Simple Requirement for a Resource View

Asked by steve65

Hi Dan,
Ive been developing with your control for a while now but Ive come across a simple requirement that I dont seem to be able to do. Can you help?

I need to create a Resource view :-
1- Resources down left hand side
2- Show only 1 Day
3- Hide non business hours
4- Show Bubble on event mouse over

I cant seem to achive this combination using either the calendar, scheduler or scheduler dynamic

- Calendar in Resource view only shows resources across the top (no good when a lot of resources)
- Scheduler in Resource mode cant hide non business hours (wastes a lot of screen space when Im only scheduling events during daytime and therefore limits the amount of data that can be displayed in each event)
- Dynamic Scheduler seems to be too early in its development ( No bubble event, doesnt display after ajax postback, no 'useeventboxes' option, only has fixed width)

Any help would be appreciated.

btw printing is definitely also a big issue, I know its been mentioned before and as a developer I'm on your side 'why print?' but people need it.
Basic printing sort of works and I can get away with it but Ive noticed that if you try to print a calendar that goes onto multiple pages then no events display on any page except the last page (IE6/7 and Firefox)

You are right that it's not possible at the moment. I plan to add the missing features to DayPilotSchedulerDynamic so that's the way to go (you just need to wait a little bit).

There is a raising number of request for a 100% printable output. That's hard to do in the DHTML code with all the position:absolute elements and scrollbars etc. I plan to introduce PNG output for printing and export.

Thanks Dan,
Appreciate it.
Get the dynamicscheduler up to the functionality of the scheduler, and find a way around printing and you'll turn a first class product into an outstanding one.
I've got 2 new developers starting in a couple of months so achieve this and I'll be upgrading to a site license.
