    Step 2 of 4: Creating the Data Templates and Adding C1Scheduler
    In This Topic

    In this step you will create the Data Templates for the different C1Scheduler views and the C1Schedule and C1Calendar controls that will make up your main view.

    1. Add the following markup after the style and brush resources to create the C1Scheduler Converter and the Data Template for displaying a single day:

      XAML
      Copy Code
      <!-- C1Scheduler converters -->
          <c1:DateTimeToStringConverter x:Key="DateTimeToStringConverter"/>
          <c1:BooleanToVisibilityConverter x:Key="BooleanToVisibilityConverter"/>
          <c1:VisualIntervalToStringConverter x:Key="VisualIntervalToStringConverter"/>
      
          <!-- determines the style used for displaying single day (selects different styles for current day and other days -->
          <c1:DayIntervalStyleSelector x:Key="DayStyleSelector">
              <c1:DayIntervalStyleSelector.Resources>
                  <ResourceDictionary>
      
                  <DataTemplate x:Key="DayHeaderTemplate">
                      <Button HorizontalContentAlignment="Stretch" VerticalContentAlignment="Center"
                                     c1:CommandExtensions.CommandParameter="{Binding Path=Scheduler.OneDayStyle}"
                                   c1:CommandExtensions.Command="c1:C1Scheduler.ChangeStyleCommand"
                                     c1:CommandExtensions.CommandTarget="{Binding Path=Scheduler}">
                              <Button.Style>
                                  <Style TargetType="Button">
                                      <Setter Property="Template">
                                          <Setter.Value>
                                              <ControlTemplate TargetType="Button">
                                                  <Grid>
                                                      <VisualStateManager.VisualStateGroups>
                                                         <VisualStateGroup x:Name="CommonStates">
                                                             <VisualState x:Name="Normal" />
                                                               <VisualState x:Name="MouseOver">
                                                                  <Storyboard>
                                                                      <ObjectAnimationUsingKeyFrames BeginTime="00:00:00"
                                                                                  Duration="00:00:00.0010000"
                                                                                  Storyboard.TargetName="DayHeaderBorder"
                                                                                  Storyboard.TargetProperty="Background">
                                                                              <DiscreteObjectKeyFrame KeyTime="00:00:00" Value="{StaticResource DayHeader_HoverBrush}"/>
                                                                          </ObjectAnimationUsingKeyFrames>
                                                                      </Storyboard>
                                                                  </VisualState>
                                                              </VisualStateGroup>
                                                          </VisualStateManager.VisualStateGroups>
                                  <Border x:Name="DayHeaderBorder" BorderBrush="#FF5A8ECE" VerticalAlignment="Stretch"  BorderThickness="0,0,0,1" Margin="0">
                                      <Border.Background>
                                          <LinearGradientBrush EndPoint="0.5,1" StartPoint="0.5,0">
                                              <GradientStop Color="#FFE7EEF7" Offset="0"/>
                                              <GradientStop Color="#FFD9E5F4" Offset="0.5"/>
                                              <GradientStop Color="#FFC9D9EE" Offset="0.5"/>
                                              <GradientStop Color="#FFE6EDF7" Offset="1"/>
                                          </LinearGradientBrush>
                                      </Border.Background>
                                      <ContentPresenter Content="{TemplateBinding Content}" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" />
                                                          </Border>
                                                      </Grid>
                                                  </ControlTemplate>
                                              </Setter.Value>
                                          </Setter>
                                      </Style>
                                  </Button.Style>
                              <c1:C1DockPanel>
                              <TextBlock c1:C1DockPanel.Dock="Right" Margin="2" FontWeight="Semibold" Text="{Binding Converter={StaticResource VisualIntervalToStringConverter},
                              ConverterParameter='ddd MMMM d, yyy'}"/>                                                   
                  <!-- Add empty block to fill panel (it's needed for command) -->
                              <TextBlock />
                             </c1:C1DockPanel>
              </Button>
          </DataTemplate>
      

