    Monthly Calendar - Easy to use your data



    Code:
    CalendarMonthView-davegri-v01.zip
    Inspired by: https://bytes.com/topic/access/insig...endar-overview


    Attached is an example of a monthly calendar database. The VBA contains many comments on the implementation scheme and code notes. It shouldn't be very difficult to modify things to display your data. I've included a table and form for calendar settings that allow customization of the calendar colors as well.

    That's a really nice and simple (considering the possible complexities) interface for a calendar.

    I had to laugh when I saw you posted this. Ever since we both responded in this thread https://www.accessforums.net/showthread.php?t=84154 , I've been tweaking the code on my calendars.
    Consolidated a few procedures, eliminated others. The goal is trying to make it as simple as possible for others to customize but as minty points out there are so many complexities it's certainly a challenge.
    In any event it's a fun exercise to pass the time. I'll apologize now for any of your ideas I steal.

    Yes, it's hard to be original with such a common and needed application. As noted, mine is certainly not original at its roots.

    I have another version of this calendar that automatically resizes itself depending on the Access window screen size (or optionally a user specified size). The resizing code redraws and repositions all the text boxes and other objects. I didn't post that one because I consider it too unstable. If anything goes wrong during the screen re-creation, it is by definition (and reality) a corrupt database, and requires some tiresome procedures to recover. That's too much of a burden for anyone to tolerate.

    Dave,
    I told ya I was gonna steal some of your ideas.

    I was thinking about adding the holidays but didnt want to bother with a having to maintain another table.
    In my calendars I use a dictionary object for the event dates. I've found this makes for an easy way to add the event text to the date boxes rather that using an array.

    I extended that idea to using a dictionary object for the holidays rather than tables. I can even take into consideration whether a holiday that falls on a weekend being observed on a friday or monday.

    Here's a stripped down example without any events, just the holidays. Just scroll up and down through the months. There's only a handful of holidays listed but I'll be adding more in time.

    That's pretty neat. It's all tradeoffs. If a new holiday is declared or changed, or a holiday differs from state to state, the table is the easiest way for the user to manage, without resorting to code changes.

    Many are "the 3rd monday in February" or "last Monday Of Sept." type holidays and I doubt July 4th, Christmas or New Years are ever gonna change.
    I like that they're dynamic. They're fairly easy to code, so changes, if they ever happen, should be relatively easy to make but I get what you're saying.

    In case its useful, see my article Easter Calculator - Mendip Data Systems which is used as part of the code in my own monthly/weekly/daily calendar app

    Its a very neat solution - based on Chip Pearson's Excel code with minor modifications for Access

    Very nice. Wrote one off sub to loop on 2017 to 2030 to add Easter dates to tblHolidaysUSA in post#6, this thread.

    Anybody else who wants the update:

    Code:
    Public Function fcnGetEasterSunday(Yr As Integer) As Date
        'Code taken from http://www.cpearson.com/excel/Easter.aspx
        Dim D As Integer
        D = (((255 - 11 * (Yr Mod 19)) - 21) Mod 30) + 21
        fcnGetEasterSunday = DateSerial(Yr, 3, 1) + D + (D > 48) + 6 - ((Yr + Yr \ 4 + D + (D > 48) + 1) Mod 7)
    End Function
    
    
    Public Sub InsertEaster_tblHolidays()
        Dim x As Integer
        Dim sSQL As String
        For x = 2017 To 2030
            sSQL = "Insert into tblHolidaysUSA (DayofWeek, HolDate, HolidayName) Values(" _
            & "'Sunday', #" & fcnGetEasterSunday(x) & "#, " & "'Easter'" & ")"
            Debug.Print sSQL
            CurrentDb.Execute sSQL, dbFailOnError
        Next
    End Sub
    Put in a module and call from the immediate window. Run it only once!
