    Also, is it syncing what entered from RR to Google now?

    Ok, did some more skinning of the Calendar, and a bit of testing.

    A few things found during testing so far:
    (I am NOT trying to give you a list of things to do, but as this is released as beta, am just mentioning things that I have found so far is all )


    • If the end time, is earlier then the begin time, a msgbox from Google pops up stating bad request (Did this on accident with the military time stuff hehe)
    • When I set the <HourFormat>False</HourFormat> to either true or false, the time is still always in 24hour format, as you can see in the screen caps below.
    • The "RRCALENDAR_HOURSDOWN" & "RRCALENDAR_HOURSUP" are reversed. I can easily just swap the button locations, but thought I would pass on the findings.
    • The Month & Day labels should be dynamic right? This way they will indicate either Month Day Year or Day, Month Year above the entry fields.
    • When the standard time, -vs- Military time are corrected, another label to indicate AM/PM should be created, and it could be placed next to the Hours:Minutes entry location. (Better yet, small buttons to choose with AM/PM, this way there is only a selection of 1 thru 12 to cycle through for the hours)
    • Shouldnt the "RRCALENDAR_ADDEVENT" & "RRCALENDAR_ADDAPPOINTMENT" have to different skins? The event does not need the start and end time.



    This is really turning out to be a fantastic plugin! The ability to have a single calendar on my PC, CarPC and phone, and all of them always in sync is fantastic!
    -There is not currently a command to force a sync but i'll add it now.
    -Will add a prevention for time incompatibilities
    -Time always has to be entered in 24hr format, the hourformat setting is for how its displayed in the CL
    -Will swap the commands, i thought they were kinda wonky too but i was thinking in terms of how a flip clock flips up/down
    - do you mean for different date formats? The labels above the corresponding boxes should be able to switch based on DATEFORMAT?
    -again, i did the add screen as 24hr only, i spose i can change it to reflect am/pm, but wont that require two skins depending on DATEFORMAT?
    -yea i got kinda lazy with the skinning, i will make add appointment use a different skin.

    and as for requests, i'm kinda looking for requests here. Doing this plugin for CF, then for RR means there's alot less creative stuff behind the scenes because CF is so limited. If you'd like to see anything included please just let me know and i'll try to work with it. I also want some feedback on some stuff missing from the beta that i'm considering:

    -An optional "Todays" reminder popup screen which shows up once per day (not once per rr start) showing a list of all events/appointments for that day?
    -How would you guys like reminders to work? A popup screen? A custom event which you can do anything you want with?
    -CF currently has the ability to speak events/appointments upon clicking a cell, should i add this option to RR?

    On the way out the door to work, running a bit behind this morning..... Anyhow setting a label to be dynamic is easy so one skin is needed:

    Code:
    
    If DATEFORMAT = 0 then
              "SETLABEL;RRCalendar_DatePart1;Day"
              "SETLABEL;RRCalendar_DatePart2;Month"
    Else
         "SETLABEL;RRCalendar_DatePart1;Month"
         "SETLABEL;RRCalendar_DatePart2;Day"
    End If
    Then in the skin the code would dynamic like this:
    L,276,188,79,19,#DFX1R#,#DFX1G#,#DFX1B#,15,#DFXFon t#,"RRCalendar_DatePart1","CENTER",
    L,290,188,79,19,#DFX1R#,#DFX1G#,#DFX1B#,15,#DFXFon t#,"RRCalendar_DatePart2","CENTER",

    Instead of the existing hard coded label:
    L,276,188,79,19,#DFX1R#,#DFX1G#,#DFX1B#,15,#DFXFon t#,"=Month","CENTER",

    Then based on that info, you can set another section to set the "RRCALENDAR_DATEMONTH" & "RRCALENDAR_DATEDAY" to respectively set what was entered to be used for the correct day/month entry.

    Change the variables in the skin that are used to enter them into something like
    :RRCALENDAR_GetDayMonth1 & RRCALENDAR_GetDayMonth2

    Then use something like this to put them into the proper variables for the plugin:

    Code:
    
    If DATEFORMAT = 0 then
         RRCalendar_DATEMONTH = RRCALENDAR_GetDayMonth1
         RRCalendar_DATEDay = RRCALENDAR_GetDayMonth2
    
    Else
         RRCalendar_DATEMONTH = RRCALENDAR_GetDayMonth2
         RRCalendar_DATEDay = RRCALENDAR_GetDayMonth1
    End If
    
    If DateMonth >12 then ErrorTrap()
    The code to do this can be put at the very top of the plugin's code, in the section that is only run once on plugin initialization.



    I will respond to the others when I get home this evening.

    I haven't messed with yet, but as fellow RR's, we are used to having many options to choose from. So, with that said, maybe setting(s) for daily popup(on/off) along with a event that allows skinners to do whatever they can come up with. How about a cmd that would allow us to add an app/event directly without having to go thur the whole process. Thanks...

    Just got an Yahoo IM from Carputer, we are on very different times on either side of the pond. I will respond to his IM here, as it may help others that have not set up a calendar with Google.

    First, you will need to set up a google account, and login. Once you are logged in (Will show your name at the top right of the standard Google.com search page)

    On the top left of the page, choose "More.." and look down the drop down list and choose calendar.

    Now, the next part, I am not too sure of, as I do not want to delete my calendar to go through the steps from the beginning, so I do not know the EXACT steps here. However, on the left there should be "create a new calendar" or something like that. Go ahead and create one, and give it a name. Once you have the calendar name, and can add events on the calendar on Google's site, you are good to go. Go into the settings.xml for RRCal and enter the name of the calendar, and your Google login and password. You should then be good to go.

    I am not certain, but I do not think adding items in RRCal are syncing back to Google in the beta yet. I added something here as a test, and it did not show up. However, you can enter something on the google calendar, restart RR, and when going to the RRCal screen, you should see the item that you added.

    Look back a few posts, and there are instruction on how to set up your smart phone as well. I can enter an appointment on my iPhone, and it automatically shows up in Ride Runner in RRCalendar. VERY handy

    Also, I agree with Blue on the reminder trigger. It should just be a command like RRCalendar_EventTrigger so that it can be used in another plugin, or the exectbl to fire anything the skinner wants it to do. Such as pop-up a menu, speak some text, play a sound file ect ect

    I will check out the date problem. I had someone from Australia helping me with the date conversion for the CF version, but it figures something would go wrong with the CL portion of it.
