MultiDay View

The RadCalendar comes with new MultiDay view mode (introduced in R3 2018 Release) which enables you to create a detailed view of the schedule for a specific day (or days). In addition, you will have full control over the way the MultiDay view is visualized through various configuration options such as day start and end times, timeline settings, current time indicator, and more.

The main purpose of the MultiDay view is to display appointments to the end-users in a convenient way. For more details on the Appointments feature of RadCalendar refer to Appointments topic.

Key Features

This section lists the key properties of the MultiDay ViewMode so you could configure it to best suit your needs.

  • VisibleDays: Defines the number of days visualized on the view area. The default is 7 days.
  • DayStartTime: Defines the time used to indicate the start of the timeline. The default value of the DayStartTime is 00:00:00 or 12:00 AM.
  • DayEndTime: Sets the time used to indicate the end of the timeline.
  • IsWeekendVisible: Boolean property that will allow to exclude the weekends from the timeline, so that only the work week is displayed.
  • TimelineInterval: This property is of type TimeSpan and defines the time intervals inside the timeline.
  • IsCurrentTimeIndicatorVisible: Boolean property that enables the option to visually mark the current time. In addition, you could customize the way the current time indicator looks through a few styling properties, for more details go to Styling section.

All of the above are applied using the MultiDayViewSettings property of RadCalendar. Here is a quick example on how they could be set:

<telerikInput:RadCalendar x:Name="calendar" NativeControlLoaded="CalendarLoaded">
    <telerikInput:RadCalendar.MultiDayViewSettings>
        <telerikInput:MultiDayViewSettings VisibleDays="10"
                                            DayStartTime="9:00:00"
                                            DayEndTime="18:00:00"
                                            TimelineInterval="2:00"
                                            IsWeekendVisible="false"
                                            IsCurrentTimeIndicatorVisible="true"/>
