ASP.NET Scheduler Features: Performance Improvements, Print, Export, And Share Multiple Resources

ASP.NET Team Blog
14 July 2009

Our ASP.NET scheduler has got some major features and enhancements for the DXperience 2009 volume 2 release. Check out how the new features will improve your websites:

Print and Export With Reports Integration

The feature most requested by current ASPxScheduler users is support for printing and exporting. We took this request to the next level by integrating the ASPxScheduler with a full reporting product. For more info, check out the ASP.NET Calendar Scheduling…New DevExpress Reporting Integration post.

Resource Sharing With Built-in UI Support

The appointment editor form now features a multi-select control so your end-users can specify associated resources. And this slick new UI uses the ASPxListBox control’s new multi-selection feature. Check out the preview screenshot below:

Performance Improvement of Appointment Form

The Appointment Editor dialogs of the ASPxScheduler can now be displayed on the client side. This gives your website better performance because the callback is still initiated in the background, but it’s used to fetch or submit only appointment data.

Therefore, the HTML code required to render the appointment form is already on the client and thus not transmitted, which makes these callbacks much faster. The whole operation now looks as if it was completely done on the client side. And the end-user sees the dialog popup within seconds!

IE Memory Footprint

Memory performance with Internet Explorer has been improved. Our ASP.NET team has tweaked how the ASPxScheduler manages client-side JavaScript objects within IE’s DOM and thus reducing the amount of memory consumed by the ASPxScheduler’s client-side operations.
