This thread is intended for the sole purpose of how to install ASP Calndars into your web program.

Setup Instructions for ASP Calendars

1. Extract all files from Calendar.zip into your webpage root directory. Make sure the directory structure is exactly as you see it in the zip directory. Make sure your root directory is setup to run ASP 2.0 in IIS.

2. If you don’t have a database already, create a database in SQL Server 2005 Management Studio.

3. Open Calendar.sql in Management studio. Make sure the database you want to apply the changes to is selected in the drop down menu in the upper left of Management Studio.

4. Execute the file.

5. Open your web project that you extracted the files into using Visual Studio 2005.

6. In your connectionstrings section of your web.config, you will find a value for CMSDatabase. Replace the database values in the spots indicated with your values.

7. The default.aspx file should have multiple views of what ASP Calendars has to offer. If you want to add a calendar from scratch, expand the Controls directory and drag and drop Calendar.ascx on to your web form. Below are the possible custom property values that have been included.

Properties:
Calendar: This is the ID of the calendar you wish to display. This ID list can be found in the admin folder in ManageCalendars.aspx
ViewType: This sets which style you wish to show. Possible Values are Month, Week, or Day. Month is default.
StartDate: (Optional) The first day you want the Calendar to start at.

8. Run you web project.

Note: It is important to make sure your calendar can find the default theme included in this project. The web.config file is currently set to have the “default” them setup on all pages. Feel free to change this at your discretion but it is important that the page containing the calendar control reference the css file found in the Default Theme. Failure to do this can result incorrect locations for popups or for popups not to show up at all.

This project was designed to be as easy as possible to drop into any project and take only minutes to get up and running. If you have any problems please refer to the support forum and post or search for your questions there.

Thanks.
