Calendar Events

Calendar widget has the following events associated with it:


doLayout Event


This event is invoked for every widget when the widget position and dimensions are computed.

Syntax


doLayout()

Read/Write

Read + Write

Remarks

This event is invoked for all the widgets placed inside flex containers. This event is invoked in the order in which the widgets are added to the widget hierarchy and expect the frame property of the widget is calculated and available for use within this event.

This event is used to set the layout properties of child widgets in the relation to self and peer widgets whose layout is not yet performed.

The number of times this event invoked may vary per platform. It is not recommended to write business logic assuming that this function is invoked only once when there is a change in positional or dimensional properties. This event will not trigger when transformations are applied though widget is moved or scaled or rotated from its original location.

Example


//Sample code to set doLayout event callback to a button widget.
/*This code changes the top property of button2 and makes it appear below button1.*/
myForm.button1.doLayout=doLayoutButton1;


function doLayoutButton1(){

    myForm.button2.top = myForm.button1.frame.height;
}

Platform Availability

  • iOS
  • Android
  • Windows

onAppointmentTap Event


This event is triggered when you tap any of the existing appointments in the following view types:

  • CALENDAR_VIEW_TYPE_DAY_VIEW
  • CALENDAR_VIEW_TYPE_WEEK_VIEW
  • CALENDAR_VIEW_TYPE_MONTH_VIEW

onAppointmentTap()

Remarks

The details of the appointment tapped is returned with a unique id in the callback.

{  
  "uniqueid":"fc309",

onDone Event


This event is triggered when the Done or Enter button is clicked or tapped after the calendar opens.

Syntax


onDone()

Read/Write

Read + Write

Remarks

  • In Desktop Web platform, this event is fired when the enter key is pressed when the Calendar widget is in focus.
  • In iOS platform, the Done button is available only when the value of the inputAccessoryViewType property is CALENDAR_INPUTACCESSORYVIEW_NEXTPREV. So in iOS platform, the onDone event is fired only when the value of inputAccessoryViewType property is CALENDAR_INPUTACCESSORYVIEW_NEXTPREV.

Example


//Sample code to set the onDone event callback to a Calendar widget.

frmCalendar.myCalendar.onDone=onDoneCallback;

function onDoneCallback(calendarWdg){
      //Write your logic here.
}

Availability

  • Available in the IDE
  • iOS, Desktop Web, and SPA

onEmptyCellTap Event


This event is triggered when you tap on any of the empty cells of the calendar day view.

Syntax


onEmptyCellTap()

Remarks

This event is applicable only when the viewType is set to CALENDAR_VIEW_TYPE_DAY_VIEW. The arguments holds the value for the date time details of the empty cell being tapped in the following format "dd-MM-yyyy HH:mm". For example, 13-10-2014 10:20.

Example


//Sample code to set onEmptyCellTap event callback to Calendar widget.

frmCalendar.myCalendar.onEmptyCellTap=onEmptyCellTapCallBck;

function onEmptyCellTapCallBck(calendar){

   //Write your code here.
}

Availability

  • Available on Windows

onScrollWidgetPosition Event


This event callback is invoked by the platform when the widget location position gets changed on scrolling. The onScrollWidgetPosition event returns the positional coordinates of the widget's location with respect to the screen (screenX and screenY) and the parent container (frameX and frameY). This event is invoked asynchronously, and is not available for FlexForm widget.

Syntax


onScrollWidgetPosition()

Read/Write

Read + Write

Example


var LabelWdg = new voltmx.ui.Label(basicConf, layoutConf, pspConf);
form.add(LabelWdg);
LabelWdg.onScrollWidgetPosition = onScrollWidgetPositionCallBack;

function onScrollWidgetPositionCallBack(wdg, screenX, screenY, frameX, frameY) { //wdg : Widget that is registered for onScrollWidgetPosition.
    /*screenX : Position of widget with respect to 
the screen's X - coordinates (after downsizing the navigation bar and status bar).*/
    /*screenY : Position of widget with respect to the screen's Y - 
coordinates (after downsizing the navigation bar and status bar).*/
    //frameX : Position of widget with respect to parent container's X- coordinates.
    //frameY : Position of widget with respect to parent container's Y- coordinates.
}

Platform Availability

onSelection Event


This event is triggered when an item is selected or deselected.

Syntax


onSelection()

Read/Write

  • Available on all platforms

onTouchEnd Event


An event callback is invoked by the platform when the user touch is released from the touch surface.

Syntax


onTouchEnd ()

Optional Parameters

source

Handle to the widget reference on which the user touch has ended.

x

Specifies the x-coordinate with in the widget with respect to widget's co-ordinate system. It is a number indicating device independent pixel.

y
