Note this will download as a .ZIP file. Just rename extension back to .dxpack .

I need people who are willing to test this out, make some appts, etc, and basically test all aspects. Please let me know how interface for creating new appointments works for you.

Just click a date, it should pop a appointment window, select the type you want, and test it out. It will show the text string it had built in order to include it into file. Of course, it doesn't actually write to a file, since it isn't complete yet.

Basically, I want to know how you feel on interface design. Also test color and file location settings by clicking color drop icon.

Thanks in advance!

On load it automatically creates a new folder based on your settings. You need to change that the an input box or use environment variables to place it with in the current user's desktop folder or perhaps better my documents.

Can't really look at the script as I'm in the middle of creating a 50 plus layer widget.

I would like teh option to use 24H instead of AM/PM.
I like the way the large date moves in relation to the date bar.
Editing the color of todays date also reset the other dates to black (from gray) . . bad looking.

Oops! Maybe I shouldn't use persist for folder setting. I forgot that I always run my account as normal user, so settings like that would have sent me an access denied error.

Yeah? I gonna check into color setting problem. Maybe it didn't set properly.

What about settings for creating an new appointment? Do you guys like how it works? For example if you clicked May 20th, and picked monthly (date type), it would assume you want it to be 20th each month. Or if yearly it would assume May 26th each year.

I'll check into possibility of using 24 hour setting as choice since it handles hours as 24 hours natively, and converts AM/PM from user input into it.

All that, I liked 

In regards to other stuff . . have you ever looked at theiCalendar format  for exchanging data here and there?

That seems to be very interesting but I don't think I will do it, due to complex load/save procures.

Thanks. I'm working on the newer version that uses localstorage so downloaders won't have problems. You guys has been a huge help!

It's now much closer to completion.

The beta download: Prototype download Of course, you download this on your own risk, although I'm pretty sure my code will not damage your computer or anything. Rename it back to .dxpack since it will be renamed to .zip file.

Basically the only things missing is coloring of dates with appointments, reminding, and list of day's appointments. It now actually writes to a file, and will ask you when setting is not set (and shouldn't since it uses localsettings now! ) It now won't pop a message box displaying the data you had created, but you can see the object text, and it should add the new appointment to it.

I'm still not sure how to do reminding part, but I do need people to test the current beta version to see if it works properly and to see how well it works.

Oh yes, if you click the color drop, you will see a surprise. It sure gives one much possibilities on looks.

Please let me know on those:
How you like the forms design (I'm pretty limited on design, so I tried my best.)
When there are a problem such as script errors, oddities, etc.

#EDIT Oh yes, I have added 24 hours option so you can use it when you doesn't like AM/PM settings.

Any problems or comments on the newest beta?
on Mar 24, 2007
soon...
on Mar 24, 2007
tried to load the latest:

Type mismatch: '[string: ""]'
Line: 360
Code:
(not available)

its the AM/PM settings.. needs a default in there!!
on Mar 24, 2007
Oops!

If Object.LocalStorage("AMPM") = "" Then Object.LocalStorage("AMPM") = 1

Paste this below line 60 in HVApptManager object script.

I plan to work on code that colors dates when its needed soon. Reminder part will be last part to be added, since I'm still thinking on how to make it work.

No problems.. its always hard when you have everything running on your system and things get added, but when you go to another persons system things are missing, fonts, dll's etc can always mess you up.
on Mar 25, 2007
Yeah. I remember when I had a dll problem with my own object that suddenly went away for no reason. Now since this uses DesktopX own forms it should cause less problems.

Anyway hows it working out for you?


Hmm I just noticed... The default no photo picture is below my own icon, with just "no photo" peeking below my picture. Weird...
