How to Display the Angular Event Calendar

Displaying the Angular Event Calendar is a breeze. Simply add the tag to your component template:

Ensure that you import the necessary modules. Here's an example for both DayPilot Pro and DayPilot Lite:

import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
// DayPilot Pro
import { DayPilot } from "daypilot-pro-angular";
// DayPilot Lite
import { DayPilot } from "@daypilot/daypilot-lite-angular";

@NgModule({
  declarations: [ AppComponent ],
  imports: [ BrowserModule, DayPilotModule ],
  providers: [ ],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule { }

Angular Calendar Configuration: Customizing Your Calendar

Take full control of your calendar's configuration by using the [config] attribute. Here's an example:

You can use the config object to specify custom properties and event handlers. Keep in mind that the current change detection implementation requires the object to be serializable using JSON.stringify().

import {Component} from '@angular/core';
// DayPilot Pro
import { DayPilot } from "daypilot-pro-angular";
// DayPilot Lite
import { DayPilot } from "@daypilot/daypilot-lite-angular";

@Component({
  selector: 'angular-calendar-example',
  template: ``
})
export class AppComponent {
  config: DayPilot.CalendarConfig = {
    viewType: "Week",
    startDate: "2022-01-05"
  }
}

Loading Calendar Event Data

To populate your calendar with event data, use the [events] attribute and specify the object that holds the event data. Here's an example:

Just like before, ensure that the object is serializable using JSON.stringify().

import {Component} from '@angular/core';
// DayPilot Pro
import { DayPilot } from "daypilot-pro-angular";
// DayPilot Lite
import { DayPilot } from "@daypilot/daypilot-lite-angular";

@Component({
  selector: 'angular-calendar-example',
  template: ``
})
export class AppComponent {
  config: any = {
    viewType: "Week",
    startDate: "2022-01-05"
  }

  events: [{
    id: 1,
    start: "2022-01-21T10:00:00",
    end: "2022-01-21T14:00:00",
    text: "Event 1"
  }]
}

Event Handlers: Taking Control of Your Calendar

Customize the behavior of your calendar by specifying event handlers using the config object. Here's an example:

import {Component} from '@angular/core';
// DayPilot Pro
import { DayPilot } from "daypilot-pro-angular";
// DayPilot Lite
import { DayPilot } from "@daypilot/daypilot-lite-angular";

@Component({
  selector: 'angular-calendar-example',
  template: ``
})
export class AppComponent {
  config: any = {
    viewType: "Week",
    startDate: "2022-01-05",
    onEventMoved: args => {
      console.log("Event moved");
    }
  }

  events: [{
    id: 1,
    start: "2022-01-21T10:00:00",
    end: "2022-01-21T14:00:00",
    text: "Event 1"
  }]
}

DayPilot.Calendar Object: Harnessing the Full Power

The Angular Calendar component works with two Calendar objects:

  • DayPilotCalendarComponent represents the Angular Component ( tag).
  • DayPilot.Calendar is the underlying plain JavaScript object (DayPilot.Calendar class).

To access the full functionality of the Calendar component, you can use the DayPilot.Calendar object directly. Here's how you can do it:


// Component (TypeScript)
import {Component, ViewChild} from '@angular/core';
// DayPilot Pro
import { DayPilot } from "daypilot-pro-angular";
// DayPilot Lite
import { DayPilot } from "@daypilot/daypilot-lite-angular";

@Component({
  selector: 'angular-calendar-example',
  template: ``
})
export class AppComponent {
  @ViewChild("calendar") calendar!: DayPilotCalendarComponent;
}

The underlying DayPilot.Calendar object can be accessed using the control property:

import {Component, ViewChild} from '@angular/core';
// DayPilot Pro
import { DayPilot } from "daypilot-pro-angular";
// DayPilot Lite
import { DayPilot } from "@daypilot/daypilot-lite-angular";

@Component({
  selector: 'angular-calendar-example',
  template: `
    
    
  `
})
export class AppComponent {
  @ViewChild("calendar") calendar!: DayPilotCalendarComponent;

  message() {
    this.calendar.control.message("Welcome!");
  }
}

With these tools at your disposal, you can take control of your Angular Event Calendar and revolutionize the way you manage your schedule.

So why wait? Embrace the power of the Angular Event Calendar today and experience a new level of organization and productivity!
