Scaling the Calendar

  Asked By: Felicia    Date: Jan 03    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 5119

We want to put 3 calendars on the screen at the same time in different
web parts. Sort of like what Outlook can do.

How can we scale the calendar?

Please define "scale" the calendar.

Do you mean set a size?

The web part configuration should permit that.

Answer #2    Answered By: Adrienne Greene     Answered On: Jan 03

Yes, the size of the calendar. My customer wants it to be much
smaller, and wants to put  3 calendars  on the same page so he can
track different events.

I think the webpart will let you adjust width and highth, but when it
does, if the size is smaller then it puts H and V sliters to scrole
the calendar, which the customer does not want. make it smaller,
just like Outlook does.

I'm not sure that this is so much a SharePoint question specifically
as it is more a theme or HTML/XML question. You might (and I stress
"might") be able to accomplish this by opening the page in SharePoint
Designer and looking at the code used in the theme CSS file itself.

HTML as a language doesn't know what "scale" means - it defines
regions and properties for those regions (which is what a calendar  is
- a region, defined by the <div> tag or some equivalent). Scaling
works fine with images, but that's primarily because the client
handles the scaling  based on the width/height dimensions. My guess -
though I haven't looked at it - is that the CSS in the theme probably
has a declaration somewhere that's associated with that web part or
its container and looks like:

min-width: 200px;
min-height: 500px;

I've been doing theme customization work, but I haven't explicitly
looked at how it defines the minimum size of certain web parts.

You may be right. I am a great Front Page user, but have not
downloaded Designer yet.

I need to make this thing work the way you can do in Outlook. I'm
surprised Microsoft did not make the calendar  function the same on
both of their products. But in any event, I think it can be done
with some fiddling. Any more ideas come to mind please let me know.

I'll do the same for this group in case there is others who might
want to make multiple calendars  on one page like Outlook.

Well, that throws out my next suggestion which was custom Web part zones
that were smaller but that would just add scroll bars as well.

Even the "view" configurations does not offer options to reduce the
individual day sizes.

Answer #6    Answered By: Trisha Wheeler     Answered On: Jan 03

Yes we do mean size. When we
set the size to the appropriate level we get scroll bars instead of
the web part actually scaling. We were trying to find out if anyone
knew how to scale  the item instead of just change it's viewing size
and adding scroll bars.

The result of this would look just like outlook's multi calender
view. In that view the calender scales to any size rather than just
adding scroll bars.

Custom calendars:

Perhaps one of these would do the trick (for a small fee, of course)?

If they can do it, you can too. (given time  and money).
