Language Support

Web2Cal supports multiple languages. It is very simple to support a new language.

Once you have downloaded the package, you will see the following object in web2cal.support.js

Web2CalLanguage_FR={ 
           CLOSE: "Close",
           DAYS:[ "Dimanche", "Lundi","Mardi","Mecredi", "Jeudi" , "Vendredi","Samedi"],
           DAYS_SHORT: [ "Dim","Lun", "Mar", "Mer", "Jeu", "Ven", "Sam"],
           DAYS_SHORT2: [ "Di","Lu", "Ma", "Me", "Je", "Ve", "Sa"],
           MONTHS_SHORT: ["Jan", "Fev","Mar", "Avr","Mai" ,"Jui", "Juil","Aou", "Sep","Oct","Nov","Dec"],
           MONTHS: ["Janvier", "Fevrier","Mars", "Avril","Mai" ,"Juin", "Juillet","Aout", "Septembre","Octobre","Novembre","Decembre"],
           LABEL_MONTH: "Mois",
           LABEL_WEEK: "Semaine"
          ... ..
 }

To support a new language, create a copy of the above object. Change the object-values to represent the values in desired language.

Update the Web2Cal.LANG variable to refer the newly created object.

Web2Cal.LANG=Web2CalLanguage_EN;

 

Time Picker

Web2Cal.TimeControl was created in an attempt to make it easy to enter time. TimeControl can be easily attached to any text box. The goal is to allow user enter or select from list.

new Web2Cal.TimeControl(TextBoxObject, Start-TimeTextBoxObject, Options)

Simple mode

Web2Cal.TimeControl(document.getElementById("eventStartTIme"));

Specifying a start time field to compute duration.

Web2Cal.TimeControl(document.getElementById("endStartTIme"),
                                 document.getElementById("eventStartTIme"));

Specifying a time format and callback

Web2Cal.TimeControl(document.getElementById("endStartTIme") ,    
                    document.getElementById("eventStartTIme"), 
                    {onTimeSelect: updateDateForTime, timeFormat: 24});

Version 2.0

Recurring Event

When you create an event in calendar, you can make it repeat over a period of time like once a week or every other Tuesday. Repeating events saves you the time and effort it would take to create multiple separate events and let’s you easily change all events in the series at once.

Web2Cal supports recurring scheduling patterns such as daily, weekly, monthly, yearly or set a range of recurrence from a date to date.

An event indicates the repeating pattern by specifying the "repeatObject" attribute. The attributes of the event object and repeatObject are described below with samples. 

 

var event = {
          repeatEvent: {
                  mode: "day|week|month|year" // represents the repeat mode. 
                  endDate:  Date or "MM/DD/YYYY", 
                  repeatCount: number
                  day: {onlyWeekDays: true|false} // further info for repeat type "day"
                  week: {days: ["0,1,2,3,4,5,6"]} // further info for repeat type "week"
                  month: {
                       weekNumber: "1|2|3|4|-1" // -1 represents last week of month
                     , weekDay: "0|1|2|3|4|5|6" // -1 represents last day of month
                     , repeatDate: Date or "YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS" 
                  } // further info for repeat type "month"
                  year: {date: Date or "YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS" } 
          }
          eventType: "null|EXCLUDE" 
          relEventId: number 
          sequence: number 
          deleted: true|false
}
