Joget DX 8 Stable Released
The stable release for Joget DX 8 is now available, with a focus on UX and Governance.
The Calendar Menu displays records from your preferred datalist as calendar events, in formats of day/week/month in your app's userview.
To know more about Calendar Menu, do check out the sample apps here.
Figure 1: Calendar Menu Properties
|id||Menu element unique id. Userview will use this id in the URL for the menu if the Custom ID is empty.|
Item link slug. Optional field.
Ensure that value defined here is unique to other userview menus in the app, since the first matching/conflicting ID will take precedence in page loading.
|Label||The userview menu label.|
|Page Title||Calendar page title.|
See list of available Datalist Binders, to source the data for calendar entries.
|Auto Handle Date Range|
Enable this option to automatically handle range of calendar events to be populated into the calendar, based on event dates and calendar view format.
If this option is disabled, you need to manually handle date range via #requestParam.start# and #requestParam.end# request parameter hash variables in your datalist binder configuration.
Date format for date range is yyyy-MM-dd.
