    Hi,
    When using the background color the labels doesn’t correspond anymore with the appointment.

    I have 10 calendars, from 1 to 10. There is not always data for each calendar in a view. How can I accomplish that the color for each calendar and the corresponding label is always the same? This is a standard functionality in most calendars. You can define a color for each calendar, or resource, and it is always used.
    An example of this is Google Calendar. Once you have chosen a color for a calendar, it remains always the same.

    It’s annoying for a user to have his calendar in red in one view, and in green in another view. I don’t load all the appointments all the time, so in some views there is only data for 6 calendars, in another view there are 8, and so on.

    I hope you understand the problem?

    Best regards,
    Chris Andries

    Hello Chris Andries,

    I am not sure I understand you well.
    Could you clarify it?
    You could use the “background” filed of the appointmentDataFields object to define one color for the appointment that you want to have a specific color.
    As in the example above which demonstrates exactly how to set specific color for an appointment.
    Also, what you mean with “10 calendars” do you mean that you have “10 jqxSchedulers?
    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Hi,

    With the background color, i can use the colors I want, but I’m not able to use the LEGEND in the same color.

    I have one sheduler, and I want to show the appointments of 5 people. I load the data week by week. In the first week I have appointments for person 1,2 and 5. They will get a color, and in the legend I have the same color. Now I go the the following week, and I have data for person 1,2,3,5. The color for person 5 will change. So in each view the appointments for the same person the color changes. This way the sheduler can’t be used in a production environment, my users will never accept this.
    If you use Google Calendar and you have color for the agenda of 1 user, this remains always the same. This is a normal behaviour and should be default.

    The use of a color scheme is maybe a good idea, but if you can’t define a color for each calendar of a person, or for a room as in the samples, you can never use it in production. This continu change of colors won’t be accepted by users of the system. It’s a bad user experience this way.

    Best regards,
    Chris Andries

    Hello Chris Andries,

    I got your point of view now after I reproduce your scenario.
    Thank you for this feedback.
    I created a work item for this case.

    Hello Chris Andries,

    After I discuss this with my colleagues I would like to suggest you look at the right approach to achieve that:

    Hi,

    I’m afraid this is not a solution. If you open the sheduler on a week where there are no appointments for person2, the color of person3 and person4 will change.

    The goal is that every person has always the same color in the sheduler.

    I accomplished it by creating hidden appointments for every person, each time in the same order, but this is a ‘dirty’ workaround for something that should be possible by default.

    Hello Chris Andries,

    This appropriate approach to create default values for “Rooms” that you want to have.
    On the other side, the common case uses the DataAdapter for the jqxScheduler’s resources and it depends on the initial records (appointments).
    You do not need to worry about this.

    Hristo Hristov
