Looks great!  However, we are focusing on Silverlight so hopefully w/ the WPF version the Silverlight version will come soon!

Finally, one of my most desired features of the WPF lib. Looks great. Are you going to release a beta version?

Good to see the suite coming together,

the only thing I will say is the Resource Titles are barely legible

WPF DX components are becoming more and more worth a try.

I hope a Tree/Gantt combination control is in the pipe.

Will I be able to plan an Appointment for more than one 'resource' and have it drawn as one square in the calender (WPF Day View - DX WPF Scheduler Control) ? or will it draw a seperate appointment in each resource ? or maybe I can override that behaviour ?

Great Job!!.

What about WPF integrated in XAF?

@Jurjen de Groot

An appointment may have several appointmentViewInfo representations (visual appointment representations).

You can customize what an appointment looks like, but you cannot modify the layout, i.e. how appointments are placed within resource columns.

As for appointments with shared resources, they have their visual representation for each associated resource, but any operations like edit, resize, drag-and-drop are performed for all appointmentViewInfo simultaneously.

What about a Silverlight version?

@Alberto:

Thanks for your interest. I am afraid we have no plans for doing WPF/SL in XAF this year. But it will definitely be in our TODO list for the next year. However, I can say that we already did corresponding research in our labs and even created a complete XAF WPF application. Currently, it's not publicly available but it shown as a demo at PDC last year (community.devexpress.com/.../are-you-ready-for-the-2010-xaf-roller-coaster.aspx).

@All: Thanks, guys!

@Neil D, George Benecos: Silverlight version is in our plans, but not for v2010 vol 2. You can track its progress at www.devexpress.com/issue=S31564.

@Michael Proctor: Thank you for your feedback, we'll make them more readable.

@Mohsen Benkhellat: We hope to add this control in the future.

Alexander: Right now the control is in an early preview. We can't say at the moment whether we will putting it out as a beta well prior to the release, or beta it just prior to the release (as we do normally with our DXperience customers), or release it as a beta with the full release. The decision should be made in a few weeks, depending upon whether we are satisfied or not with the performance and stability. It is after all a complex control. Please, stay tuned and track our blogs.

(Thanks to Alan who fed me the info.)

Cheers, Julian

Hoping that we can adjust timescales in Timeline view (i.e. show 1 hour increments instead of 1 day). Is this possible?

Looks nice. Like Ara, I'm also very interested in the "timeline" view. If I understand the comment from Julian correctly, DevExpress will not have a final version of this control ready in the vol 2 release - is that correct?
