The Scheduler supports custom sorting of overlapping events (inside rows). 

The default sorting rule corresponds to:

start asc, end desc

See also Exact Event Position.

JavaScript

JavaScript uses values from the sort array of DayPilot.Event.data. The events will be sorted in the order specified using sortDirections property. 

It can be enabled by specifying the sort directions in sortDirections.

<div id="dp"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
  var dp = new DayPilot.Scheduler("dp");
  dp.sortDirections = ["asc", "desc"];
  dp.events.list = [
    {
      start: "2013-03-25T00:00:00",
      end: "2013-03-25T12:00:00",
      id: "123",
      resource: "A",
      text: "Event 123",
      sort: [1, "Event 123"]
    },
    {
      start: "2013-03-25T00:00:00",
      end: "2013-03-25T12:00:00",
      id: "124",
      resource: "A",
      text: "Event 124",
      sort: [2, "Event 124"]
    }
  ];
  // ...
  dp.init();
</script>

Tutorial

ASP.NET WebForms

You can specify a custom sorting expression using EventSortExpression property.

Example:

EventSortExpression="priority asc, name desc"

Note that the priority and name fields must be available in the data source.

ASP.NET MVC

Use EventSortExpression to override the default sorting rule for concurrent events.

You can use custom database fields in the sort expression.

Example

EventSortExpression = "priority asc, name desc";
