It is intended to illustrate XtraScheduler controls used for editing a non-recurrent appointment. For information on how to substitute the standard form with a custom one, please refer to the Getting Started tutorial.

The example below declares a form constructor with parameters - a scheduler control and a current appointment. For this example to work correctly, the form should contain the following auxiliary controls:

You should also add the btnOk button, which is used to confirm the chosen settings and to close the form.

public partial class AppointmentForm : Form
    {
    SchedulerControl control;

    public AppointmentForm(SchedulerControl control, Appointment apt)

    // The appointment editing should be performed 
    // via the AppointmentFormController instance.
            this.controller = CreateController(control, apt);

            InitializeComponent();

            this.control = control;
            this.storage = control.Storage;
