I’m seeking advice on whether anyone can recommend a PB object that emulates MS Outlook’s calendar.

I develop a client-server application used by law enforcement where date/time events play an important part.  Such events are now displayed in the application in a freeform datawindow relevant to a specific event, in a chronological grid presentation for all listed events, or in a graph time-line.

To put time/dates in further perspective for the Users in a more familiar context, I’d like to draw on the SQL Server DB event table and display all events in a calendar presentation similar to Outlook, where there are navigation month-calendars on the left of the screen, and a larger month or day display options where events for each day are chronologically listed.

I would like to use a PB object because, frankly, being a self-taught programmer, I do not have programming skills outside PB.  I would like to understand how the object works, and modify it if necessary.

That said, I do contractually engage a very skilled and competent programmer when there’s a need to factor in third-party software if that is the better option in this case.  

I do not want to complicate things for clients by having them to, say, open a Google account to use Google’s calendar.     

Any advice would be welcomed.

Hi William,

We use the Codejock calendar ActiveX component in some of our solutions.  It is very flexible and quite an easy object to integrate.  A basic knowledge of Visual Basic made it easy for us to implement in Powerbuilder.  Their documentation is also very good.

Michael
