WinForms Scheduler Key Features

Data Bound or Unbound Schedules

The WinForms Scheduler gives you the option of using standard ADO.NET data binding or using a built-in, unbound datasource. When data binding, you can map each column in your data set to appointment subject, time, categories, contacts, labels, resources, and the status. Unbound can be stored stored locally as XML.
