Scheduler - New Event Placement Strategy

Asked by Anonymous
11 months ago.


I have a use case, where I have to specify the line that the event should be displayed at, depending on its type. E. g. all events of type A should be placed at line 0, all events of type B at line 1 etc.

If there are many events of the same type inside the same resource, the default sorting rule (start asc, end desc) applies.

Right now I have to do this placement myself, which is not that trivial and it gets complicated, because I have to take in account all events opertions: adding, deleting, showing, hiding, moving, resizing and copy&paste

Otherwise it would be helpful, if you could provide me with a workaround.

Thank you!

You might want to take a look at the "split resources" feature:

It lets you split a resource into multiple subresources, each having a special row in the Scheduler grid. You can use the split resources to replace the fixed line numbers. Concurrent events will be placed automatically using the default sort order.

Normally, each subresource would have its own title in the row header section but it can be hidden ("split: false").

Can I let the subresources without any events be hidden automatically? And can I show them, once I add an event to a hidden subresource?

Yes, please take a look at this tutorial:

The Scheduler can hide rows that meet certain criteria. This example hides rows that have no events. You can combine it with other rules if needed.
