B4A Library [B4X] [XUI] AS DatePickerTimeline

Date Picker Library that provides a calendar as a horizontal timeline.
This library is inspired by a Flutter library, but the B4X one is better ;)

I spend a lot of time in creating views, like this and to create a high quality view cost a lot of time. If you want to support me and further views, then you can do it here by Paypal or with a coffee. :)

The view has 2 modes:
  • Paging - you scroll page by page
  • List - scrolling without snapping

Make all sundays red:
Private Sub AS_DatePickerTimeline1_CustomDrawDay (Date As Long, BackgroundPanel As B4XView)
    Dim xlbl_Date As B4XView = BackgroundPanel.GetView(0)
 
    'Month Name - January
    Dim xlbl_Month As B4XView = BackgroundPanel.GetView(1) 'Ignore
    'WeekDay Name - Monday
    Dim xlbl_WeekDay As B4XView = BackgroundPanel.GetView(2) 'Ignore
 
    If DateTime.GetDayOfWeek(Date) = 1 Then '1=Sunday
        xlbl_Date.TextColor = xui.Color_ARGB(255,221, 95, 96)
    End If
End Sub

This makes absolutely no sense.
If you want to select only one month, then use a spinner where the months are listed.
I don't understand why. Sometimes you need to select only a month of a year or previous year or next year and so on. Or a range of months.
Maybe you mean this is not the purpose of this view...

Exactly.

But not with a DatePickerTimeline, there are much more effective ways to do that.

Hi,

Possible to add ListMode to paging or list in programming?

And why Scroll2Date crash my app in list mode, not in paging?

thanks

Does Scroll2Date works in List Mode?
It throught an error with:


B4X:
Error occurred on line: 444 (AS_DatePickerTimeline)
java.lang.RuntimeException: Class instance was not initialized (asviewpager)
