Can this be used as a timetable?

Asked by Anonymous

I have data in my database e.g: ID StartDate EndDate Item 1 Monday 12:00 Monday 14:00 Project Management 2 Tuesday 8:00 Tuesday 10:00 Maths I've been looking over the documentation, and it seems to me that this is possible, I just can't work out how best to go about it. Any suggestions?

Sorry, I just read over my post and it doesn't reflect anything I was trying to say. At present, Im showing a week e.g. Sunday to Saturday. In my database I have the records stored as a day and a time because it is a set weekly thing. I need to convert the Monday into a date that DayPilot can use.

Yes, it can be used to show a timetable. You only need to transform your day value to a certain date.

The easiest way would be to pick a year which starts on the same day of the week. That's the case of 2012 (for weeks starting on Sunday). So you can store Sunday as 2012-01-01, Monday as 2012-01-02 etc.

You can also store days of week as integers and transform them to dates using your SELECT command.

In the Calendar, set HeaderDateFormat="dddd" to show just the name of the day in the header. Use BeforeEventRender to override the default event HTML if needed.

Oh sorry, the BeforeEventRender part only applies to the Pro edition.
