Getting Started

An introduction to start with ReactJS can be referred from here. To get start with the usage of Schedule control in ReactJS platform, create a React application layout and refer the following dependencies to it. Refer the individual script references required to render the Schedule control from here.

  • html
  • <head>
        <meta charset="utf-8" />
        <title>Getting Started - Schedule</title>
        <!-- CSS reference -->
        <link href="http://cdn.syncfusion.com/19.3.0.43/js/web/flat-azure/ej.web.all.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />
    
        <!-- Script references -->
        <script src="http://cdn.syncfusion.com/js/assets/external/jquery-3.0.0.min.js"></script>

        <script src="http://cdn.syncfusion.com/19.3.0.43/js/common/ej.web.react.min.js"></script>
    </head>

    NOTE

    Uncompressed version of the library files are also available which is used for development or debugging purpose and can be generated from the custom script here.

    Control Initialization

    Scheduler can be initialized in either of the 2 ways by making use of the jsx template or without it.

    Using jsx Template

    While making use of jsx template, we have to create both the HTML and jsx files. The .jsx file should be converted into .js file using gulp command and then needs to be added as a reference in the HTML page.

    HTML file

  • html
  • <div id="schedule-default"></div>
    <script src="scripts/default.js"></script>

    JSX file

  • html
  • var dManager = [{
        Id: 1,
        Subject: "Bering Sea Gold",
        StartTime: new Date(2014, 4, 5, 5, 30),
        EndTime: new Date(2014, 4, 5, 7, 30),
        Description:"",
        AllDay: false,
        Recurrence: false
    }];
    
    ReactDOM.render(
          <EJ.Schedule id="Schedule1"
                       width="100%"
                       height="525px"
                       currentDate={new Date(2014, 4, 5)}
                       appointmentSettings-dataSource={dManager}
                       appointmentSettings-id="Id"
                       appointmentSettings-subject="Subject"
                       appointmentSettings-startTime="StartTime"
                       appointmentSettings-endTime="EndTime"
                       appointmentSettings-description="Description"
                       appointmentSettings-allDay="AllDay"
                       appointmentSettings-recurrence="Recurrence"
                       appointmentSettings-recurrenceRule="RecurrenceRule">
          </EJ.Schedule>, document.getElementById('schedule-default')
    );

    NOTE

    The above jsx template needs to be converted from .jsx to .js extension by using gulp NuGet package (refer here) and then it must be referred in the HTML page.

    Using without jsx Template

    Create a Div element within the body section of the HTML document, where the Scheduler needs to be rendered.

  • html
  • <body>
    	<div id="schedule"></div>
    </body>

    Initialize the Schedule control by adding the following script code to the body section of the HTML document.

  • html
  • <body> 
        <div id="schedule"></div>
    
        <script>
            var dManager = [{
                Id: 1,
                Subject: "Bering Sea Gold",
                StartTime: new Date(2014, 4, 5, 5, 30),
                EndTime: new Date(2014, 4, 5, 7, 30),
                Description:"",
                AllDay: false,
                Recurrence: false
            }];
            ReactDOM.render(
                React.createElement(EJ.Schedule, {
                    "id": "Schedule1",
                    "width": "100%",
                    "height": "525px",
                    "currentDate": new Date(2014, 4, 5),
                    "appointmentSettings-dataSource": dManager,
                    "appointmentSettings-id": "Id",
                    "appointmentSettings-subject": "Subject",
                    "appointmentSettings-startTime": "StartTime",
                    "appointmentSettings-endTime": "EndTime",
                    "appointmentSettings-description": "Description",
                    "appointmentSettings-allDay": "AllDay",
                    "appointmentSettings-recurrence": "Recurrence",
                    "appointmentSettings-recurrenceRule": "RecurrenceRule"
                }),document.getElementById('schedule')
            );
        </script>
    </body>

    Working with timeZone Settings

    Initially, the system timezone is preferred as the Schedule’s default timezone. When some specific timezone is explicitly defined to the Schedule, it will be set to it.

    Likewise, we can also set different timezones for the appointments. Usually, the system timezone is assigned as the appointment’s default timezone and it will be positioned on the Scheduler based on the start/end time range and timezone assigned to it.

    To set Scheduler timeZone and its appointment timeZone values, refer the below code example -

  • html
  • <body> 
        <div id="schedule"></div>
    
        <script>
            var dManager = [{
                Id: 1,
                Subject: "Bering Sea Gold",
                StartTime: new Date(2014, 4, 5, 5, 30),
                StartTimeZone: "UTC +02:00",
                EndTime: new Date(2014, 4, 5, 7, 30),
                EndTimeZone: "UTC +02:00",
                Description:"",
                AllDay: false,
                Recurrence: false
            }];
            ReactDOM.render(
                React.createElement(EJ.Schedule, {
                    "id": "Schedule1",
                    "width": "100%",
                    "height": "525px",
                    "currentDate": new Date(2014, 4, 5),
                    "timeZone": "UTC +05:30", // timeZone set to Scheduler
                    "appointmentSettings-dataSource": dManager,
                    "appointmentSettings-id": "Id",
                    "appointmentSettings-subject": "Subject",
                    "appointmentSettings-startTime": "StartTime",
                    "appointmentSettings-startTimeZone": "StartTimeZone",
                    "appointmentSettings-endTime": "EndTime",
                    "appointmentSettings-endTimeZone": "EndTimeZone",
                    "appointmentSettings-description": "Description",
                    "appointmentSettings-allDay": "AllDay",
                    "appointmentSettings-recurrence": "Recurrence",
                    "appointmentSettings-recurrenceRule": "RecurrenceRule"
                }),document.getElementById('schedule')
            );
        </script>
    </body>
