DRK 2 : Advanced Calendar and Color Picker Example

I have put up a simple example using the Advanced Calendar and Color Picker components. The components are part of the Flash UI Component Set 54which is available of volume 2 of the Developer Resource Kit.
You can view the example here.
I will try and get some additional examples up soon.

    I took a look at the sample documentation for the Adv. calendar component and it refers to a sample .fla file “Advanced Calendar Example.fla”. I’ve looked on the DRK 2 CD and on the MM site and couldn’t find it. Any ideas?

  6. Bill Perry says:

    … nevermind… found it on the CD….

    Can the calendar component be integrated to a MySQL database using PHP?

  8. mike chambers says:

    Yes. very easily. Just load the data from PHP, put it into the correct format and pass it to the calendar component.hope that helps…mike chambersmesh@macromedia.com

    Hi,I’ve got a specific question for you. I’ve got a blog-type flash remoting app all set up and dropped the advanced calendar in it. All I wanna do is pass the date into the function that is called to show the blogs for that date (a cfc is called to run a date-criteria query), but I can’t find the param that represents the date. Do I have to set up a data provider for this?Thanks in advance for any assistance.Sincerely,Andrew

    Hi Mike,I just want to warn you of an upcoming cross-post – I just found MM’s DRK forum and will probably post the same question there that I posted here. Sorry :)Sincerely,Andrew

    I am using the calendar component and noticed that if you click on a date and then click on it again it deselects this date. For what I am doing I do not want this to happen. If you click on the same date you have selected, I want it to stay selected. Where in the calendar component code can I fix this? I have printed it all out and I can’t seem to figure out where to do this.Any help is appreciated.Thanks,Lorri

    You didnt answer the first question, about the actionscript for the example… The documentation (as usual) doesnt help.. Looks old.