    2. Insert the following XAML to create the Data Template for the Today Header:

      XAML
      Copy Code
      <DataTemplate x:Key="TodayHeaderTemplate">
              <Button HorizontalContentAlignment="Stretch" VerticalContentAlignment="Center"
                     c1:CommandExtensions.CommandParameter="{Binding Path=Scheduler.OneDayStyle}"
                     c1:CommandExtensions.Command="c1:C1Scheduler.ChangeStyleCommand"
                     c1:CommandExtensions.CommandTarget="{Binding Path=Scheduler}">
                      <Button.Style>
                          <Style TargetType="Button">
                              <Setter Property="Template">
                                  <Setter.Value>
                                      <ControlTemplate TargetType="Button">
                                          <Grid>
                                              <VisualStateManager.VisualStateGroups>
                                                  <VisualStateGroup x:Name="CommonStates">
                                                      <VisualState x:Name="Normal" />
                                                          <VisualState x:Name="MouseOver">
                                                              <Storyboard>
                                                                  <ObjectAnimationUsingKeyFrames BeginTime="00:00:00"
                                                                                      Duration="00:00:00.0010000"
                                                                                      Storyboard.TargetName="DayHeaderBorder"
                                                                                      Storyboard.TargetProperty="Background">
                                                                  <DiscreteObjectKeyFrame KeyTime="00:00:00" Value="{StaticResource TodayHeader_HoverBrush}"/>
                                                                  </ObjectAnimationUsingKeyFrames>
                                                              </Storyboard>
                                                          </VisualState>
                                                      </VisualStateGroup>
                                                  </VisualStateManager.VisualStateGroups>
                                                  <Border BorderThickness="0,0,0,1" x:Name="DayHeaderBorder"
                                                                            BorderBrush="Orange" Background="{StaticResource C1Scheduler_TodayHeader_Brush}"
                                                         VerticalAlignment="Stretch" Margin="0">
                                                      <ContentPresenter Content="{TemplateBinding Content}"
                                                                                   HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" />
                                                          </Border>
                                                      </Grid>
                                                  </ControlTemplate>
                                              </Setter.Value>
                                          </Setter>
                                      </Style>
                                  </Button.Style>
                                  <c1:C1DockPanel>
                                      <TextBlock c1:C1DockPanel.Dock="Right" Margin="2" FontWeight="Semibold"
                                             Text="{Binding Converter={StaticResource VisualIntervalToStringConverter},
                                             ConverterParameter='ddd MMMM d, yyy'}"/>
          <!-- Add empty block to fill panel (it's needed for command) -->
                                      <TextBlock />
                                  </c1:C1DockPanel>
                              </Button>
                          </DataTemplate>
      

    3. The XAML below will create the styles for the Day Header and the Today Header:

      XAML
      Copy Code
      <!-- determines the style of the day header. It is used in all Office 2007 views -->
                          <Style x:Key="C1Scheduler_Day_Style" TargetType="c1:C1ListBoxItem">
                              <Setter Property="BorderThickness" Value="0,0,1,1" />
                              <Setter Property="HorizontalContentAlignment" Value="Stretch" />
                              <Setter Property="VerticalContentAlignment" Value="Stretch" />
                              <Setter Property="UseLayoutRounding" Value="true" />
                              <Setter Property="Template">

                                                               ContentTemplate="{StaticResource DayHeaderTemplate}" />
                                                  <ContentPresenter Content="{TemplateBinding Content}"
                                                               ContentTemplate="{TemplateBinding ContentTemplate}"    
                                                                          HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" />
                                              </c1:C1DockPanel>

          <!-- determines the style of the today header. It is used in all Office 2007 views -->
                          <Style x:Key="C1Scheduler_Today_Style" TargetType="c1:C1ListBoxItem">
                              <Setter Property="BorderThickness" Value="1,0,1,1" />
                              <Setter Property="HorizontalContentAlignment" Value="Stretch" />
