    {
      id: 1,
      start: new Date("2013/6/6 08:00 AM"),
      end: new Date("2013/6/6 09:00 AM"),
      title: "Interview",
      roomId: 1 // the event is held in "Small meeting room" whose value is 1

    }
  ],
  resources: [
    {
      field: "roomId",
      dataColorField: "key",
      dataSource: [
        { text: "Small meeting room", value: 1, key: "#aabbcc" },
        { text: "Big meeting room", value: 2, key: "green" }
      ]
    }
  ]
});
</script>

resources.dataSource Object|Array|kendo.data.DataSource

The data source which contains resource data items. Can be a JavaScript object which represents a valid data source configuration, a JavaScript array or an existing kendo.data.DataSource instance.

If the dataSource option is set to a JavaScript object or array the widget will initialize a new kendo.data.DataSource instance using that value as data source configuration.

If the dataSource option is an existing kendo.data.DataSource instance the widget will use that instance and will not initialize a new one.

Example - set the resource data source

<div id="scheduler"></div>
<script>
$("#scheduler").kendoScheduler({
  date: new Date("2013/6/6"),
  dataSource: [
    {
      id: 1,

      start: new Date("2013/6/6 08:00 AM"),
      end: new Date("2013/6/6 09:00 AM"),
      title: "Interview",
      room: { value: 1 } // the resource field is an object instead of a primitive value
    },
    {
      id: 2,
      start: new Date("2013/6/6 08:00 AM"),
      end: new Date("2013/6/6 09:00 AM"),
      title: "Meeting",
      room: { value: 2 } // the resource field is an object instead of a primitive value
    }
  ],
  resources: [
    {
      field: "room",
      valuePrimitive: false,
      dataSource: [
        { text: "Small meeting room", value: 1 },
        { text: "Big meeting room", value: 2 }
      ]
    }
