    Default Web2Cal problem

    I have been using the Web2Cal add on just find so far but when I try to add additional fields and then bind them, the new fields do not retain the data that was typed in. I have added the fields into my sql data base so that is not the problem. What I'm I doing wrong?

    Thank you for your time in this matter.

    Did you map them back in the calendar component ? And if so did you create a new dialog after adding the new fields or did you try and add them manually to your dialog?

    Yes I mapped them back to the calendar component. If I re-create the dialog after adding a new field it wipes out all of the formatting and I have to start all over again. I do not know any way around that. It is not an option, it would take too long. Do you find when you re-create the dialog it wipe out all the formatting?

    It will, but what you can probably do is create a copy of your original file. Then go and look at the new file and compare all the event coding to see the difference between yours and the new one. Then modify yours to work.

    That is not an option for me. Way too much work went into it.

    Problem is, I will always need to add fields. In my line of work, things change all the time and I have to add fields every month or so. I tried to add a bunch of blank ones with names like field1, field2 but I used all of them up.

    Please watch the videos

    The videos discuss the difference between adding the new fields BEFORE you auto-generate the Dialog component that is used to edit the events, and AFTER you have auto-generated the Dialog component.

    Obviously, if you have auto-generated the Dialog that will be used to edit events, and have made extensive customization to it, you would not want to re-generate it. This video discusses how this is easily done.
