Asked by Gaona Jandri

I am using the vue.js component and would like to use a custom resource field called 'role' as the default name when creating the event.
how can I do?

You'll need to transform your data set to match the data structure required by the Scheduler. It displays the name specified by the "name" property:


const yourResources = [ /* ... */ ];
const resources = => {
  return {
    name: r.role

When you display custom row header columns ( you can specify a which property of the data source item will be used as content:

config: {
  // ...
  rowHeaderColumns: [
    { name: "Role", display: "role"}

Thanks for the help but that's not what I'm looking for.
I need the custom field called 'role' to be used as the name of the event when it is created.
my resources are structured as follows:
id: 1,
name: "John",
role: "waiter"
}, .... ]
inside the 'args' argument of OnTimeRangeSelected the 'role' field is not present.
Is there any way to access that field?

Oh, sorry.

In onTimeRangeSelected, you can access the source data object this way:

onTimeRangeSelected: args => {
  const row = dp.rows.find(args.resource);   // dp -> DayPilot.Scheduler object
  const role =;
  // ...
