Scheduler Controls for ASP.NET and WinForms - v2010 vol 1

ASP.NET Team Blog
07 April 2010

Check out the features that the ASPxScheduler and XtraScheduler suites will be getting for DXperience v2010 vol 1:

Automatic Time Cell Sizing in Scheduler Reports

Time cells can now automatically adjust size depending on content. You can control whether cells should be shrink so that no empty space is used and whether they can be automatically enlarged to fit all available appointments.

The following image demonstrates how a calendar changes when you activate Auto Time Cell Sizing.

Smart Synchronization in Scheduler Reports

If several Scheduler Report controls are placed onto the same report, the Scheduler Adapter can coordinate how controls traverse through data. For instance, you can place a Day and Week View onto the same report and keep them synchronized on every report page.

This feature is indispensible for Tri-Fold Scheduling Reports shown in the following image. Notice that though the date changes on the next page, the Week and Month Views remain the same.

Thanks the auto time cell sizing, looks like it will alllow me to produce better looking room usage charts. Currently I had to leave lots of extra space so potential clashes didn't disappear into the More Items area.

re: Automatic Time Cell Sizing.  Is this also available within the ASPxScheduler control itself e.g. Weekly or Monthly views?

@James,

No, it is not available for controls (ASPxScheduler & XtraScheduler), only for scheduler reporting.
