    Default Calendar for A5v10??

    IMHO, the lack of a calendar feature has been a frustrating part of an otherwise great product. There are so many calendar plugins for VB, etc. and yet I have not seen anything resembling a graphical calendar for A5. The Calendar toolbox is not up to par and from searching the forums I'm sure I'm not the only one with these sentiments.

    While the codeless AJAX is nifty, I'd be really blown away with the ability to drag and drop record items in weekly or monthly calendar and have the corresponding fields updated as I do so.

    Anyone know if v10 has anything like this?

    I've noticed in v10 that the text box no longer has the 'date picker' function that I was using.

    I get the error 'Calendar not defined' when I try to choose the calendar control type so I've spent an hour trying to figure out the workaround for the date picker that was just a Click.

    I don't think a5w pages work with flash.

    Flash works fine in A5W pages, you have to add SWF to the list of always allowed file types in web security. That Flash Calendar from USMaps would work great, a bit pricey though and you would have to create the XML file from your Alpha table. I have a similar FLASH element in my website, but is used to show News articles.

    If the date picker is not working you probably need to republish and ensure you get everything in the CSS folder.

    I was mapping the field incorrectly. All fixed now.

    I'm still having issues with the Calendar error though. Is there some pertinent documentation on that? I couldn't find the particular error in the help section.
