Getting Started

Note

You are viewing documentation for the legacy WPF Scheduler control. If you're starting a new project, we strongly recommend that you use a new control declared in the DevExpress.Xpf.Scheduling namespace. If you decide to upgrade an existing project in order to switch to the updated scheduler control, see the Migration Guidelines document.

The Scheduler is a control for scheduling events (e.g., meetings, conferences, trips, lessons, etc.). In the Scheduler, events are called Appointments, which represent a time interval and the activity scheduled for this time interval. The activity is characterized by its subject, location, indicators (labels and statuses), and description. Any number of custom properties can also be defined for an appointment. These Appointments can be recurring, which means that the activity in them can be scheduled to repeat itself.

If you are a first-time user, you can refer to the following tutorials to get acquainted with the DXScheduler Suite for WPF. These examples demonstrate the control's basic functionality, and provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to create simple scheduling applications.
