Calendar Applications

Chapter Overview

This chapter will cover the nuts and bolts of a calendar application. The Lotus Notes calendar is perhaps one of the most popular and easy to use components of Notes. It's a great collaborative tool that's simple to develop.

Calendars can be used for many different purposes. Some of the more popular uses include

  • Vacation planner
  • Conference room reservations
  • Equipment reservations
  • Shared business or department calendar
  • Resource or event planner

By the end of the chapter you will have learned

  • The elements of a calendar
  • The elements of a recurring event
  • How to create a calendar application
  • How to manage simple recurring events
  • How to manage complex recurring events
  • How to create a custom dialog box
  • How to create and use layout regions

This chapter includes step-by-step instructions for building two distinctly different calendar applications. The first project illustrates how to create a simple recurring event calendar. The second illustrates an alternative design approach that permits complex repeating calendar events.
