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,

Thanks Steve,
I know it may be simple, but I may accidentally make a mistake as I am a newbie!

BTW, I am one of those guys who actually reads the manual and likes to follow the instructions.
(My wife says I have a bad habit of not reading the manual (on anything, ha ha!)).

I appreciate your extra time to document this process.

Thank you very much for the answer, since the admin user can not remember the code.
Full v4 online coming in a couple days. Everything in the v3 help is applicable to v4 but v4 has additional features.

The opinion of the above is considered a good answer.

Hi Steve,

As you know I just purchased your product. Looks very promising.
Question: Watched the Videos about "Navigation Management"
I like the Frame Menu on Top and Alpha underneath after Login. I can see where to add to the Frame Menu
but how do i activate the Alpha Menu at the bottom of the Frame Menu
Many thanks
