EventMove event stores the Ctrl and Shift key status. This allows implementation of drag and drop event copying.

Use MoveBy property to customize the drag handle location.

JavaScript

Drag and drop event moving is enabled by default (.eventMoveHandling = "Update"). You can disable it by setting eventMoveHandling to "Disabled".

Example

<div id="dp"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
  var dp = new DayPilot.Calendar("dp");
  dp.onEventMoved = function (args) {
    dp.message("Moved: " + args.e.text());

    // your own AJAX call to the server to notify it about the change
  };
  // ...
  dp.init();
</script>

ASP.NET WebForms

Drag and drop event moving is disabled by default.

It can be enabled using EventMoveHandling property. It has to be set to one of the following values:

  • CallBack
  • PostBack
  • Notify
  • JavaScript

PostBack event handling type will fire a server-side event handler (EventMove) using a PostBack (or partial AJAX PostBack if the Calendar is inside an UpdatePanel).

CallBack event handling type will fire a server-side event handler (EventMove) using an AJAX callback. CallBack is much faster than PostBack (and partial PostBack).

Notify event handling type will update the Calendar on the client immediately and then notifies the server (EventMove) using an AJAX callback. Notify is much faster than CallBack.

JavaScript event handling will fire the JavaScript code specified in EventMoveJavaScript.

Server-Side Handler

<DayPilot:DayPilotCalendar runat="server" id="DayPilotCalendar1"
  ...
  EventMoveHandling = "CallBack"
  OnEventMove="DayPilotCalendar1_EventMove" 
/>

Example EventMove handler:

protected void DayPilotCalendar1_EventMove(object sender, EventMoveEventArgs e)
{
  // update the database
  // ...

  // reload events and refresh the calendar on the client side
  DayPilotCalendar1.DataSource = LoadData();  // your method
  DayPilotCalendar1.DataBind();
DayPilotCalendar1.UpdateWithMessage("Event moved.");
}

If any changes are made to the event data set (which is the typical case), it is necessary to redraw the event set on the client side using an Update() call.

ASP.NET MVC

Drag & drop event moving is disabled by default.

It can be enabled using EventMoveHandling property. It has to be set to one of the following values:

  • CallBack
  • Notify
  • JavaScript

CallBack event handling will fire a server-side event handler (OnEventMove) using an AJAX callback.

Notify event handling type will update the Calendar on the client immediately and then notifies the server using an AJAX call. Notify is much faster than CallBack.

JavaScript event handling will fire the JavaScript code specified in EventMoveJavaScript.

  • The following variables are available to the client-side handler: e, newStart, newEnd, newResource, external, ctrl, shift (see DayPilot.Calendar.onEventMove)
  • The client side handler can call the server-side handler using eventMoveCallBack() method

Server-Side Handler

@Html.DayPilotCalendar("dpc", new DayPilotCalendarConfig {
  BackendUrl = ResolveUrl("~/Calendar/Backend"),
  ...
  EventMoveHandling = EventMoveHandlingType.CallBack
})

The EventMove event can be handled by overriding the OnEventMove method in the DayPilotCalendar implementing class:

protected override void OnEventMove(EventMoveArgs e)
{
  new EventManager(Controller).EventMove(e.Id, e.NewStart, e.NewEnd);
  Update();
}

protected override void OnFinish()
{
  // only load the data if an update was requested by an Update() call
  if (UpdateType == CallBackUpdateType.None)
  {
    return;
  }

  Events = new EventManager(Controller).FilteredData(StartDate, EndDate, (string)ClientState["filter"]).AsEnumerable();

  DataStartField = "start";
  DataEndField = "end";
  DataTextField = "text";
  DataIdField = "id";

}

If any changes are made to the event data set (which is the typical case), it is necessary to redraw the event set on the client side using an Update() call.
