MindFusion has released new versions for two of its Silverlight controls – Scheduler and Reporter. Below are details about the new features:
Interactive Recurrence Rescheduling
Recurrences can be rescheduled interactively by holding down the RescheduleRecurrenceKey while dragging a recurrent item. The control tries to preserve the current pattern of the recurrence when possible. Otherwise, the recurrence may be modified to accommodate to the new start and end times of the modified item. Interactive rescheduling is not registered in the undo history.
A new built-in theme is available in the Silverlight Scheduling control – the Light theme. It is available through the ThemeType enumeration.
Several new properties and events have been added to the control:
- The RescheduleRecurrenceKey property in the Calendar class can be used to modify recurrences interactively.
- TickSize added to the ResourceViewSettings class.
- Calendar.FilterItem event.

Parameters can now be added to a report through the new Parameters collection of the Report class. The parameters provide name, description and value and can be of any type, including expression. For more information about parameters, check the Report Parameters topic.
