DayPilot Pro 4.1

Released on October 4, 2007.

(F48) Drag&drop from an external source (DayPilot Calendar & DayPilot Scheduler)

A new client-side API that supports drag&drop from an external source (from outside of the calendar control).

This feature is useful for implementing the following scenario:

  • Calendar/scheduler showing the current time schedule.
  • Separate list of events that are not yet scheduled. 
  • The unscheduled events can be dragged into the calendar/scheduler.


Step 1: Drag the item from a list of unscheduled events.

 


Step 2: The object is detected as an event when you drag it over the calendar.

(F) Sending custom data back to the client after a CallBack (DayPilot Calendar & DayPilot Scheduler)

It is possible to send a custom data from the CallBack event handler back to the client. This will allow showing custom messages after the event was handled.
