How to create a CustomGrouping in the SfSchedule?

CustomGrouping is used to group the schedule appointments based on the resources you select. By using the CustomGrouping, you can add the same appointment for multiple resources simultaneously. This article explains about how to group the appointments based on the resources.

Creating CustomGrouping

  1. Create a WPF application and add the SfSchedule control to it. Add Resources in the ScheduleResourceTypeCollection and create buttons to change the resource type dynamically by using the button click event as in the following code example.

XAML

In the above code, two types of resources are used.

TV

  • StarSports
  • ESPN
  • TenSports

Programs

  • FootBall
  • Cricket
  • News

Note: In the above code example, the value of the DayHeaderOrder property is OrderByDate that is used to display multiple resources in each day. You can also set the OrderByResouce value for the same property where each Resource displays the schedule appointments in all the week days.

  1. Create appointment collections and group the appointments by using the GetFilterCollection method as in the following code example.

C#

NOTE: In the above code example, in GetFilterCollection method both the resources, TV and Program are added in a same appointment by using the ResourceCollection property. When the resource of the schedule is changed to any other type, the same appointment is used to display.

  1.  When the resource type is Programs, then the appointments are filtered based on the resource name as in the above code example.

Note: For an example, when the resource name is FootBall, then the appointments are related to football.

  1. The default resource type is Television where each resource has the appointments of all the three programs such as football, cricket and news. When you change the resource type as Programs, then appointments are filtered and each resource has the appointments related to the same resource name.

The following screenshots display the schedule appointments based on the resource type.
