A LinesWidget-like for Plone, used for selecting dates
Provides an Archetypes widget that allows to add and remove dates using the fancy jquery.ui.datepicker plugin
Table of contents
The widget stores the information in to a LinesField archetype field. To use it just add a field like this in your archetype schema:
from Products.Archetypes.atapi import LinesField from rt.calendarinandout.widget import CalendarInAndOutWidget LinesField( 'dates', widget = CalendarInAndOutWidget( label=u"Dates", description=u"Enter the dates in the form yyyy-mm-dd.", ), )
Then you can start enjoyng this widget!
You can use following additional widget options:
- Instead of showing an “add date” button/icon, automatically add the date when selected on the calendar. Default is true.
- Allow the selection of the same date more and more times. Default is false.
The widget when no date is selected
Data can be entered manually or clicking. If you click the calendar a nice datepicker will popup
Clicking the plus the date will be added to the selected values, the red cross will remove the date
You can also set the auto_add option for not displaying any “plus” icon, and add the date to the list when a date is selected.
Add and remove all the dates you want
In view the dates are rendered as an unordered list
You can easily include rt.calendarinandout in your buildout by adding it in both in the eggs and zcml sections:
eggs=... rt.calendarinandout ...
After then, re-run your buildout, restart your instance and activate the rt.calendarinandout add-on.
