(F) Dynamic Event Loading for DayPilot Scheduler

DayPilot Scheduler supports dynamic event loading from the server (during scrolling).

(F) Dynamic Scheduler is Obsolete

The Dynamic Scheduler control was introduced in DayPilot Pro 4.4 with three main advantages over the classic Scheduler:

  • Window content is loaded dynamically from the server (during scrolling)
  • Non-business hours and days can be hidden
  • Vertical scrollbar

All these features are now available in the Scheduler as well.

The Dynamic Scheduler was missing several important features of the Scheduler (concurrent event stacking, resource tree, multiple columns in resource header, etc.). The Dynamic Scheduler will no longer be improved and the control will be removed in one of the future releases.

(F) Transparent Event Move/Resize Indicator for DayPilot Month

Old style (Shadow="Outline")

New style (Shadow="Fill")

This release introduces a new event move/resize indicator ("shadow") for DayPilot Month, compatible with the indicators available for the Calendar and Scheduler controls.

Status: Implemented

(F) Scheduler: Full Width PNG Export (Printing)

The full width of the image exported from the DayPilot Scheduler is now calculated automatically if you use Width="100%".

(F) Scheduler: Week Numbers for CellDuration="10800"

Column headers now show week numbers instead of the first day date number when showing one week per cell (CellDuration="10800") in DayPilot Scheduler.

See also:

(F) Custom Event Sorting (Calendar and Month)

It is now possible to use custom event sorting in DayPilot Month in Row Stacking Mode:

And in the DayPilot Calendar:

The sorting order can be specified using EventSortExpression property.

(F) Static Bubble for DayPilot Scheduler

It's possible to specify the Bubble HTML content statically in BeforeEventRender event (and prevent dynamic AJAX call on popup).

    protected void DayPilotScheduler1_BeforeEventRender(object sender, BeforeEventRenderEventArgs e)
        if (e.Value == "3")
            e.StaticBubbleHTML = "Static ToolTip";
