Sample event calendar views

The following area some sample event calendar views. You can apply or mix configurations to get your own event calendar views in addition to the following samples:

  1. View day only: Event calendar configured with the "day" view option only, the "Default View" should be "day". The views "Week", "Month", "nMonth" should be unchecked. To fix the height, just add (for example) the parameter "height:400". Event Calendar sample for this view: http://wordpress.dwbooster.com/demos/multi-view/01-view-day-only.html

  2. View week only: Event calendar configured with the view week option only; the "Week" view should be enabled and the default view should be "week". The views "Day", "Month" and "nMonth" should be disabled. To fix the height, just add (for example) the parameter "height:400". Event Calendar sample for this view: http://wordpress.dwbooster.com/demos/multi-view/02-view-week-only.html

  3. View month only: Event calendar configured with the view month option only. To get this enable the "Month" view and set the default view to "month". The views "Day", "Week" and "nMonth" should be unchecked. To fix the height, just add (for example) the parameter "height:400". Event Calendar sample for this view: http://wordpress.dwbooster.com/demos/multi-view/03-view-month-only.html

  4. View n-Months only: Event calendar configured with the view n-Months option only. This can be done by setting the amount of months to display in the event calendar to 12, enable only the "n-Month" view and setting the "Default View" to "nMonth". All the other views and buttons should be unchecked. In the styles for this sample we have selected to fix the calendar width. Event Calendar sample for this view: http://wordpress.dwbooster.com/demos/multi-view/04-view-n-months-only.html

  5. Small event calendar: You can configure the event calendar just like a single small event calendar. This can be done by selecting the n-Months view and setting the "Number of Months for nMonths View" dropdown select box to 1. Event Calendar sample for this view: http://wordpress.dwbooster.com/demos/multi-view/05-small-calendar.html

  6. n-Month view, only one month, large view: Event calendar with the n-Month view configured to display a single month in a large view. To get this result enable only the "n-Month" view and add the styles specified in the following event calendar sample page: http://wordpress.dwbooster.com/demos/multi-view/06-one-month-large-view.html

  7. n-Month view with 2 months using all the width: To get this result in the event calendar enable only the "n-Month" view, set the "Number of Months for nMonths View" dropdown select box to 2 and add the styles specified in the following sample page to fix the width of both the event calendar area and the width of each month: http://wordpress.dwbooster.com/demos/multi-view/07-two-months-using-all-the-width.html

  8. n-Month view, 3 months with vertical align: The first settings needed to get this event calendar configuration is to enable only the "n-Month" view and set the "Number of Months for nMonths View" dropdown select box to show 3 months. After that proceed to add some CSS styles to fix the width to the desired column width. This way you can publish the calendar in the sidebar of your website. Event Calendar sample for this view: http://wordpress.dwbooster.com/demos/multi-view/08-various-months-with-vertical-align.html

  9. Tooltip displayed on month,week and day view: In this event calendar sample, when you click over an event in the calendar, a floating tooltip panel with additional information is displayed. This type of tooltip is available for the month, week and day views. The n-Month view has a different type of tooltip panel. To enable the tooltips, the parameter "showtooltipdwm" must be set to "true" (or enable it by checking the checkbox in the visual configuration). In addition to these parameters, add also the styles mentioned in the following page as instructed: http://wordpress.dwbooster.com/demos/multi-view/09-tooltip-displayed.html

  10. Lighter view for events and center align: This event calendar sample features the month, week and day views showing the events with a more lighter view: a color border is used instead filled backgrounds and the text is centered. The tooltips are already enabled for this sample; to enable the tooltips you can do that by checking the tooltip checkbox in the visual configuration or just by setting parameter "showtooltipdwm" to "true", this is also explained in other demos. To get the more lighter view you can add the styles indicated at this page: http://wordpress.dwbooster.com/demos/multi-view/10-lighter-view-center-align.html

  11. Multi-line event description: Event calendar that displays a multi-line event description in the month, week and day views, this is useful to display more information directly over the calendar. Only two CSS rules should be added to the styles to get this configuration. It will work with any selection of parameters if you are using one of the mentioned views. Check the detailed instructions at this page: http://wordpress.dwbooster.com/demos/multi-view/11-multi-line-event-description.html

  12. Images and HTML formatting in tooltip: The tooltips on the event calendar can show images and formatted text. There are some styles that can be used to show/hide/customize the title, location, description and time: these styles are the CSS classes named "bubbletitle", "bubblelocation", "bubbledescription" and "bubbletime". In this sample we have used only the class "bubbletime" to align it at the bottom of the content/image: http://wordpress.dwbooster.com/demos/multi-view/12-images-and-html-formatting-in-tooltip.html

  13. Images directly on the calendar cells: You can use this event calendar like a picture calendar. The images should be added to the event description and the css rules mentioned in the following page to complete the formatting: http://wordpress.dwbooster.com/demos/multi-view/13-images-directly-on-the-calendar-cells.html

  14. Show only from Monday to Friday: In this event sample we have disabled the Saturday and Sunday since this is a common configuration. In the "viewWeekDays" parameter, each number in the array represents a weekday from Sunday to Saturday. An zero means that the weekday is disabled (not shown) and a 1 means that the day is enabled (shown). Details at: http://wordpress.dwbooster.com/demos/multi-view/14-show-only-from-monday-to-friday.html

  15. Using 12 or 24 hour clock: This event calendar supports both the 12 and the 24 hour clock (also known as military time). The 24-hour clock is enabled as default; if you prefer to use the 12-hour clock then just set the parameter "militaryTime" to "false". Event calendar sample for this view: http://wordpress.dwbooster.com/demos/multi-view/15-using-12-or-24-hour-clock.html

  16. Showing the n-Days view: With this event calendar view you can display many days in a view similar to the single day view. First you should enable the "nDays" view and then set the number of days to view on each calendar page. The parameters are viewNDays:true for enabling the view, numberOfDays:10 for setting the number of days and viewdefault:"nDays" to make it the default view if needed. Event calendar sample for this view: http://wordpress.dwbooster.com/demos/multi-view/16-n-days-view.html

  17. Selecting hours to be shown: In some applications you may want to select only some hours to be shown in the event calendar, for example working hours. In the "Days", "nDays" and "Week" views you can select the range of hours to be shown be setting the start and end hours. Three parameters must be specified for this: the start hour hoursStart:8, the end hour hoursEnd:17 and the height of a single hour cell cellheight:60. Hours are in military time, so 17 means 5:00pm. Event calendar sample for this view: http://wordpress.dwbooster.com/demos/multi-view/17-selecting-hours-to-be-shown.html

  18. Using drop-down lists for location and title: The location and title that are part of each event's description in the calendar are open/editable fields by default but you can convert them in drop-down lists to make them easier to edit and keep the data consistency. Event calendar sample for this view and detailed instructions: http://wordpress.dwbooster.com/demos/multi-view/18-lists-for-location-and-title.html

  19. Multi-column day view, location or title: In this event calendar sample the location and title have been converted in drop-down lists as explained in the previous sample #18. In addition to that now we have selected to use the "title" field as the column header in the day view, this way the events are placed in different columns agrupated by their titles. The same can be done with the location instead the title. Event calendar sample for this view and detailed instructions: http://wordpress.dwbooster.com/demos/multi-view/19-multi-column-day-view.html

  20. Day view with location & title grid: The event calendar day view can be modified to show the title and location as headers of the rows and column instead the default single columns and the hour in the row header. This is useful to display informations agrupated by title and location on each day. Event calendar sample for this view and detailed instructions: http://wordpress.dwbooster.com/demos/multi-view/20-day-view-with-location-title-grid.html
