First of all... great work on this component. I saw it on CodeProject a few years back and really wanted to use it but at the time it didn't have drag & drop and resize. Now of course it does and you've done an amazing job getting it where it is now! :)
I'm evaluating the Day Pilot Pro and really only going to use the "MonthView" at this stage. I want to use DayPilot for it's ability to manipulate recurrent events. Our application is for a Digital Signage system. We allow users to select one thing to play for a particular day, so we only want to have one event per day. In other words each event will only ever run from 00:00 -> '24:00'. All that is fine and working properly thanks.
What happens now is each sign will contact the server with it's current date and ask "What event should I play today?". I can see with a non-recurrent event I can do a simple sql query on 'eventstart' and 'eventend'. But when I get into recurrent events (using your special varchar field)... how will I query it?
The call from the signs is answered by a web service, so I figured I'd do a database query and return the event id. But is this possible? Or should I really be loading the MonthView (or other) class up and get it to parse the database and return the result?
Many thanks for your time and well done again on the DayPilot!
