creating event..

I'm using this excellent porting of fullcalendar in a project. It happened to me to have a wrong placement of the event after its creation. Whether creating a full-day event or not it would display the event in the full-day box. When refreshing the page the event will eventually fit its position in the week/daily agenda.

So I modified cal/components/fulcal/eventCal.js and after every

$("#EventCal").fullCalendar( 'updateEvent', tempEvent);

I added


as to refetch events and refresh the component. My two cents D

I downloaded and unzipped the cal-controller-1.0 and cal_1.1 files into my protected folder. Now I'm getting this error message and have yet to see anything resembling a calendar on my page:

CDbCommand failed to execute the SQL statement: SQLSTATE[42S22]: Column not found: 1054 Unknown column 'admin' in 'where clause'. The SQL statement executed was: SELECT * FROM events_helper t WHERE user_id=admin

To clarify, I have no experience with frame works and their extensions, so technically oriented solutions will have to be well worded.

this is great

but.. why isnt there any sample code for how to call the module other than going to index.php?r=cal , isnt there a way to just call to place the module anywhere? like most other components work

Bug / Incompatibility with newer JQuery

If you're going to use the cal extension v1.1 with JQuery 1.6+ there's a bug on cal/components/fullCal/eventCal.js related to checkboxes.

In JQuery 1.6+ the checkbox parameters are set using this syntax:

$(".myCheckbox").prop("checked", true);

but the file uses the older:


so in this file you must change all




A ctrl+f / crtl+h and replace all will do the job.

This solves:

  • Undefined index: allDay (/var/www/caltest/protected/modules/cal/controllers/MainController.php:84
  • New events were created as all day events even if the user specified them as not all day.
  • New events were created as being not editable even if the checkbox was not checked.

Hope this will help others.

delete button

i did notice that, but i thought it was not really user friendly... it's not really intuitive and it takes more time to edit the event then to press a button :D

delete button

Delete button is not need here. Simple modify your event and save it without any text. Empty events will delete from DB.

a little addition

i downloaded this and just love it, but there was no delete button on the event.

i added the button, integrated the new function in the eventcal.js file and added a new delete action to the controller.

if you want to i can send you the changed files ^^

Thanks Gustavo of the forum, I found out how-to.

it depends of your url rules: if you use path then http://localhost/cal, if you use index.php in the name http://localhost/index.php/cal if you dont use path http://localhost/?r=cal

Can you provide some more info how to install and kick-start this module.

I followed all the above steps but without any success.

  1. I created a webapp (ex testdrive) and installed the module in testdrive/modules/cal/
  2. Add in config/main.php
  3. Check & set user privileges in modules/cal/components/ChangeUser.php

What's next? How do I surf to my the calendar pages?

js problem

It looks like a nice extension of the "artshaw's fullcalendar" but I'm experiencing some troubles with the jquery libraries: On event inserting while using the ui-dialog pop up: - 'OK' and 'Cancel' buttons showing '0' and '1' instead - by clicking one of these buttons, a javascript error raise: "h.apply is not a function" in jquery-ui.min.js line 337.

I'm using YII 1.1.4 and the script libraries are loaded in that order: jquery, jquery-ui.min, fullcalendar.min, eventCal.

Have I to upgrade to Yii 1.1.5 ???
