dyn-drive calendar script not working..

P: n/a
hi,

am trying to run this calendar script
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamici...pcalendar.htm#

here,
http://www.mayacove.com/calendar/test_calendar.html

for one thing, it only works in IE; in FF even here,
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamici...pcalendar.htm#
get error when click on [choose one]

(error I get is 'obj' is null, and that's b/c obj is declared thus:
var obj = document.all['PopUpCalendar'];
of course FF can't read this.. )
there's not even a warning on the page that this script won't work in FF..

in IE error I get when trigger function is:
'document.ppcMonthList.sItem' is null or not an object..

in readme file (http://www.mayacove.com/calendar/readme.html) it says:
Open the file pupdate.txt, select all text inside, copy it and past at
the bottom of your page (before the closing </bodytag).

there's no pupdate.txt file in the download, only the .js and
readme.html....

have searched, can't find another calendar pop-up script like this one..

thank you...

When you encounter problems with a downloaded script, you should ask the
author for help/bugfixes. In your case that would be Sev Kotchnev
<we*******@personal-connections.com>. Although, after looking at the
script for 1.5 seconds, and seeing this line scroll by...

document.writeln("<layer id=\"monthDays\" left=\"0\" top=\"52\"
width=\"200\" height=\"17\" z-index=\"8\" bgcolor=\"#FFFFFF\"
visibility=\"inherit\"</layer></layer>");}

.... I think it's for the best that you won't be using this script after all.

There's a calendar library that's been used in a project I've worked on
a few years ago. IIRC, it was quite versatile, but extremely code-heavy
and possibly not of the best quality; if I'm not mistaken the developer
has abandoned it or released it into the public domain. But it might be
worth a try; look for "dyncalendar". No guarantees though, I haven't
looked at the source (I was writing the backend at the time), but it
seemed to be working fine for the UI designers.

Other than that, there must be hundreds of those scripts floating
around... the Goog should know.

thank you for yr response, Conrad.. actually after I posted this I
found two other sites with calendar-scripts:

http://www.dhtmlgoodies.com/index.ht...alendarScripts
http://www.mattkruse.com/javascript/calendarpopup/

also, I searched for 'dyncalendar' at your suggestion, found lots of
entries.. thank you very much..

That's unfit by design for Web use, as the Web is an international
medium and that page uses non-standard Weeks and shows an FFF date.

There's code on that site which is at most 2/3 correct. It shows Paris
time as 6:37 PM when it's 14:37 here.

It says "To display the local time of Paris then, simply enter into the
script the time differential between Paris and your server time" But
server time should be UTC, whereas Paris time offset varies seasonally -
and changes on different dates from NA.

There's calendar code on my site; not pop-up, but it could be made so.
There is also "Time anywhere" code - Israel Iran Morocco Mauritius, and
AFAIK no others, excepted.
