DayPilot Scheduler now supports recurrent events.

It uses the model already implemented in the Calendar:

  • Recurrence information is stored is a special VARCHAR database field or it can be mapped manually.
  • Supports daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly recurrence.
  • Sample modal editing dialog included.

(F) Recurrence Support for Month

DayPilot Month now supports recurrent events.

It uses the model already implemented in the Calendar:

  • Recurrence information is stored is a special VARCHAR database field or it can be mapped manually.
  • Supports daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly recurrence.
  • Sample modal editing dialog included.

(F) Horizontal AutoScroll (Scheduler)

The Scheduler supports autoscrolling. If you move a mouse close to the right or left border of the visible range the scheduler starts scrolling further in that direction.

This helps with moving/resizing the events beyond the visible time range.

AutoScrolling is enabled by default. You can turn it off by setting AutoScroll="Disabled".

(F) 100% Height (Scheduler)

DayPilotScheduler.HeightSpec can be set to Parent100Pct. This will set the total Scheduler height to 100% of its parent element.

In order to fill the browser window with the Scheduler control, all parent elements (including <html> and <body>) must use style="height:100%".

    <style type="text/css">
    html, body {
        height:100%;
    }
    </style>

See also Demo/Scheduler/Parent100Pct.aspx for an example.

(F) 100% Height (Calendar)

    <style type="text/css">
