I am using the calendar field for week plans. I think, the following changes would make the calendar field more usefull:
At our office work appointments start at 08:30 and end at 17:30. The current calendar has a fixed start (07:00 )and end time (19:00) which means there is a lot of white space on the screen. This could be improved with:
1: A property for the start time of the calendar.
2: A property for the end time of the calendar.
Then next to this, we do not make appointments outside these office opening ours. So we could do without the rows 'sooner' and 'later' that are there for appointments outside the 'normal' ours.
3: A boolean property field (or tow) for showing or hiding the overflow rows.
Below the calendar there is an option field (day, workweek, week, month) we only need the workweek view.
4: A boolean property field for showing or hiding the option buttons
I experimented with the changes above and these changes can be done with rather simple code changes (for Swing and RCP client).
Then our minimum appointment time is 10 minutes. The space reserved for an appointment of 10 minutes is so small that you cannot read the text.
5: A property for the minimum row height ( = 1 hour).
For now I have only experimented with the minimum height for an appointment. This is easy to do and good enough for our solution yet, but not good enough for small screens or calendars that need more rows. The problem with this is that the calendar might get bigger then the screen and you need to add scrolling, which is harder to do.
Maybe there are more or better ideas for improvements.
