Row Auto Height in JavaScript (ES5) Schedule control

22 Oct 2021 / 5 minutes to read

By default, the height of the Scheduler rows in Timeline views are static and therefore, when the same time range holds multiple overlapping appointments, a +n more text indicator will be displayed. With this feature enabled, you can now view all the overlapping appointments present in those specific time range by auto-adjusting the row height based on the presence of the appointments count, instead of displaying the +n more text indicators.

To enable auto row height adjustments on Scheduler Timeline views and Month view, set true to the rowAutoHeight property whose default value is false.

This auto row height adjustment is applicable only on all the Timeline views as well as on the calendar Month view.

Now, let’s see how it works on those applicable views with examples.

Calendar month view

By default, the rows of the calendar Month view can hold only the limited appointments count based on its row height, and the rest of the overlapping appointments are indicated with a +n more text indicator. The following example shows how the month view row auto-adjusts based on the number of appointments count, when this rowAutoHeight feature is enabled.

Timeline views

When the feature rowAutoHeight is enabled in Timeline views, the row height gets auto-adjusted based on the number of overlapping events occupied on the same time range, which is demonstrated in the following example.

Appointments occupying entire cell

By default, with the feature rowAutoHeight, there will be a space in the bottom of the cell when appointment is rendered. To avoid this space, we can set true to the property ignoreWhitespace with in eventSettings whereas its default property value is false. In the following code example, the whitespace below the appointments has been ignored.
