A widget to replace the default date selector in Plone

Project description


The PopupCalendarWidget is meant to replace the default calendar widget with a javascript popup calendar based on The DHTML Calendar that is included with Plone.


You can set up the popup calendar using these options in your widget:


date format that will be stored in the input field. The default value is localLongTimeFormat from site_properties.

default: ‘%Y-%m-%d %H:%M’


if true the calendar will include a time selector

default: ‘true’


the time format can be “12” or “24”

default: ‘24’


if it’s true the calendar will display week numbers

default: ‘false’


numeric: 0 to 6. “0” means display Sunday first, “1” means display Monday first, etc.

default: ‘0’


range of years in an array, ex. [1999,2010]. The default value is derived from site_properties calendar_starting_year and calendar_starting_year + calendar_future_years_available.

default (in the year 2007): [1999, 2012]


whether the calendar is in single click mode or not

default: ‘true’


if true (default) then given fields/date areas are updated for each move otherwise they’re updated only on close

default: ‘true’


configures the step of the years in drop-down boxes

default: ‘1’


if “true” it will show days from other months too

default: ‘false’


select an icon for the edit page popup button

default: ‘popup-calendar.gif’


the css used to render the calendar. some of the other stock css are calendar-green.css, calendar-blue.css, calendar-brown.css

default: ‘jscalendar/calendar-system.css’

1.0.6 - 2009-04-30

  • Minor bug fixes to Now if the date cannot be converted, returns original value. If cannot be formatted, returns date formatted as “mm/dd/yyyy”

1.0.3 - 2007-08-17

  • Changed the helper_css for the widget to be a tuple as this is what is expected. This was causing some strange style issues in Safari and IE since the string was getting split up and creating erroneous style sheets

1.0.2 - 2007-06-21

  • Made the date range and ifFormat configurable via the widget. See the README for details.

  • Not installing the demo type by default anymore. Set the DEMO_TYPE variable in the to True to use it.

1.0.1 - 2006-04-09

  • Minor bug fix to the edit macro. There was a missing $ for the call to the portal_url variable. Thanks to Jim Baack for the fix.

1.0 - 2006-03-23

  • initial import into the Plone Software Center
