Enable resource and create appointment in Silverlight Schedule.

3 mins read

In SfSchedule control, you can enable Resource and create appointments under it easily. Here Resource is used to add additional information about the appointments.

For enabling Resource in SfSchedule:

Create a Silverlight application and add SfSchedule control to it. Now, add resource type in ScheduleResourceTypeCollection as follows.

XAML

<syncfusion:SfSchedule.ScheduleResourceTypeCollection >
<syncfusion:ResourceType TypeName="Doctors">
<syncfusion:Resource
DisplayName="Dr. Jacob" ResourceName="Jacob"/>
<syncfusion:Resource
DisplayName="Dr. Darsy" ResourceName="Darsy"/>
</syncfusion:ResourceType>
</syncfusion:SfSchedule.ScheduleResourceTypeCollection>

 

Note: In the above code example, only one ResourceType under ScheduleResourceTypeCollection property is added. It is possible to add more than one resource types. But only one resource type can be viewed in SfSchedule by specifying the corresponding ResourceType name to Resource property of SfSchedule, as follows.

XAML

<syncfusion:SfSchedule ScheduleType="WorkWeek"
Name="schedule"    Resource="Doctors" >
</syncfusion:SfSchedule>

Now add the appointments in Schedule under the specific resource by using ResourceCollection property of it, as follows.

 C#

DateTime currentdate = DateTime.Now.Date;
ScheduleAppointment app = new ScheduleAppointment()
{
StartTime = currentdate,
EndTime = currentdate.AddHours(2),
Subject = "Meeting",
Location = "Chennai",
AppointmentBackground = new
SolidColorBrush(Colors.Red)
};
app.ResourceCollection.Add(new Resource() { ResourceName
=
"Jacob", TypeName = "Doctors" });
ScheduleAppointment app1 = new ScheduleAppointment()
{
StartTime = currentdate,
EndTime = currentdate.AddHours(3),
Subject = "conference",
Location = "Chennai",
AppointmentBackground = new
SolidColorBrush(Colors.Yellow)
};
app1.ResourceCollection.Add(new Resource() { ResourceName
=
"Darsy", TypeName = "Doctors" });
this.schedule.Appointments.Add(app);
this.schedule.Appointments.Add(app1);

In the above code, the Resource information of the appointment using ResourceCollection is specified, by adding the Resource information such as ResourceName and the TypeName, the ResourceType name, where it exists.
