This section describes the mapping concept, and explains how to create the mappings required to bind the Scheduler to a data source.

When you bind the Scheduler to a data source, you will need to map properties of the Appointment, Resource and, if the Gantt View will be enabled, the AppointmentDependency objects to data source fields. Data fields are mapped to define which data source fields are the correct sources of data for the properties of appointment and resource objects. In real-world applications, the names of the database fields are usually fixed, and you cannot change them. Mappings are used to adjust the Scheduler data model to the existing data model.
