];

Details
  • The method calls the onOptionsLoad event and resets the lightbox.
  • The collection can be created with the serverList method.

Examples

Select control

Let's assume that you have the lightbox as in:

scheduler.config.lightbox.sections=[   
    {name:"description", ...},
    {name:"items", height:23, type:"select", options:scheduler.serverList("goods"), 
    map_to:"section_id" }, 
    {name:"time", ...}
];

With such declaration it would be possible to update options in the select control through the list named 'goods'.
To update the 'goods' list you can use:

scheduler.updateCollection("goods", new_goods_array);

Units view

Let's assume that you have the Units view as in:

scheduler.createUnitsView({
    name:"unit",
    property:"section_id",
    list:scheduler.serverList("units", sections),
    size:20,
    step:1
});

To update the list of displayed units you can use:

scheduler.updateCollection("units", new_sections_array);
