Book Update: interaction with datepicker and event filtering

I have published a new version of the book:

1. New chapter showing how to use external widgets to manipulate a calendar instance: datepicker for navigating and checkbox for filtering.

2. Added code in the database persistence samples to save updates when resizing or dragging events.

3. Fixed bugs in code samples from the database persistence chapter. Also updated Web2py sample project with those fixes.

Buyers from previous versions will get these updates for free.  Interested developers can get their own copy and future updates will be free.

Thank you all for your support!

Next: fullCalendar Database persistence

I am halfway through the chapter about persisting fullCalendar’s events in a database. Topics include:

  1. Saving events
  2. Loading events from database
  3. Modifying events
  4. Deleting events

The examples will be based on the jQuery Dialogs version of the tutorials.

The server side code cannot be very specific because there are many ways to implement the CRUD interface depending on the libraries or frameworks you use, but I will include some sample code in Python to give you an idea.

The price of the book will increase when this chapter is done.  However, current buyers will get the updates for free.  Now is the time to get the book at the current price .

 

 

Book update: Managing events with jQuery dialogs

Added a chapter on how to use jQuery dialogs to create, modify and remove events from the calendar.  The source package includes jQueryUI and its CSS so the samples can run out of the box.

Some  screenshots:

This upgrade is free if you already purchased the book.  If not, learn more about it and decide if it will be useful to you.

After the next chapter the price will change to $9.99 ($2 increase).  Take advantage of the early adopters price.
