Hi Folks,

Anyone know of a good calendar component? Not just date picker but a large calendar like you'd see in PIM such as outlook?

I've seen CCalendar from AspenCloud (http://calypsorcp.sourceforge.net/screenshots.php#caly) but they describe this as proof of concept.

swt-calendar seems to have disappeared completly?


Any other's people are using?

Cheers ears,

SWT has a new DateTime control as of version 3.3, which you can use with
the SWT.CALENDAR style. Or check out the Nebula project, which has
several calendar widgets:

Thanks, so does the SWT component with SWT.CALENDAR style mean it can be quiet large (not just a picker)? I'm aiming to associate things with a day to get a diary thing going.

Cheers

The SWT widgets page has a screenshot that should give you an idea:
http://www.eclipse.org/swt/widgets/

4 rows down, in the right-hand column.

Hi,

if you are going for some outlook like look you can check out
http://xpmp.de/jaretcalendar.html. This is based on the jaret timebars
(gantt) using them as a vertical gantt.

Hi Tom,

thanks! Sorry, no chance this gets added to Nebula since it is GPLed
(with a linking exception making it compatible with other licenses like
EPL as long as the using projects are free and public) and I sell
licenses for commercial use.

It would not be compatible with Nebula anyway since Nebula is restricted
to Java 1.4 and widgets that are coded more along SWT coding style.

Hi,

Is there any news on this? Maybe someone started a new project?
Toby, what did you use eventually?

I'm working on an Eclipse RCP based ERP system in which we would like to use a calendar widget for allocating resources. (e.g., planning/registration of employee working hours) I like the Jaret Calendar, however, it does not seem to be mature enough for our purposes.

On my search I found another (commercial) project, apart from the ones you've mentioned above: http://migcalendar.com
It seems to be mature enough for our purposes, but unfortunately it is a Swing based library.

Although in a pilot we did successfully integrate the MIG Swing component in SWT, (thanks to http://www.eclipse.org/articles/Article-Swing-SWT-Integratio n) we'd rather use a (non-commercial) SWT widget for this.

Peter
