Currently working on a scheduler application. The main focus of the application is to enter demand (by day and week) and then be able to match supply to that demand. The users that would be using the demand entry portion of the app would like to see it in an outlook type environment where they essentially enter their demand like an appointment in outlook. These entries can be single or multi day appointments, all of which I create as all day events by setting the AllDayEvent property on the appointment object. . I've been working up a prototype for this using the WinSchedule control set which is coming along nicely but have hit a major snag. It appears that the scheduler controls limit the number of appointments they can display to 15. Is this correct? If so, is there a way around this that I am missing? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
It sounds like you are referring to the UltraDayView control, which does in fact impose a limit on the number of AllDayEvents (I thought it was sixteen). You might want to condier using one of the other WinSchedule controls, since it sounds like you are only using AllDayEvents and thus will not miss the absence of the time slot area.
I'm actually already using the MonthSingle, Day and Week controls in a tab based approach with a MonthMulti as the navigation tool. The problem is that the main view they want to see is the DayView control with each day of the current week. Doing this and using all day events in essence creates them like a weekly bar chart of orders and shows them what day or days each order spreads across.
I understand now that the DayView control limits to 16 entries (why I don't really understand) but it does. So now I'm looking for a workaround. I know the appointments are actually created just not displayed. Is there a way to make the scrollbar on the side of the DayView actually scroll through all the appointments for that day? I know that I would still be limited to only 16 displayed at once, but this would at least give me an option.
