Jim Coltz - JQuery Calendar / Latest Alpha Build causes problems with JQuery Calendar
« Last post by psamuels56 on September 04, 2018, 09:20:15 PM »
I'm adding this post in case anyone else has discovered that Alpha's latest Build (pre-release Build 5307) has caused some serious problems with the Calendar Program"  The first problem was brought to my attention by a user: When you click on an event in the Calendar, the Pop-Up display of the event is "blank" and does not show any of the correct information. 

At first, I didn't realize this was caused by the latest build, but eventually, I rolled back the server to the previous build (5271) and everything started working again (without needing to do any other updates or republishing).  I got the same results when I rolled back the Developer version (everything worked fine).

I also noticed that editing the component caused strange things to happen, with the new build (fields weren't saving, entries would disappear when I clicked on a field, etc.).

As I said, I'm just posting this in case anyone has had this issue, so they'd know the cause and a temporary fix. I've already sent a note to Jim Coltz and I'm sure he'll have a resolution quickly (it might be as simple as an update to the JQuery engine).
Mobile Applications / Thunderbird SMTP PW retention problem
« Last post by RobertStandley on July 13, 2018, 07:36:41 AM »

I'm having a problem with the SMTP outgoing portion of the App retaining my eMail password. I know it is in my KeyChain, however, every time I try to SEND I get this error message over and over again asking for a Password.When I got frustrated with this the other day I checked to see if the eMail had been SENT and there it sat.SO, how do I PERMANENTLY FIX this retention problem in Thunderbird???

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

This would take some changes to the jQuery that builds the month view.  In the A5JQCALENDAR-4-53.min.js file, located in the jqcalsrc folder, search for the function "BuildMonthRow"
in that function look for the lines "tempCss.push("st-more st-moreul");". Above these lines is the logic that calculates whether or not the "more" is shown, as well as the total number of events that triggers the "more". There are two different calculations, one when the calendar is first drawn, and the second when and event is added/edited/deleted from the calendar.

Hi Phil,

Sorry I didn't see this sooner. Let me take a look and I'll post back. It will most likely be a few days before I get to it.

Jim Coltz - JQuery Calendar / Monthly Calendar Box Issue
« Last post by psamuels56 on April 04, 2018, 08:52:40 PM »
Hi Jim-

It has been several years and I still love your Calendar Application (using it with the latest version of Alpha and with both IIS and Alpha Application Servers)!

As you may recall, I've done several variations for my customers and the JQ Calendar App has met all of my needs.  This year, one of my customers is using a 55" Monitor to post the calendar for the office.  It looks great. I have one issue: Previously, when I added events and the box has more items than will fit, there's a hyperlink automatically inserted to allow the person to view the rest of them (e.g. "5 More/View All").  When I unveiled the calendar, today, the boxes filled up with the first 5 items, without any way to get to the others.

I've attached two examples showing what I'm referring to: 
  • The first one HAS the link I like; and
    The second one shows a September 1st box that actually has 7 events.  Only the first 5 are shown and there's no way to get to the last 2. 

I'm thinking that this is happening because I use two lines for each event.  Ideally, I'd love it if the box would display only the first 4 events and offer the "3 More/View All" option if the customer wants to display the rest.

You always have magical solutions, so I decided to give you another challenge.  I suspect this will be an easy one, but I'll leave it up to you.

Thanks again for designing such a great program. It's the best calendar application for Alpha.

With appreciation,
