building a scheduler from scratch

P: n/a
VMI
I'm searching for a way to build a scheduler that will store its data in sql
server. I've searched google but it mostly displays sites that sell
scheduler controls.
Anyone know of any sites that show more or less how to build a simple
scheduler control?

Thanks.

What do you mean by Scheduler?
I've got a couple of windows services that have timers in them, and execute
code every X number of minutes...

Hello ,

If you are trying to build an outlook style month view calendar in ASP.Net,
I can help. Just expand by what you mean by a Schedular.

If the source is available or anybody would like to discuss scheduled
services I'd like to check it out. I'm using 2.0 to build an XML editor and
aggregator for RSS feeds and need to learn how to poll feed items, notably
the ttl element.

Sorry for the confusion. It's an outlook-type scheduler that I was looking
for.

THanks.

Yes, it's an outlook-style scheduler.
Although it was initially windows-based, the web-based scheduler sounds very
interesting. Are there any links that will help me build an outlook-type
scheduler in asp.net? It would be writing to an sql server DB.

Thanks.

A bit of an aside: I did a lot of looking at calendar (UI visualisation)
controls a while ago; *at the time* (haven't checked since) the best of the
bunch (for my needs) was "ILOG Gantt for .NET"; very quick at runtime, easy
to develop, highly customisable, a range of views, plus (in the one license)
versions for both winforms and asp.net that share a consistant programming
model.

OK it's not cheap for the hobbyist, but very fair for corporate; and if I
sound too enthusiastic: no, I don't work for them, I was just impressed.

Note: this is a visualisation component only; you would still need to figure
out how to persist the objects (plus, erm, your entire application flow),
but IIRC the samples do include enough to give you a few starters.

Have you checked out the controls from CalendarGo. They are more
reasonably priced and for slightly more money you are able to have full
source code. I have been working on a scheduler application for the past
few weeks and this control has, so far, meet my needs. My only issue now
is trying to customize the time increments when moving an "appointment".
Currently, the time changes based on the view, I am looking to alter
this to increment at 15 minute intervals. If anyone out there is
familiar with this product, I would greatly appreciate suggestions.

Will the scheduler in sql not work for your needs? If you just need it on
the client, there are some schedulers on the CodeProject. You can then
store data anyway you like (i.e. xml, DB, etc)
