Navigate Time Cells and Dates in the Scheduler
To navigate dates, you can use the View Navigator shown below.
Use the left and right arrow buttons to go to the previous or next time interval (next day, week, month, depending on the currently visible date interval). The Today scrolls the view to locate the current date.
The Calendar control is designed specifically for the date navigation and selection task. It is shown in the following picture.
The availability of the Calendar depends on the application vendor.
