    Calendar 2.0 [Beta]

    I am making on new version of Calendar.
    For now it is still in Beta stage, so your help is appreciated.

    The new version will allow more control over notes. Now you can delete note, you can have it read (text-to-speach), and you can set reminder.
    These are main new functions.

    The skin for first (calendar) screen is redone.
    This is how it looks:


    There is only Night skin for now. I will make day skin when the structure will be finished. The language is only English for now.

    In notes section the last row of buttons is not active. I wonder wheather I should loose double click for reading note and add a button to do that.

    The usable buttons are: CLOSE, up/down, and add and remove.
    If you double click on note it will be read (text-to-speech).
    When you add note:
    • first press add ( + )
    • than enter note
    • if you want to add reminder press yes otherwise no (and you are done)
    • if you pressed yes: you must delete hh:mm and enter time when reminder should pop up on that day in format hh:mm. !It is important to use this format hh:mm (24h)!
    • that should be it

    Notes with reminder have a clock next to it.

    Calendar 2.0 Beta2 is available to download here.
    It is not installer so you must extract folder Calendar to CF_install_dir\Plugins


    Please test and give feedback.

    Could someone from USA (or with USA preferences) play around with reminder and report if it works or not (USA uses different date than EU).

    Hey Stric!

    Some thoughts...
    • If I enter a reminder time, the note doesn't show up on the list.

    • If I don't enter a reminder time, then an entry goes into the list, but nothing shows up in the big box on the main screen.

    • If I enter text next to the time in the NOTEs box, then it won't show up on the list until I exit the list back to the main screen then come back in.

    • If I double click on a list entry to hear the entry be read, then after the reading it goes back to the main screen. I'm thinking it should stay on the list screen.

    • The reminder time entry is clumsy and a bit confusing. You're only looking for a time entry here, right? What about using a smaller version of what David's using to set the time in CF? Basically show a screen with the current time in HH:MM, then up/down arrows under it for the user to scroll the time?

      OR! A single screen with the event time, reminder time and notes entry all at once. I think you can do it without it looking too crowded. It would avoid the confusion of having to enter times by hand, and where text can go and where it can't.

    • The date format shown on the reminder list isn't tracking with the regional settings. For example, Calendar is using DD.MM.YYYY, but I have MM/DD/YYYY defined in Windows.

    • When you pop up your modal dialog for the reminder, it'll pop up behind CF if I'm in an external application when the reminder comes up.


    Thanks for the continued work!

    In the upcoming release you will be able to call the DateTime dialog that is called from clicking the time in the top right and use it to get new dates, but not have it actually change the system time...

    basically a new DateTime dialog for getting dates for use with plugins....

    great work, coming along...

    starting to get more and more data stored... eventually we can have it sync with exchange server, or home desktop

    Hmm so if you add reminder the note is not listed?
  5. If I don't enter a reminder time, then an entry goes into the list, but nothing shows up in the big box on the main screen.
Which big box on the screen? You must use night skin that is included and shown in first post here.

  • If I enter text next to the time in the NOTEs box, then it won't show up on the list until I exit the list back to the main screen then come back in.
  • Could you explain more.

    The first OSK dialog shows current time and you can enter note next to it or delete it and than enter note. It is just the same as it is in current 1.0 version that show time when you enterd note. (User will be able to remove this time in settings. All the code is there just have to code the settings).

    Than if you select to enter reminder you get new OSK dialog that shows hh:mm. You must delete this and enter time for reminder in that form. (for example: If you want reminder at 1:20 AM you enter 01:30).


  • If I double click on a list entry to hear the entry be read, then after the reading it goes back to the main screen. I'm thinking it should stay on the list screen.
  • OK, this is done.

  • The reminder time entry is clumsy and a bit confusing. You're only looking for a time entry here, right? What about using a smaller version of what David's using to set the time in CF?

  • David replay to this so... this is simple temporary solution until new version of CF is available.

  • The date format shown on the reminder list isn't tracking with the regional settings. For example, Calendar is using DD.MM.YYYY, but I have MM/DD/YYYY defined in Windows.
  • Huh sorry, I allready changed this and for me it works.

  • When you pop up your modal dialog for the reminder, it'll pop up behind CF if I'm in an external application when the reminder comes up.
  • I do not thik I can do much here. Maybe David could tell or look into it.

    Thanks for the continued work!

    Coucouillu thanks for this I will let you know if I change anything (I hope I wont forget...)
    Language is the same as in main CF... right now you must manually put to TRUE FIRSTSTART or something like this in config.xml...
    It will work once I made installer.

    If you place French.xml in the language folder, then go to the main Centrafuse and change back to English, save it, then change it back to French it should update the plugin...

    unless stric programmed his plugin to check the main application language on load and change itself, or check every load...

    I added this to all the plugins, so it will be in the examples in the new SDK once I release the upcoming version...
