In this article, you can find some frequently asked questions and corresponding solutions while getting hands-on experience with scheduler control.

Grouping with empty resources

Grouping without providing any resource data will throw the following problems.

  • Normal(vertical) views are rendered, but you are not able to perform CRUD operations
  • Timeline views not at all render and shows empty scheduler table

So, we suggest to avoid grouping with empty resources in the scheduler.

QuickInfoTemplate at bottom

When using the quickInfoTemplate in scheduler, sometimes quickinfo popup not shown fully at the bottom area of scheduler. You can resolve this by using cellClick and eventClick events and below code snippet.

Copied to clipboard
var eventAdded = false;

var scheduleObj = new ej.schedule.Schedule({
.
.
  cellClick: onClick,
  eventClick: onClick
});

scheduleObj.appendTo('#Schedule');

function onClick(args) {
  if (!this.eventAdded) {
let popupInstance = document.querySelector('.e-quick-popup-wrapper').ej2_instances[0];
popupInstance.open = () => {
  popupInstance.refreshPosition();
};
this.eventAdded = true;
  }
}

Not processing culture files while using localization

Error Image:

Locale import issue

While using locale in scheduler, not processing the loadCultureFiles properly throws the problem.

Solution: Properly add the culture files(numberingSystems, timeZoneNames, loadCldr, L10n etc.,) and loadCultureFiles method in your project will resolve the problem.

Copied to clipboard
loadCultureFiles();
var localeTexts;
var localeAjax = new ej.base.Ajax('./locale.json', 'GET', false);
localeAjax.onSuccess = function (value) {
  localeTexts = value;
};
localeAjax.send();
ej.base.L10n.load(JSON.parse(localeTexts));

function loadCultureFiles() {
  // Processing culture files
  var files = ['ca-gregorian.json', 'numbers.json', 'numberingSystems.json', 'timeZoneNames.json'];
  var loader = ej.base.loadCldr;
  var loadCulture = function (prop) {
var val, ajax;
ajax = new ej.base.Ajax('./' + files[prop], 'GET', false);
ajax.onSuccess = function (value) {
  val = value;
};
ajax.send();
loader(JSON.parse(val));
  };
  for (var prop = 0; prop < files.length; prop++) {
loadCulture(prop);
  }
}

var scheduleObj = new ej.schedule.Schedule({
  width: '100%',
  height: '550px',
  locale: 'fr-CH',
}
});
scheduleObj.appendTo('#Schedule');
