How to Create a Roster Scheduler View in Less Than 20 Minutes in WPF

“A man who does not think and plan long ahead will find trouble at his door.”
― Confucius, Chinese philosopher

To plan for a project perfectly, we should know the availability of the employees needed to implement it. The Syncfusion Scheduler control provides all the functionalities we need, helping us develop a WPF application to create a roster scheduler view.

In this blog, we are going to learn how to quickly create a roster scheduler view using the WPF Scheduler control. It will allow you to track the availability of employees in any given time period. The following screenshot shows the output of the application we are going to develop.

Creating a roster scheduler

Follow these steps to create a roster scheduler view in your WPF application:

Step 1: Follow the getting started documentation to create a WPF application and add the SfScheduler control to it.

Step 2: Make the following property changes in the add instance of SfScheduler:

  • Set the Scheduler ViewType property as TimelineMonth.
  • Add the resource data and bind it to the Scheduler using the ResourceCollection property.
  • Enable the resource view by setting the ResourceGroupType property as Resource.

Refer to the following code example.

    ItemsSource="{Binding Events}"
    ResourceCollection="{Binding Employees}">

Step 3: Customize the appearance of the appointments by using AppointmentTemplate, as explained in the following code example.

                     <Label Foreground="Black" FontWeight="Bold" Content="{Binding Subject}" Grid.Row="0" HorizontalContentAlignment="Center" VerticalContentAlignment="Top"/>
                     <Border Background="{Binding AppointmentBackground}" CornerRadius="5" Height="10" Width="10" HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Center" />

Step 4: Make the following property changes in TimelineViewSettings:

  • Using the ViewHeaderDateFormat property, customize the view header date format as required.
  • The default visible resource count is 3, but you can customize it by using the VisibleResourceCount property.

Refer to the following code example.

scheduler.TimelineViewSettings.ViewHeaderDateFormat = "dd";
scheduler.TimelineViewSettings.VisibleResourceCount = 5;
