Subject RE: Model for Calendar

I am planning to write a better calendar model for roller which you can drop
in as plug-in and control from velocity to generate a custom template. I
will publish it on this list as soon as I have it working.

Thanks for the info Adib,
I think this is should be the next big step for Roller - we need to have
ability to generate CUSTOM UI elements (like calendars, comments, etc...)
instead of using build in macros. 
For example I managed to create custom Search form, but this is simple UI
For this we need to have all data available via models. In other words we
need to have ALL posible data in models.
I guess it requeres a lot of chenges of existing code. But this is very
critical for template developers.
Is any way to solve such problem via pluggins?

Hi Gene,

I want to do the same thing, in roller 3.1 but it can't be done easily. I
found out the calendar is ipmelemented as a jsp custom tag and prev next
characters are hard coded. So you if you want to change the characater that
the calendar is displaying you have to change the java code. 

I am not a roller devolper so maybe there is a way that I do not know about.
I have not looked at the calendar model in the 4.0 RC so I do not know if
you can do it in the 4.0 release.

I want to create a template which generates custom HTML code for Calendar.
I know we have calendar model but it looks like no data available through
the model.
How can I get all data related to calendar to generate the code?
Like links for next/prev months, current month, etc...
