Collection of Custom Objects

ASPxScheduler can be bound to a collection of custom objects. The following code demonstrates how to implement a custom appointment object.

Note

The collection of custom objects must implement the System.ComponentModel.IBindingList interface. An object exposing a simple System.Collections.IList interface can also be used as a data source, although you are advised against using List objects, since this approach may cause problems. For example, the IPersistentObject.GetRow method will return the System.Data.DataRowView instead of the original object.

Note

Do not implement a property in your custom object that returns a collection. You should implement a container class that has a property to get and set the collection and use this class in the corresponding custom object property instead.

A complete sample project is available in the DevExpress Code Examples database at http://www.devexpress.com/example=E436.

This code snippet implements the object data source used for binding to the ASPxScheduler. Note that while other properties of a custom object are mapped in the application to regular appointment properties, the Price and ContactInfo fields should be mapped to appointment's PersistentObject.CustomFields.
