New Class: DateDialog (Calendare Picker)

Methods:
  • Initialize (Myactivity As Activity, Date As Long)
  • SetDate(Date As Long)
  • Show(Title As String)
Properties:
  • DateSelected As Long (Only read)


Find alternative Code on Post#8

I have updated the code so it is possible to set the design you start with the current date (DateTime.Now)

This is a new forum category for the benefit of us all. It is intended as a place to share code snippets that you feel may be of interest to other developers. It could be a couple of lines, or a class.
So I thought a class was fine.

I have already created other objects I have inserted in the code snippets with CustomView.

I preferred to do this as in InputDialogs for my needs.

In fact, even the Italians (like me) use the same method. o_Oo_O
I was based on the fact that the British start from Sunday .... But I think your observation is correct, you have to include an option to indicate whether you start from Sunday or Monday.
The solution would be more complete.

Thank you for your comments ;);)

Is wonderful idea :p:p:p:p:p

I've written a modified version with the option to have the week start either on Sun or Mon, and have the days for Sat and/or Sun in red.
I've also changed a bit the support subs to speed it up a bit, mainly when moving between months. It does not break existing code.

B4X:
Sub Class_Globals
    Public DateSelected As Long
  
    Private Colore As Int = Colors.RGB(0,150,136)
    Private ColorLabelNow As Int
    Private MyAct As Activity
    Private DateRet As Long = 0
    Private Ret As Int = 0

    Private Pa As Panel
    Private Cale As Panel

    Private SundayHdrRed As Boolean=True
    Private SundayDaysRed As Boolean=False
    Private SaturdayHdrRed As Boolean=False
    Private SaturdayDaysRed As Boolean=False
End Sub

'Initializes the object. You can add parameters to this method if needed.
Public Sub Initialize(Myactivity As Activity, Date As Long)
    MyAct=Myactivity
    DateSelected=Date
    DateRet=Date
    InitGiorno
    InitMese
End Sub

'True=Week starts on Monday
'False=Week starts on Sunday
Public Sub setStartOnMonday(StartOnMonday As Boolean)
    If StartOnMonday Then DayShift=1
End Sub

'Set to 0 for Sunday days and header in black
'Set to 1 to turn red only the header of Sundays
'Set to 2 to turn red header and days for Sundays
Public Sub setRedSunday(IsRed As Int)
    Select Case IsRed
        Case 0
            SundayHdrRed=False
            SundayDaysRed=False

        Case 2
            SundayHdrRed=True
            SundayDaysRed=True
    End Select
End Sub

'Set to 0 for Saturday days and header in black
'Set to 1 to turn red only the header of Saturdays

Hi @Star-Dust :)
First of all my compliments for this nice date picker!

Within my project I'm using a code snippet to manage the date picker:

B4X:
        Dim dd As DateDialog
        dd.DateTicks = DateTime.Now
        Dim sf As Object = dd.ShowAsync("", "Scegli una data...", "CONFERMA", "", "", Null, False)
        Wait For (sf) Dialog_Result(Result As Int)
        If Result = DialogResponse.POSITIVE Then
            DateTime.DateFormat = "dd/MM/yyyy"
            Private sDate As String = DateTime.Date(dd.DateTicks)
            Log(DateTime.Date(dd.DateTicks))
        End If
Few lines of code and works fine.... but the problem is that I must set / change the colors in order to be compliant with the final user colors guidelines (final user don't accept the app if colors aren't compliant).

So my question is: "Using your calendar picker is it possible to set the colors (for ex. instead of the green header a set a blue calendar header).

Thanks in advance for your reply :)

I apologize for the delay in the answer but I just read it now. I did not agree with your message.

Source code is available and you can do all the customizations you want.

Color is the first variable you find in the code :)

I have updated (post#1) the code so it is possible to set the design you start with the current date (DateTime.Now)
