see attached aia file.

This project demonstrates a simple calendar with a date-picker which can be added to a project.
It consists of two screens.

Screen1 opens the Calendar screen.
The user can use controls to navigate the calendar by months or can pick a specific month or year with listpickers.
A 'today' button shows the month containing the current day.
The user can touch a day button to select that date and a list is returned to Screen1 in the following format:

item 1: year (2012 - 2020)
item 2: month (1 - 12)
item 3: day number (1 - 31)
item 4: formatted text date

The second figure shows the blocks that return the date list.

The third figure shows how the date might be processed for display in Screen1.

If the Calendar screen is closed by pressing the hardware or soft back buttons, an empty list will be returned to Screen1.

You can extend the years covered easily or modify the date information returned to Screen1, if you wish.

Current version of the project is 2.0 which fixed a missing block on button #31.

Dear Scott, the link to download the calendar.zip file is not working.

Also, may I know what does the index with value 4 (in 3rd picture) mean?

Hi scott, may I also know how do you get the calendar itself (Screen1)? From the phone's calendar or you used webviewer to open a website with a calendar??

Sorry, let me rephrase my last question. How do you get the calendar page/screen itself? And then display it like that on the app? From the phone's calendar or you used webviewer to open a website with a calendar??

The Clock component provides the date and time and gets those values from the system clock internally.
The values are passed from the calendar screen in a list to the main calling screen using close screen with value and other screen closed.
Send me an email to scottfr...@gmail.com and i will attach the project zip file and return it to your email address.
I recall that some people have had trouble downloading attachments from Google groups but don't have a solution other than attaching to an email.

Thanks for the zip file, guess im one of those that can't download it from online! (:

Anyways, how can we store/tag data onto dates? my app has to:
-save a data each day. The data have to be stored into the date it was created. E.g. 1500kcal on 28/1/2014
-the data saved in the tag has to be linked to the date variable on the calendar, or is the date itself on the calendar, so that when the user select a date, it will show how much kcal the user have consumed on that day.

If someone clicks a day, to has the option to save in different colors the days in that calendar

1)morning
2)night
3)afternoon
4)dayoff
5)sick

With option to save repeat shift after 5 days

You could have the app test the text that was just entered for a day.
If morning was entered, make the button color color for that day red.
If night was entered, make the button color green, etc.
