DevExtreme React Scheduler – UI Overview

Our Google-inspired React Scheduler for Material-UI continues to evolve - our most recent update includes two major new features: resources support and appointment grouping. Before we describe these two features (a separate post is coming), we thought it would be best to document the basics of our React Scheduler and its UI elements.

Since a “moving” picture is worth a thousand words, we published a video on our YouTube channel that describes the following:

  • Individual React Scheduler UI elements and appointment/event visualization options
  • Appointment/event editing via built-in UI elements
  • Recurring appointment/event editing via built-in UI elements
  • Drag & Drop support
  • Resources and appointment/event organization within a calendar
  • Appointment/event grouping by resources and dates


    You can download the video’s script using the following URL: UI Overview Video Script.

    As always, we welcome your thoughts. Please comment below and let us know what you think of our React Scheduler and its new features.

    Early last year, we introduced annotation support to DevExtreme Charts. With our v20.1 release, we’ve extended annotation support to our Polar Chart. You can now apply text, image, or custom annotations as needed. Once you create an annotation, you can attach it to a Polar Chart element (such as a series point) or display it at specific coordinates.
