JS Calendar Contrib

DEPRECATED pop-up calendar with date picker -- please upgrade to new DatePickerPlugin

Deprecation Notice and Migration

This Mishoo JSCalendar based DHTML pop-up calendar is now repackaged as DatePickerPlugin. Simply installing the TWiki:Plugins.DatePickerPlugin is not enough:

Migrate Popup Calendar in HTML Forms

Please update your content to use the %DATEPICKER{}% variable instead of handcrafted HTML to show a popup calendar.

The old JSCalendarContrib way:
%INCLUDE{"%SYSTEMWEB%.JSCalendarContribInline"}%
<input type="text" name="start_date" id="cal_val_here" />
<input type="image"
 src="%PUBURL%/%SYSTEMWEB%/JSCalendarContrib/img.gif" 
 onclick="javascript:
  return showCalendar('cal_val_here','%Y-%m-%d')" />

    Change to the new DatePickerPlugin way:
%DATEPICKER{ name="start_date" }%

Migrate Plugins using JSCalendarContrib

Please update your plugins to use the new DatePickerPlugin. Example:

The old JSCalendarContrib way:
use TWiki::Contrib::JSCalendarContrib;
...
my $fromDate =
 TWiki::Contrib::JSCalendarContrib::renderDateForEdit(
   'from', '1 April 1999');
my $toDate =
 TWiki::Contrib::JSCalendarContrib::renderDateForEdit(
   'to', undef, '%Y');

    Change to the new DatePickerPlugin way:
use TWiki::Plugins::DatePickerPlugin;
...
my $fromDate =
 TWiki::Plugins::DatePickerPlugin::renderForEdit(
   'from', '1 April 1999');
my $toDate =
 TWiki::Plugins::DatePickerPlugin::renderForEdit(
   'to', undef, '%Y');

Example using hand-crafted Javascript:

The old JSCalendarContrib way:
use TWiki::Contrib::JSCalendarContrib;
...

sub commonTagsHandler {
  ....
  TWiki::Contrib::JSCalendarContrib::addHEAD( 'twiki' );

  my $cal = CGI::image_button(
      -name => 'img_datefield',
      -onclick =>
       "return showCalendar('id_datefield','%Y %b %e')",
      -src=> TWiki::Func::getPubUrlPath() . '/' .
             TWiki::Func::getTwikiWebname() .
             '/JSCalendarContrib/img.gif',
      -alt => 'Calendar',
      -align => 'middle' )
    . CGI::textfield(
      { name => 'date', id => "id_datefield" });
  ....
}

    Change to the new DatePickerPlugin way:
use TWiki::Plugins::DatePickerPlugin;
...

sub commonTagsHandler {
  ....
  TWiki::Plugins::DatePickerPlugin::addToHEAD( 'twiki' );

  my $cal = CGI::image_button(
      -name => 'img_datefield',
      -onclick =>
       "return showCalendar('id_datefield','%Y %b %e')",
      -src=> TWiki::Func::getPubUrlPath() . '/' .
             TWiki::Func::getTwikiWebname() .
             '/DatePickerPlugin/img.gif',
      -alt => 'Calendar',
      -align => 'middle' )
    . CGI::textfield(
      { name => 'date', id => "id_datefield" });
  ....
}
