Can I change the date format?

Open the file "DCEventCalendar.js", go to the lines #9, #10 and where says:

    mCfg.MDY_DAY_POSITION = 2;

... change those lines to:

    mCfg.MDY_DAY_POSITION = 1;

How can I change the font size in the popup?

Open the file "container.css" and add these styles:

For the header popup:

.yui-panel .hd{font-size:10px;}

For the body popup:

.yui-panel .bd{font-size:10px;}

I'm inserting the calendar in a template or I need to fix the calendar's folder in a different location, what configuration steps should be applied?

Follow these steps:

  1. In your page you must change the reference to the public.js file to an absolute reference, for example (absolute path to the site's root):

    <script type="text/javascript" src="/DC_ASPEventCalendar/public.js"></script>

  2. Open the file “public.js” and in the line #1 change the path to the calendar folder (absolute path to the site's root), example:

    var pathCalendar = "/DC_ASPEventCalendar";

  3. Open the File “DCEventCalendar.js” and in the line #1 make the same change than above, example:

    var pathCalendar = "/DC_ASPEventCalendar";

    ...note that the leading "/" means that the folder is located in the main site's root folder. If you want to put the folder into the "templates" folder then this will be the correct value:

    var pathCalendar = "/Templates/DC_ASPEventCalendar";

How do I get a calendar to open on a specific month?

Open the file "DC_ASPEventCalendar/DC_EventCalendar.js" and in the first lines locate this:

   pagedate = "";

and change it to:

    pagedate = "8/2010";

Note: The above sample means August/2010

How can I add new colors to the calendar?

You can add colors at the end of the file "DC_EventCalendar/calendarcolors.js".

myColors[84]= "#AB4038";
myColors[85]= "#DAC9AD";

When I preview my web page atfer I get this message in my Internet Explorer,"To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted...". What is the problem?

If you are testing your page directly from your local hard disk in IE 7, this message appears:

"To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this webpage from running scripts or ActiveX controls that could access your computer. Click here for options."

In IE 7 this message appears when you test a web page that contains a script or Flash item directly form your local hard disk. When you upload your page to an online web server that message does not appear.

The address from a web server must start with http:// or https:// . On the other hand if the address start with C:\ or file:// then you are testing it from your local hard disk.

Just upload your web page to your web site and you will see that the error disappears.

I'm getting this error message "Is not possible to create data structure.". What's happening?

Please, change the "Links relative to" setting in the site configuration options (Dreamweaver 8 or later).

If this setting does not solve the problem, then follow these steps:

  1. Restart Dreamweaver
  2. Be sure that you have a local web site defined in Dreamweaver
  3. Open the page where you want to insert the extension(this page must be saved previously into your web site)
  4. Try to insert the extension again

I'm getting this error: "TypeError: THE_DOM has no properties" . There is a workaround?

Please follow these steps:
  1. Check if  you have defined a local web site at dreamweaver.
  2. Check if you have saved the page into your local web site.
  3. If you are using Dreamweaver templates, check if your templates allow an "Editable Region" in the <HEAD> section of the HTML code.
  4. After these checks, please restart your Dreamweaver and try again.
If the above actions don’t solve the problem, then probably the reason is a wrong HTML structure in the page that you are trying to use the product, in this case, please check the page’s HTML structure and if you cannot find the problem then contact our support service.

What version works best for me: the standalone version or the online version?

If you have previous experience developing web sites in Dreamweaver and your server supports the required scripts (PHP or ASP) then the standalone version fits better for you. On the other hand if you are looking for an extremely easy solution with no requirements from your web server then we recommend you the online service.

What is the price of these products?

The standalone calendars are one time purchase products: after the purchase you will get a copy of the software that you can install, configure and use in your web sites. On the other hand the online calendar service has a monthly fee since in this case we host your calendar in our own services making the entire process of installation and configuration much easier and faster.

How do I set write permissions on the required folders?

The standalone versions of the calendars require to set write permissions into one folder in order to be able to save the calendar's information.

For Linux/Unis servers: FTP programs ("clients") allow you to set permissions for files and directories on your remote host. This function is often called chmod or set permissions in the program menu.

In the first image, look at the last column - that shows the permissions. It looks a bit confusing, but for now just note the sequence of letters:

Right click the folder or files to set permissions, and usually a popup screen will appear (see the second image):

Don't worry about the check boxes. Just delete the 'Numeric value:' and enter the number you need - in this case it's 777 or simply mark all checkboxes. Then click OK.

For Windows Servers: There should be an option in your web hosting control panel to set write permissions. If it's not present, you may can contact your web hosting service and request the write permissions for the ASP code.
