Calendar Control Trick - Is it possible?

P: n/a
Can I do anything with the calendar buttons? I want to display a
number on the buttons.

I'm using the calendar control on a form that sets a call back date
and time. The user can click on the calendar if they wish to set the
date in the date field. It also serves the purpose of using a
calendar. Also on that form, I have a subform that shows a query which
shows the count of call backs set for each date. I would like to be
able to display that number on the corresponding button on the
calendar. In otherwords, if there are 16 call backs schedule for the
5th of March, then the square for the 5th of March would show the
number 16 in it.

Is that possible?

Thanks in advance!

No, not with the standard Micrsoft calendar control.
Perhaps you can find a 3rd party one?
Or write your own.

Whether its possible or not it would be horridly confusing. It woudl
be extremely difficult to look at that and glean any useful data. You
would have to count the buttons to see what day of the month any of
them were and as your changed months/yeras on the control you woudl
have to recount. Not a very useful control at all.

Mike,

I have a calendar form that I developed that looks like a page torn from a
standard calendar. The year and month are selectable. The calendar form can
display different data for each day. The data displayed is always in sync
with the year and month selected. The data displayed changes when the year
and/or month are changed. There is also a calendar report with the same look
that will give a hardcopy of the data displayed on the screen. I have
implemented my calsndar form/report in many ways for numerous customers for
a very reasonable fee. The calendar form/report could be implemented for you
to show a list of call backs for each day. An enhancement could be
implemented where you would click on any call back and a form would open
showing all the details of the call back or the form could allow you to
enter the particulars from the call back when it was made.

So why not post it on your webpage so that Mike can download it for free?

Or are you just mentioning it so you can con Mike out of some money?

No, not really. The day would display the date in the corner like
usual. Then in a different color or style in the middle of the button,
it would display a number that corresponded to the number of call back
records with that day's date. It wouldn't be difficult to read at all.

There are many, many date-pickers done with Access forms and controls, not
the built-in Calendar Control, which you cannot alter as you wish.

There are also FREE examples of Calendar Forms and Reports... here are some:

http://www.kallal.ca/ridestutorialp/setdriver.htm MVP Albert Kallal's

calendar downloads

Best of luck with your calendar project.

If it's a "trick" then post it under your "tricks and tips" heading on your
web site instead of the "coming soon" that's been there for 5 years.
