Events In Kendo Scheduler

Introduction:

In my previous articleI discussed about Remote binding in Kendo Scheduler. In this article let us start playing with Kendo Scheduler Event.

I will use the following REST service to explain how to perform event handling in the Kendo Scheduler.

REST service end point: Api/Events created in my previous article.

The Api/Events service response in POSTMAN as in the following figure:

 

Views in Kendo Scheduler

The kendo Scheduler have different views like Day view, week view, month view, agenda view and timeline view which can be implement using data-view property as in the following code:

  1. <div data-role="scheduler"    
  2.     data-views="['day','week','month','agenda','timeline']"                       
  3.     data-bind="source: tasks,    
  4.     visible: isVisible,                                        
  5.     style="height: 600px" data-selectable="true">    
  6.                         
  7. </div>

Events In Kendo Scheduler

DataBinding:

This event is fired when the widget binds to its data source

  1. <div id="example">
  2. <div data-role="scheduler"  
  3.              data-bind="source: tasks,  
  4.              visible: isVisible,
