Calendar Tools for .NET is a complete component-solution for creating appointment scheduling solutions similar to Microsoft Outlook with a simple design interface for:
- Setting presentation styles once for all components
- Direct data-management with one data component,
- comprehensive appointment, contact, location and task management,
- appointment scheduling,
- interactive Calendars
- date input
- date selection
The dbiDayView control is an advanced appointment scheduling component with the ability to group appointments based on Date, Contact, Location, and/or Task making it an ideal choice for PIM (personal information management) or scheduling based applications. Appointments are easily created directly in the control by clicking and selecting a time period and keying the appointment text into the control. The dbiDayView control provides a powerful and dynamic collaboration data presentation, capture, and reporting interface.
dbiCalendar is a scrolling ��virtual�� calendar component that presents an enhanced monthly or weekly calendar with a uniquely interactive interface. Unlike many other calendar controls that only display a single month at a time, dbiCalendar displays to the user a developer-defined range (start and end date) of dates along with a scroll bar to move through the calendar. The dbiCalendar control offers the developer extensive control over date cell formatting and the calendar presentation as a whole.
dbiDate is a monthly calendar control capable of presenting one to twelve months simultaneously. The control includes navigation support to allow the user to move between all months specified in a developer-defined date range for the control. For date selection the user needs only to click on the date. Display options include independent weekend colors, independent date formatting (fonts, colors), navigation buttons, week numbering, and a variety of border options for the selected and unselected dates. The control��s compact footprint makes it ideal in situations where screen real-estate is at a premium.
dbiDropDate is an enhanced date or time edit object with a built-in drop-down calendar. The optional drop button automatically displays a built-in drop-down calendar when clicked. Additionally, spinner buttons may be displayed for changing values discretely based on the carat position (i.e. Month, Day, Year or Hour, Minute, Second). The control also includes ��intelligent�� data-entry features to recognize and auto-complete partial values, i.e. enter ��J 1�� and press enter and the control converts the value to January 1st of the current year.
dbiMonth is a highly customizable month view calendar component that provides sophisticated visual flexibility and built-in functionality. The control can be configured to support a limitless set of month-view presentations and user interactions. The component provides extensive control over graphical presentation including independent colors, text, and graphics for each date.
The dbiPim assembly provides the collaboration data architectural platform for DBI's calendar and scheduling components. The primary focus of the dbiPim assembly is to host and manage the DBI Calendar Object Layer. While this object layer is based on the MS Outlook object model, it has been designed to be more lightweight and less complex than Outlook��s model. The object layer in the Calendar Tools for .NET ver. 2.0 has been intentionally designed as a ��thin object model�� to make the controls and collections within the controls as intuitive to use as possible. Developers are not required to dive through four and five layers of the objects inherited up the chain from other base objects. The DBI Calendar Tools controls sit in a two-layer structure; a component layer and a support layer.
