I was actually thinking of porting my Calendar over to Desktop edition. If someone doesn't present an already existing calendar that's as good as or better than mine, I may just do that.

Incidentally, I'm a bit intrigued how you got the two-letter abbreviations, Guntard. I know I didn't program that. :)

Hi Jason,
I searched the web for the calendar control. There is nothing which is comparable or comes close to your WebCal.
Porting your Calendar over to Desktop edition would be very nice.

In Event Handlers Open:
mMonthsOfYear = kMonths.Split(",")
mDaysOfWeek = kDays.Split(",")

mDaysAbv = Abbreviate(mDaysOfWeek, 2) ' *****
mMonthsAbv = Abbreviate(mMonthsOfYear, 3)

ActiveDate = New Date
mDayGridDates = New Dictionary
mHighlightDates = New Dictionary

mInitialized = True

Paint()
Open()

Thanks again for your nice control and your generosity to public your calendar.
.
Gunthard

@georgelbs:
Thank you for the hint. I tried the plugin with WinXP, but after running debug and stop the app, the app freezes and I have to use taskmanager.

I am currently creating a CalendarView:

I think I will also add a year view in a future update.

If you would like to test it, send me a PM ;)

Ohhh, very nice! I look forward to having a need for a desktop calendar just so I can test that out.

Excellent work! :)

I don't know if gunthard is still monitoring this topic.

But this is most likely what he was asking for:

the year view adapts the display depending on the aspect ratio (6x2, 4x3, 3x4, 2x6)

Ivanomonti, this is written in pure RB, no plugins. It will be available very soon on my website: http://www.jeremieleroy.com

I am still in beta testing stage right now.

We've been working on some calendar classes too. They're not quite ready for release yet but we're getting there.

Month View

Week View

Variable Week View

We are also prepping code that communicates with Outlook and iCal so you can sync your calendars.
