Grouping Overview

Grouping is the process of distributing appointments to different groups based on the value of one or more of their properties. Each view mode of the schedule has a different collection of groupings referenced by its Groupings property. This allows you to group appointments differently depending on the currently active view mode. Note that the order of the grouping is important, too.

Nevron Schedule provides support for 2 types of groupings:

Date Range Groupings

Date range groupings group appointments based on their start and end time. The currently supported date range groupings are:

The only schedule view mode, which does not have a date range grouping added by default is the timeline view mode.

Schedule Group Groupings 

Schedule group groupings are implemented by the NGroupGrouping class and group appointments based on the schedule group and item they are associated with.

The following code example shows how to create and add a schedule group named "Activity" with items "Work", "Rest" and "Travel":

Creating schedule group using string literals
Copy Code
schedule.Groups.Add(new NScheduleGroup("Activity", new string[] { "Work", "Rest", "Travel" }));

It is considered good practice to define groups using constants instead of string literals. Thus you will be able to easily assign groups and items to appointments later without the risk of typos. Here's an example:

Creating schedule group using constants
Copy Code
public const string ActivityGroup = "Activity";
public const string Work = "Work";
public const string Rest = "Rest";
public const string Travel = "Travel";
...
public void CreateGroups()
{
    // Add a schedule group
    schedule.Groups.Add(new NScheduleGroup(ActivityGroup, new string[] { Work, Rest, Travel }));
}

Finally, you should create schedule group groupings, which utilize the created schedule group and add them to the schedule view modes you want. The following example creates and adds a grouping to the day view mode and the week view mode of a schedule.

Create and add groupings
Copy Code
schedule.DayViewMode.Groupings.Add(new NGroupGrouping(ActivityGroup));
schedule.WeekViewMode.Groupings.Add(new NGroupGrouping(ActivityGroup));
