Preset Columns per day

I need a feature to allow a day to be split into x number of columns per day. Would this be possible?

At the moment you can add more than one item to a cell to sort of do this but it makes it very difficult to be able to see if there is a free slot if we split a calendar into 3. 

Im using the control to book out company resources and certain resources can be split into 3rds for example.  I need to be able to book 1/3, 2/3 or the whole lot and also see if i have free slots for that cell/time slot.

Please advise if there is a way i could do this or whether the control could be modified in any way to do this.

TIA
Damian

What view are you referring to? Also, is it possible to draw a sketch of what you want to achieve and send it to support@mindfusion.org?

Thank you,
Meppy

Ahhh!- I'ive been investigating more myself and i think ive half answered my own question.

I'd not used the controls resource functions as i didnt realise you could add resources to the timetable view! Doh!!

This would almost sort my problem as i would get the multi-column per day view that i was after - although im going to have to write some code to now bend my app a bit because i use a calendar per resource and thats how its stored in the sql server database.

I'll go and have a play with the resource function of the control and see if i can get it to work with my app.

What i did notice from the demo was you cannot create the same booking for multiple resources by highlighting the same cells for each resource - as you do for adding a booking covering mutliple cells for a single resource.  Would this be do-able? I can add a tick box to add to other resources in the mean time.

Thanks for the quick reply!

Indeed, you cannot add an item to more than one resources interactively. Regardless you can create the item for a single resource, then handle the ItemCreated event and associate that item with additional resources as desired.
