Scheduler in Read-Only Mode

By default, the JavaScript Scheduler component is configured to allow drag and drop operations:

In order to make the Scheduler read-only, you need to disable the operations using the following properties:

<div id="dp"></div>

  var dp = new DayPilot.Scheduler("dp", {

    // ...
    timeRangeSelectedHandling: "Disabled",
    eventMoveHandling: "Disabled",
    eventResizeHandling: "Disabled",
    eventDeleteHandling: "Disabled",
    eventClickHandling: "Disabled",
    eventRightClickHandling: "Disabled",

    // ...

The values are resolved in real time (no update() is needed). You can change the behavior back by modifying the properties again:

dp.timeRangeSelectedHandling ="Enabled";
dp.eventMoveHandling = "Update";
dp.eventResizeHandling = "Update";
dp.eventDeleteHandling = "Update";
dp.eventClickHandling = "Enabled";
dp.eventRightClickHandling = "ContextMenu";

Disabling Drag and Drop for Individual Scheduler Events

You can also disable the operations for individual events using the event data object or onBeforeEventRender event handler:

dp.events.list = [
    id: "1",
    start: DayPilot.Date.today().firstDayOfMonth().addDays(1),
    end: DayPilot.Date.today().firstDayOfMonth().addDays(5),
    resource: "R2",
    text: "Event 1 (always read-only)",
    moveDisabled: true,
    resizeDisabled: true,
    clickDisabled: true,
    rightClickDisabled: true,
    deleteDisabled: true
    id: "2",
    start: DayPilot.Date.today().firstDayOfMonth().addDays(3),
    end: DayPilot.Date.today().firstDayOfMonth().addDays(8),
    resource: "R3",
    text: "Event 2"
