Schedule Object Details
The Schedule Area offers developers and end-users an intuitive Gantt style, drag and drop area for planning and scheduling multiple resources grouped and organized as required across various time lines and time-period presentations.
         
When managing resources across domains and with varying time tables there is a significant advantage offered by Solutions Schedule - being able to present multiple schedules each with differing time scales and schedule period spans (days, weeks etc.) - and all in one view that also allows dragging and dropping between the schedule objects for increased efficiency.
 
DBI Technologies Inc. - Solutions  Schedule v6 Multi Schedules single view
 
Within the Schedule Area there are a number of objects that offer fine grained interaction with schedule plans. For example:
 
DBI Technologies Inc. - Solutions Schedule .NET v6 - Schedule NotesNotes – Notes are stationary visual objects in the schedule. Tool tips with information about the note are displayed when the mouse hovers over the Note icon. Notes can be used to draw attention to important aspects of a schedule.
   
DBI Technologies Inc. - Solutions Schedule .NET v6 - More Time Bars ImageLine arrows are images placed at the start or end of a schedule item notifying the end-user that other tasks have been scheduled that are not within the viewable schedule area.
   
DBI Technologies Inc. - Solutions Schedule .NET v6 - Guide LinesGuide Lines are vertical lines within the schedule area for representing a critical point in time and also to help align time bars accurately.
   
DBI Technologies Inc. - Solutions Schedule .NET v6 - Current Time LineCurrent Time Line is a vertical line drawn in the schedule representing the current time of day. The Current Time Offset property can be used to display the line in different time zones.

DBI Technologies Inc. - Solutions Schedule .NET  v6 - Edit ModesEdit modes extend or restrict the CRUD aspects of Solutions Schedule .NET. There are seven specific edits modes:  Edit, Erase, Select, Link, Unlink, Split and Guideline, which can be presented via the Edit Modes Toolbar object.
         
DBI Technologies Inc. - Solutions Schedule .NET v6 - List GuideWe often encounter large schedule presentations having thousands of Resources with an exponential number of Time bars planned over an extended period of time. In these situations it's really nice having the List Guide feature available to assist interaction within the Schedule Area especially when the resource list / tree may not be in view.

Time Line Ruler  
     
The Schedule Ruler offers great flexibility for creating and managing activities, roles, appointments, etc. across any combination of time type and time value:
     
Time types include divisions of hours, days, weeks, months and years.
Time Distance values allow for managing resources down to the second - an important aspect when scheduling robotics - and to years for planning conferences, equipment rentals and production cycles having long durations.
The Time Distance property allows developers to create zoom-in and zoom-out capabilities for their schedule presentations.
Ruler Selection – The start and end time of a selected time bar is highlighted in the time line ruler, allowing for more accurate alignment of resource time allocations.
