Calendar Control Addendum 2

Year/Month Buttons, Name of Month

This addendum video will show you how to add buttons to the top of the monthly calendar form so you can move between months and years without having to leave the form. You'll also see how to put the name of the current month and year on the top of the form. Finally, I'll show you how to make buttons to quickly jump between the top and bottom of the form if it's too tall to fit on one screen.

Here is a VIDEO TUTORIAL that will walk you through this topic in detail. Click on the link below.

There is also a supplemental copy of the database available on the Student Databases page for owners of the full Calendar Seminar. You will need your password for the class to open the database file.


One of my very observant students pointed out that with this new code, when you move from month to month the greying-out of the days code is now broken. You can see this in the video if you look carefully. This is because we were only checking to see if the day needed to be set to gray but NOT setting it to WHITE otherwise... because we were only opening the form ONCE before to a single month, and white was the default color. So to fix this, just add this new code in the DatePickerF form's OpenCalendar sub:

If Month(Forms!MonthlyCalendarF(S1)) <> Month(Calendar) Then
    Forms!MonthlyCalendarF(S2).BackColor = &HD8D8D8
    Forms!MonthlyCalendarF(S2).BackColor = &HFFFFFF

End If

The new code is in green. That should fix the problem. Now we're comparing the dates, and if the month is NOT the same, set it to grey... ELSE if it IS the same, set it to white.
