I wish it is really just that - 'piece of flair' :).

Truth is, this app is still in active development stage. Things might break now and then and we are working on a few new cool features and fixing bugs everyday.

Until we enter a RC or feature-freeze stage, the badge will serves a good purpose of informing users about the status of the app.

We however, can promise that this won't be one of those 'two years and we are still in beta phase' thingie.

I put together a sample of how to grab events from the calendar and display them on your site using javascript. You can see it at my test page:

http://ucommbieber.unl.edu/workspace/UNLTemplates/

The code is fairly simple, and involves some javascript which grabs the list of upcoming events from the UNL Calendar, and placing the resulting xhtml snippet into a <div> within your page.

This will also work for individual calendars, such as: http://events.unl.edu/fpa/

Code: Select all
<div id="upcoming_events">
    <img src="/ucomm/templatedependents/templatecss/images/loadingContent.gif" alt="loading upcoming events" />
</div>
<script type="text/javascript">
    var my_calurl = "http://events.unl.edu/?upcoming&format=hcalendar";
    my_calreq = new XMLHTTP();
    my_calreq.open("GET", my_calurl, true);
    my_calreq.onreadystatechange = updateUpcomingEvents;
    my_calreq.send(null);
    function updateUpcomingEvents()
    {
        if (my_calreq.readyState == 4) {
            if (my_calreq.status == 200) {
                document.getElementById("upcoming_events").innerHTML = my_calreq.responseText;
            } else {
                document.getElementById("upcoming_events").innerHTML = 'Error loading results.';
            }
        }
        my_calreq = new XMLHTTP();
    }
</script>

Calendar options that would be nice.

It's been mentioned in our department that it'd be nice if the month view was in a printable format like a list format, with CSS print styles for optimal print quality. It would be good to be able to print your events out for the month and stick'm on your bulletin board.

It seems like even though I may be an admin to the Engineering Calendar, I can't edit events entered by another person. It'd be good if we could edit any entry on our department calendar regardless of who entered it. I believe this emplies that there would be a department level calendar and a personal calendar level.

This calendar is just getting up and running but I think this is a great thing. Having a centralized consistant calendar system brings a lot of different calendaring solutions together to keep us all on the same page.

This has been on our todo list since August... eek! If you could mock up a sample ideal printout style, and post a comment to the feature request that might expedite the implementation.

To edit an event, you must have originally created the event OR have 'Edit Event' permissions over the calendar which the event was originally created and posted to.

I'm guessing you can't edit specific events because they weren't created under the Engineering Calendar - were they created under another calendar and then a subscription brought them into the engr calendar...?

Just a guess.
