In the process of writing a diary/planner (PIM) type application, I came across the need for a year planner. You know the kind of thing, much like a full year calendar showing ALL the days for ALL the months of a given year. I actually looked around on the internet for a suitable component, found quite a few, some where quite expensive, some where cheap, and some where free.
But none of them did what I wanted from such a component:
- must be uncluttered (nor too much of the "fancy" coloring and "doodaps"),
- must be simple to use,
- must cater for any (reasonable) year,
- Must be able to show multiple tasks/events concurrently,
- Must be able to span events over multiple months.
Here’s a screen shot of what was hoped to be achieved...
