1. Description

This plugin allows you to add events to the Calendar of the mobile device.

iOS specifics

  • Supported methods: find, create, modify, delete.
  • All methods work without showing the native calendar. Your app never looses control.
  • Tested on iOS 6 and 7.

Android specifics

  • Only the create method is supported (more may come, if people request it, but creating is the most important thing, right?).
  • When the create method is called, the use is presented a prefilled calendar item. Pressing the hardware back button will give control back to your app.
  • Tested on Android 4.

2. Installation

Automatically (CLI / Plugman)

Calendar is compatible with Cordova Plugman and ready for the PhoneGap 3.0 CLI, here's how it works with the CLI:

$ phonegap local plugin add https://github.com/EddyVerbruggen/Calendar-PhoneGap-Plugin.git

or

$ cordova plugin add https://github.com/EddyVerbruggen/Calendar-PhoneGap-Plugin.git

don't forget to run this command afterwards:

$ cordova build

Manually

1. Add the following xml to your config.xml:

<!-- for iOS -->
<feature name="Calendar">
    <param name="ios-package" value="Calendar" />
</feature>
<!-- for Android -->
<feature name="Calendar">
  <param name="android-package" value="nl.xservices.plugins.Calendar" />
</feature>

2. Grab a copy of Calendar.js, add it to your project and reference it in index.html:

<script type="text/javascript" src="js/Calendar.js"></script>

3. Download the source files for iOS and/or Android and copy them to your project.

iOS: Copy Calendar.h and Calendar.m to platforms/ios/<ProjectName>/Plugins

Android: Copy Calendar.java to platforms/android/src/nl/xservices/plugins (create the folders)

PhoneGap Build

Using Calendar with PhoneGap Build requires these simple steps:

1. Add the following xml to your config.xml to always use the latest version of this plugin:

<gap:plugin name="nl.x-services.plugins.calendar" />

or to use this exact version:

<gap:plugin name="nl.x-services.plugins.calendar" version="1.0" />

2. Reference the JavaScript code in your index.html:

<!-- below <script src="phonegap.js"></script> -->
<script src="js/plugins/Calendar.js"></script>

3. Usage

Basic operations, you'll want to copy-paste this for testing purposes:

  // prep some variables
  var startDate = new Date("September 24, 2013 13:00:00");
  var endDate = new Date("September 24, 2013 14:30:00");
  var title = "My nice event";
  var location = "Home";
  var notes = "Some notes about this event.";
  var success = function(message) { alert("Success: " + JSON.stringify(message)); };
  var error = function(message) { alert("Error: " + message); };

  // create a calendar (iOS only for now)
  window.plugins.calendar.createCalendar(calendarName,success,error);

  // delete a calendar (iOS only for now)
  window.plugins.calendar.deleteCalendar(calendarName,success,error);

  // create (the only function also supported on Android for now)
  window.plugins.calendar.createEvent(title,location,notes,startDate,endDate,success,error);

  // create in a named calendar (iOS only for now)
  window.plugins.calendar.createEventInNamedCalendar(title,location,notes,startDate,endDate,calendarName,success,error);

  // find (iOS only for now)
  window.plugins.calendar.findEvent(title,location,notes,startDate,endDate,success,error);

  // find all events in a named calendar (iOS only for now)
  window.plugins.calendar.findAllEventsInNamedCalendar(calendarName,success,error);

  // change an event (iOS only for now)
  var newTitle = "New title!";
  window.plugins.calendar.modifyEvent(title,location,notes,startDate,endDate,newTitle,location,notes,startDate,endDate,success,error);

  // delete (iOS only for now)
  // note that it deletes all matching events, which are duplicates anyway
  window.plugins.calendar.deleteEvent(newTitle,location,notes,startDate,endDate,success,error);

Creating an all day event:

  // set the startdate to midnight and set the enddate to midnight the next day
  var startDate = new Date("September 24, 2013 00:00:00");
  var endDate = new Date("September 25, 2013 00:00:00");

Creating an event for 3 full days

  // set the startdate to midnight and set the enddate to midnight 3 days later
  var startDate = new Date("September 24, 2013 00:00:00");
  var endDate = new Date("September 27, 2013 00:00:00");

4. CREDITS

This plugin was enhanced for Plugman / PhoneGap Build by Eddy Verbruggen. I fixed some issues in the native code (mainly for iOS) and changed the JS-Native functions a little in order to make a universal JS API for both platforms.
