                     ScheduleView="WeekView"
                     ViewHeaderTapped="Handle_ViewHeaderTapped">
</schedule:SfSchedule>
//Creating  new instance of Schedule
SfSchedule schedule = new SfSchedule();
schedule.ScheduleView = ScheduleView.WeekView;

private void Handle_ViewHeaderTapped(object sender, ViewHeaderTappedEventArgs e)
{
    var dateTime = e.DateTime;
}

        <!--setting working hours properties -->
        <schedule:WeekViewSettings
            WorkStartHour="11.5"

NOTE
No need to specify the decimal point values for WorkStartHour and WorkEndHour, if you don’t want to set the minutes.

Changing StartHour and EndHour

Default value for StartHour and EndHour value is 0 to 24 to show all the time slots in WeekView. You need to set StartHour and EndHour property of WeekView, to show only the required time duration for end users. You can also set StartHour and EndHour in double value which will be converted to time to show required time duration in minutes.

<schedule:SfSchedule x:Name="schedule" ScheduleView="WeekView">
    <schedule:SfSchedule.WeekViewSettings>
        <!--setting working hours properties -->
        <schedule:WeekViewSettings
            StartHour="07.5"
            EndHour="18.5">
            <schedule:WeekViewSettings.WeekLabelSettings>
                <schedule:WeekLabelSettings TimeFormat="hh:mm" />
            </schedule:WeekViewSettings.WeekLabelSettings>
        </schedule:WeekViewSettings>
    </schedule:SfSchedule.WeekViewSettings>
</schedule:SfSchedule>
schedule.ScheduleView = ScheduleView.WeekView;
//Create new instance of WeekViewSettings
WeekViewSettings weekViewSettings = new WeekViewSettings();
WeekLabelSettings weekLabelSettings = new WeekLabelSettings();weekLabelSettings.TimeFormat = "hh:mm";
weekViewSettings.StartHour = 07.5;
weekViewSettings.EndHour = 18.5;
weekViewSettings.WeekLabelSettings = weekLabelSettings;
schedule.WeekViewSettings = weekViewSettings;

Changing StartHour and EndHour in schedule xamarin forms

NOTE

  • StartHour must be greater than or equal to 0 and EndHour must be lesser than or equal to 24, otherwise InvalidDataException will be thrown.
  • EndHour value must be greater than StartHour, otherwise InvalidDataException will be thrown.
  • Schedule UI such as Appointments and NonAccessibleBlocks which does not fall within the StartHour and EndHour will not be visible and if it falls partially, it will be clipped.
  • No need to specify the decimal point values for StartHour and EndHour, if you don’t want to set the minutes.
  • The number of time slots will be calculated based on total minutes of a day and time interval (total minutes of a day ((start hour - end hour) * 60) / time interval).
  • If the custom time interval is given, then the number of time slots calculated based on given time interval should result in integer value, otherwise given time interval will be neglected and default time interval (60 minutes) will be considered.
  • If the custom start hour and end hour is given, then the number of time slots calculated based on given start hour, end hour should result in integer value, otherwise given end hour will be rounded off. For example, if StartHour is 7.2 (07:12AM), EndHour is 18.6 (06:36AM) and TimeInterval is 60 minutes, then EndHour will be rounded off to 18.2 (06:12PM).
