I have put the update of my Dojo Calendar on hold for a while. First I am extremely busy with work here at SNAPPS creating templates for the upcoming release of Lotus Quickr, secondly I’m upgrading all my code to fit better in the upcoming 0.9 release of the Dojo Toolkit.

I’m also looking into integrating with Google Calendar using their API. With PHP you can use the Zend Framework to do that. The next step is to port all my current PHP code over to Java Server Pages (JSP).

I’m very excited that over 200 has downloaded the code from the original post, so there must be some interest out there.

I have a few questions for you the reader.

  • What are your plans to use Dojo Calendar for?
  • What database will you use to store your calendar entries?
  • If you are one of the over 200 that has uploaded the original code. Have you done or are planning any modifications to the code?

  1. The only mod made was to extend the icon number of the meeting/appt to allow for different icons/background colors of certain entries. i.e. based on a value on the calendar document, outputted a fake icon #.

    I essentially wanted this to be replacement for a regular calendar view, but a personal calendar. I didn’t need the appt, mtg, etc. icons.

    it was not the most elegant way to do it, but it worked.

    i.e.
    switch(iconNum){
    case “10”:
    type = [“appointment”];
    break;
    case “158”:
    type = [“meeting”];
    break;
    case “177”:
    case “9”:
    type = [“reminder”];
    break;
    case “900”:
    type = [“blue”];
    break;
    case “910”:
    type = [“green”];
    break;
    case “920”:
    type = [“red”];
    break;
    default:
    type = “”;
    break;

    in widget:

    green: {title: “Green”, src: dojo.uri.dojoUri(“../qsnapps/widget/templates/calimages/green.gif”)},

    i set the class here

    dojo.html.setClass(oLI, “listItem allDayEvent ” + “camp” + this.calendarEvents[i].type[t] );

    and added the following to the css

    .campBlue {
    background-color: #0066CC;
    }
    .campGreen {
    background-color: #339933;
    }
    .campRed {
    background-color: #990000;
    }

  2. Hi,

    First of all, a big thank you. You saved my day. I have searched so many places for something like this from past days.

    Your code gives me a good place to start writing my version for the product that I am working on. So yes I am planning to add resource locking and such. If you are interested I can post back my changes.

    We will using it against postgres DB in a java environment.
    Thanks again.

    no database, we will intgrate with MS exchange.

  5. Chris –
    Now there’s a good idea.

    If I ever get it to where I want it, I will definitely work on that.

  6. hi,
    I’m wondering why it became so silent around your calendar. isn’t anybody interessted in using it with dojo’s 0.9 API???

    Would be so nice to get it work. I just have several fields where I could place it. Because I’ve only worked with dojo 0.9 yet I’ve never see the calendar in real action πŸ™

    greets, and big thx if an update is practible πŸ™‚

  7. Viktor,

    Any plans on when part two will be available. I just downloaded dojo 1.0 and have not been able to get it to work.

    Any help would be appreciated. Don’t leave PHP forever.

  8. I’m working on getting the Dojo Calendar to work with 1.0. I should have it done in the next week or two.

  9. Hi Viktor,

    I am updating my application from 0.4 to 1.0, I was able to integrate your calendar with o.4 but not 1.0. can u please help me out.

    This could save lot off my time.

    Thanking you.

  10. Hi Viktor,

    I am trying to build an application that would use the calendar widget. I love the look and feel of your calendar but can’t get it to work. I downloaded the toolkit 1.1, mywidgets and the calendar.html but get nothing when viewed. I am currently using Firefox 2.0. I would also be interested in using mysql as a backend, is that something that will be coming out soon?

  11. Hi Viktor,

    Is your dojo calendar for 1.0 is ready, I was eagerly waiting for your calendar for long time.

  12. I’m looking to use dojo to improve my site, www.freetrainingplan.com and will need an attractive calendar.

    I would be great if you could contribute your work with latest dojo library.

    Michel

  13. I would use a MySQL database, because after that it can be changed for PostgreSQL easily.

  14. Your links on the orig post have changed?
    I am taken to tagcloud etc.

    Please update the links.

    Thanks,
    Sri.
