    Unhappy JavaScript Calender or PHP or ...


    I am looking for a way to build a yearly calender, very much like this one...

    http://javascript.internet.com/calen.../calendar.html

    What I need is a booking system, where people can come and check an available time slot. If the time is free they can make an appointment. If they make an appointment the time or info shows up on the calender and the company can check the information.

    Is this JavaScript or PHP or what. I am completly perplexed.

    Thanks for looking out.

    For sure, a server side language such as PHP is needed to make sure that the appointments are stored so that they will be there next time the calendar is viewed. The calendar itself could be controlled by javascript or PHP.

    All you need to do is know how many days are in the month based upon the year the calendar applies to, and then build a table to represent the calendar graphically.

    I found what I was looking for.


    I find all the server end technologies fascinating, but, they really aren't where I'm headed. This calender is fully customizable and probably cheaper than I can outsource for. Take a look:

    Plus it comes with source code as well. So I can learn from it.

    Thanks for your help on this.

    Bit ugly in execution but does the trick.

    Quick Question


    Do you mean because of the horizontal scroll bar or is it something mor than that?

    I'm sure you can size it and change it's appearance.

    But that might not be what you were talking about.

    Just the layout... I mean, if you compare it to the likes of the calendar in Outlook which is simpler but more intuitive.
