ANN: Calendar Plugin

Post by MaxV » Thu Aug 09, 2018 1:35 pm

Hello,
I just released my free calendar plugin. The missing control in livecode :lol:
The official page is here: http://www.maxvessi.net/pmwiki/pmwiki.p ... ndarPlugin
It's a simple calendar to pick date for Livecode that owrks with any version of livecode, it has the following features:
  • multilanguage support (write me if you don't find your language)
  • first day of week customizable
  • auto positioning, so it's always all visible inside the card
  • colour customizable
Download: http://www.maxvessi.net/pmwiki/uploads/ ... Plugin.zip

To use it just unzip it and copy the file in you Livecode default folder, usually are these:
  • Windows: C:\Documents and Settings\max\Documenti\My LiveCode\plugins
  • Mac: /Users/max/Documents/My LiveCode/Plugins
  • Linux: /home/max/my_livecode/Plugins/
Now click Development -> Plugins -> CalendarPlugin, this way a menu to add the calendar button will appear. You can set your preferences from the panel or via script in your program.

You can always set these properties:
  • pdate : set the day of the button ("YYYY-MM-DD")
  • firstDay: set the first day of the calendar (1 = Sunday)
  • lang: set the language for months and week days. Send me an email for adding other languages
  • pTextColor: set the text color of calendar panel
  • pBgColor: set the text color of calendar backgroung panel
  • pBtnTextColor: set the text color of calendar button
  • pBtnBgColor: set the background color of calendar button

Thanks. Looks very nicely done. Will license info be provided? Without explicit licensing terms no one can know if they can use it.

Um, May want to change that from 'any version' to Lc 7.x and above :wink:
(Did not show up in 6.5.x, error is "not a stack")

I don't suppose you have magically dealt with pre 1970 years on Windows with that by any chance?

For myself, I have no objections. I have frequently wanted to throw up on github.

But only when you visit it, right?
