Class WCalendar

public class WCalendar
extends WCompositeWidget
A calendar.

The calendar provides navigation by month and year, and indicates the current day.

You can listen for single click or double click events on a calendar cell using the clicked() and activated() methods.

The calendar may be configured to allow selection of single or multiple days using setSelectionMode(), and you may listen for changes in the selection using the selectionChanged() signals. Selection can also be entirely disabled in which case you can implement your own selection handling by listening for cell click events.

Cell rendering may be customized by reimplementing renderCell().

Internationalization is provided by the internationalization features of the WDate class.

Here is a snapshot, taken on 19/01/2010 (shown as today), and 14/01/2010 currently selected.

    • select

      public void select​(java.util.Set<WDate> dates)
      Selects multiple dates.

      Select multiple dates. In multiple selection mode, this results in a getSelection() that contains exactly the given dates. In single selection mode, at most one date is set.

    • selectionChanged

      public Signal selectionChanged()
      Signal emitted when the user changes the selection.

      Emitted after the user has changed the current selection.

    • activated

      public Signal1<WDate> activated()
      Signal emitted when the user double-clicks a date.

      You may want to connect to this signal to treat a double click as the selection of a date.

    • clicked

      public Signal1<WDate> clicked()
      Signal emitted when the user clicks a date.

      You may want to connect to this signal if you want to provide a custom selection handling.

    • currentPageChanged

      public Signal2<java.lang.Integer,​java.lang.Integer> currentPageChanged()
      Signal emitted when the current month is changed.

      The method is emitted both when the change is done through the user interface or via the public API. The two parameters are respectively the new year and month.

    • setMultipleSelection

      public void setMultipleSelection​(boolean multiple)
      use setSelectionMode() instead.
      Configures single or multiple selection mode ( deprecated ).

      In single selection mode, only one date may be selected: the getSelection() will be empty or contain exactly one item.

    • selected

      public Signal1<WDate> selected()
      use activated() instead.
      Signal emitted when the user has double clicked on a date (deprecated).

      This signal indicates that he user has selected a new date, which is only available when in single selection mode.

    • setSingleClickSelect

      public void setSingleClickSelect​(boolean single)
      Configures the calendar to use single click for activation.

      By default, double click will trigger activate(). Use this method if you want a single click to trigger activate() (and the now deprecated selected() method). This only applies to a single-selection calendar.

      If selectionMode() is set to SelectionMode.SingleSelection, this will cause the selection to change on a single click instead of a double click.

      Instead of enabling single click, you can also listen to the clicked() signal to process a single click.

      setSelectionMode(SelectionMode mode)
    • setDayOfWeekLength

      public void setDayOfWeekLength​(int chars)
      Sets the length for the abbreviated day of week ( deprecated ).

      The chars may be 1 or 3, which render "Monday" as respectively "M" or "Mon".

      The default length is 3.

    • setBottom

      public void setBottom​(WDate bottom)
      Sets the bottom of the valid date range.

      Returns the bottom date of the valid range.
    • setTop

      public void setTop​(WDate top)
      Sets the top of the valid date range.

      The default top is null.

    • getTop

      public WDate getTop()
      Returns the top date of the valid range.
    • load

      public void load()
      Description copied from class: WWidget
      Loads content just before the widget is used.

      This method is called after a widget is inserted in the widget hierarchy and fully constructed, but before the widget is rendered. Widgets that get inserted in the widget hierarchy will be rendered. Visible widgets are rendered immediately, and invisible widgets in the back-ground (or not for a plain HTML session). This method is called when the widget is directly or indirectly inserted into the widget tree.

      The default implementation simply propagates the load signal to its children. You may want to override this method to delay loading of resource-intensive contents.

      During the life-time of a widget, this method may be called multiple times, so you should make sure that you do a deferred initializiation only once.

    • render

      protected void render​(java.util.EnumSet<RenderFlag> flags)
      Description copied from class: WWidget
      Renders the widget.

      This function renders the widget (or an update for the widget), after this has been scheduled using scheduleRender().

      The default implementation will render the widget by serializing changes to JavaScript and HTML. You may want to reimplement this widget if you have been postponing some of the layout / rendering implementation until the latest moment possible. In that case you should make sure you call the base implementation however.

    • renderCell

      protected WWidget renderCell​(WWidget widget, WDate date)
      Creates or updates a widget that renders a cell.

      The default implementation creates a WText

      You may want to reimplement this method if you wish to customize how a cell is rendered. When widget is null, a new widget should be created and returned. Otherwise, you may either modify the passed widget, or return a new widget. If you return a new widget, the prevoius widget will be deleted.

    • isSelected

      protected boolean isSelected​(WDate d)
      Returns whether a date is selected.

      This is a convenience method that can be used when reimplementing renderCell().

    • enableAjax

      protected void enableAjax()
      Description copied from class: WWidget
      Progresses to an Ajax-enabled widget.

      This method is called when the progressive bootstrap method is used, and support for AJAX has been detected. The default behavior will upgrade the widget's event handling to use AJAX instead of full page reloads, and propagate the call to its children.

      You may want to reimplement this method if you want to make changes to widget when AJAX is enabled. You should always call the base implementation.
