Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

    All of the views are available in the V4.3 Commercial and Enterprise editions.

    Just to clarify, the only difference between Commercial and Enterprise editions is the ability to have more than one scheduler on the same html page. Meaning you can load several different schedulers in a tabbed_ui, and so on, as each is housed in its own iFrame. Here's a quick video of several running in a tabbed_UI. Some are using V4.2 GPL and some V4.3 Commercial versions of the dhtmlxScheduler libraries.

    Starting with the 4.3 version of the dhtmlxScheduler libraries several of the views are only available in the non-GPL versions. You can, however, use the 4.2 version dhtmlxScheduler libraries that do include all the views. They provide a link to all the current and previous releases on Git, and my builder supports V4.2 or V4.3 of the dhtmlxScheduler libraries.

    It is meant as an alternative to Web2Cal and A5Jqcalender. All three have their own pros and cons.

    I plan on continuing support for A5Jqcalendar. I have a lot of developers using it so I continue to issue updates, as needed, to keep it current with the latest Alpha version.

    Yes, this scheduler can, technically, use your existing A5Jqcalender table, providing it is set up with date-time fields for start time and end time. This scheduler does not support separate date and time fields as the A5Jqcalendar does. Recurring events are handled very differently and there are some of the fields have no meaning with this scheduler. I would suggest creating a new table and importing the events into it.

    You "may" need to buy a dhtmlxScheduler license. The license terms for the dhtmlxScheduler libraries are not under my control. They have three models at present; GPL, Commercial, and Enterprise. Which license you need to purchase, if any, is based on how you use the scheduler. There are options for free (GPL), one commercial project (application), and unlimited commercial projects. I believe if you're building a scheduler for your own use you can use the free version. If you're selling the application, or making it available to others, then you need one of the commercial licenses, or you must adhere to the GPL (GNU V2) license terms. Note that their current license model is based on applications, not servers, and is a perpetual license. Personally, I find their license terms, and pricing, to be very good, especially when considering what they have built and how they support it.

    Yeah lets talk some turkey, lol. This looks great - what license do I need to have from DHX as well?
    Like iRadiate - I think it looks amazing as well.

    What I find especially cool with this component is their touch support, including drag and drop, that makes it work very well in the larger phone/tablet market.
    Here's a video of a mobile app running on an iPad with both the mapping view and drag and drop (near the end of the video) demonstrated.

    Jim lots of questions. Themes and styles come with it or do we use standard alpha themes. Email, does this support email reminders?
    By support I mean any integratio, not as I'm we can add our own basic, etc.
    Cost? Release date?
    Thanks, wishing you all success in 2015 +

    Re: Web2Cal updates?

    I've built an A5 add-on to integrate the DHX scheduler into an Alpha Anywhere application. Just finishing up the final touches on it now. It includes all the views, including timeline, with tree view, units, agenda, grid, etc. It is full featured and allows the user to leverage the full DHX scheduler's API. You can even build your own custom views. Filtering, on the client, as well as on the server is supported. SQL CRUD operations are all handled by the code. I'll post an announcement when it is released. A quick video of building a basic scheduler is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uOjwb-CuQU

The whole idea about building your own business apps is to get full control of your data, adding support for google and facebook, both logins and calendars, just doesnät make sense to me. I really don't understand why Alpha is spending time on integration with companies whose primary business model is to coolelct information about people. So at this stage I have to sign up to google and share all my data with them just to have a scheduling functionality in my alpha apps?!?
    .


    For a few weeks ago i read a post from DaveK about implementing a calendar from dhtmlx.com in A5.
    I am almost sure that Jim Coltz his calendar filters groups and user calendars in the way Web2Cal does check out video's at his website. It's heavy used in a A5 EMR/EHR medical apps in the US.

    Re: Web2Cal updates?

    I dunno, I never could get Web2Cal to work at all. I paid for the lic and tried support from both ends Alpha and Web2Cal - nothing ever worked so I bought Jims Calendar and that thing is working like a champ. I would definitely integrate Google calendar and hope it's super tightly integrated with a stock UX we could duplicate and customize for our own needs. Jim has been right on top of supporting his product and as I said works great. I really wanted web2cal to work especially since it's paid for and sitting in the junk pile, lol
