Determining Header Cell and its Resource ID in MouseDown Events in RadScheduler

There could be a scenario where you want to get the header cell and its resource ID in the RadScheduler control when the user clicks on it. To achieve this, we can use the MouseDown event of the control. In the event handler, we can use the GetElementAtPoint() method of the ElementTree which will return the click element in the RadScheduler control. We can use this method to obtain other visual elements by a given location.

From the View object of the cell, we can call the GetResource() method to get the corresponding resource and its ID.


private void RadScheduler1_MouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
    SchedulerHeaderCellElement schedulerHeaderCellElement = this.radScheduler1.ElementTree.GetElementAtPoint(e.Location) as SchedulerHeaderCellElement;
    if (schedulerHeaderCellElement != null)
        if (e.Button == MouseButtons.Left)
            var date = schedulerHeaderCellElement.Date;
            var resource = schedulerHeaderCellElement.View.GetResource();
            var resourceID = schedulerHeaderCellElement.View.GetResourceId();
        else if (e.Button == MouseButtons.Right)
            // Right-click logic can be added here
