This demo illustrates the way of customizing the default editor window with custom template option and the customized design is automatically replaced onto the usual event editor. Here, a doctor's daily appointment with his patients is listed out and shaded with specific color based on its status.

by making use of the
EditorTemplate API. Here, the custom design is built with the required fields through the script template and its type should be

As we are using our Syncfusion sub-components within this editor in this demo, therefore the custom defined form elements
needs to be configured as required Syncfusion components such as DropDownList and DateTimePicker which needs to be

it should be prevented to book with multiple appointments on the same time for which the
IsSlotAvailable method is used. This method returns true, if the underlying cell is available for adding new events by checking
whether it already has any events in it.
