    Calendar Day View in Flex

    alice_data Level 1
      Hi,

      I am not sure if this place is the right place where I am supposed to post this.
      Has anyone tried using Flex to build a calendar application from scratch? I am having some problems with finding the right elements that would display the calendar in a day view that looks a bit like a timetable, but so far I have only found calendar components that display in a monthly view.
      Does anyone know if there are other possible components other than mx:DateChooser to build an application that allows users to list things in a day view, a monthly view and possibly other customized views? Or, do I have to "establish" each of these elements by compiling them manually with images?

          I built something with a month and a week view. I used a TileList for the
          month, and a custom component that does something sort of like an Accordion
          that held a List with a custom itemRenderer for each day. Essentially, I
          had an array of dates that I grouped different ways for the different views.
          If I had it to do over, I'd extend HierarchicalCollectionView to have a
          grouping function and use that to group on the different time periods. But
          this is how I dealt with the dates...
