How to: Customize the Appointment Dialog using View Model API (simple customization)


The information provided below is relevant only for DevExpress ASP.NET MVC Scheduler version 17.2 and later.

The View Model API enables you to customize dialog element characteristics (values, availability, and layout) as needed.

This topic covers several common scenarios on how to customize the Appointment Dialog's content and layout using the View Model API. In most cases, the ViewModel.PrepareControlFor and ViewModel.PrepareControl methods are used to access the Appointment Dialog editors.

Online Example

A complete sample project demonstrating this approach in action is available in the DevExpress Code Examples database at http://www.devexpress.com/example=T582018

The following code snippets illustrate how to customize editors on the dialog form:

  • Replacing all Toggle editors with Check Boxes

  • Changing the “Start” and “End” editors' DateTime format

  • Changing the “Resource” editor caption

  • Changing the “Subject” editor caption's forecolor and font settings

  • Changing the “Description” editor's forecolor and font settings.

  • Hiding the “Location” and “All-Day” editors
