Open Source Solution for Migrating from ExpressScheduler to XtraScheduler

Introduction

Express2XtraScheduler is a .NET solution consisting primarily of two assemblies and a WinForms utility that simplify importing database data from the format stored by the DevExpress VCL ExpressScheduler into a format supported by the WinForms XtraScheduler control.

Contents

  • Express2XtraScheduler.Core.dll provides the functionality needed to import data from one format to another given a pair of database settings
  • Express2XtraScheduler.UI.dll provides UI controls for mapping source and destination database settings
  • Express2XtraScheduler.exe uses these assemblies to provide a simple utility for transferring data
  • ExpressSchedulerInterop.dll is a Delphi DLL used to read resource information stored as Delphi variants

Express2XtraScheduler App

The solution also contains two simple applications that allow testing both VCL and WinForms scheduler data: ExpressSchedulerApp and XtraSchedulerApp.
