Is there any way to take the XML file which was created by Genopro and to put some of the data in a PHP or Javascript calendar?

I want to add a monthly calendar to my website and to dispaly all birthday dates which is taken from the Genopro XML file.

Above was an answer from GenoPro some time ago.
May be you can find something suitable on the net, Ron can work on and implement into the report.

I've found a nice free PHP calendar at:

http://www.bmgadg.com/ajax_calendar.php

But I don't know if it's possible to integrate the data From the Genopro XML database.

Maybe Ron can do something with that on His Report generator.

Personally I would steer away from PHP based scripts as not all web servers have this facility. I did find an alternative javascript-only free event calendar here that is very simple to use and should be quite straight forward to generate the DefineEvent/AddEvent scripts required using the Report Generator. The timeline scripts already extract the information on events. There would be just a small amount of code to filter bith dates and wedding anniversaries of living individuals and change the year and output a separate file.

I wonder if this should be a free-standing Report or should it be integrated into the existing Narrative Report?

For example you could install the event calendar script on your own web page and just use a separate Report Generator skin to refresh the event data for the calendar, as and when required.

I am happy to tackle this either way, although it will be a week or two before I have some time to delve further.

Of course there are many ways to display and use such calendar.
One way could be the use of a calendar icon in the heading frame, show then the calendar in the popup frame and hyperlink shown individuals in the calendar to the detail frame.
You then have an overview who else in that month has an anniversary event.
Just an idea.

I prefer a stand-alone skin to generate an html code which will display the calender, so I'll be able to put this calendar on the root page of my website.

If it's not a problem, maybe a solution is to make it possible on both ways: A stand alone skin and also a calendar-script integrated on the current report.

Attached is a layout sample with calendar icon next to the timeline icon and a full month in the popup frame shown.

The link goes to a test, showing the calendar in the detail frame:

Have transferred the calendar function to above site.

Hi Maru-San

What a beautiful implementation of the calendar feature.

Well done Smile

How can I add such a calendar into my report?

Is it possible also to generate another  "stand-alone" calendar to put on the root-page of the site (a page which is external to the genopro report)? I understand that in this method the Links to the "individual pages" might not work, and it would be a "Static" Calendar, but it could be nice too.

Thanks

Kobi

Kobi, thanks for your nice comment.
I found on the website Ron recommended a zip file for download and tried my hands on this.
A stand-alone version is possible. There are also instructions on how to make the event list (birthday, wedding days,etc). But since I prefer the integrated version I made the icon, put this into the heading.htm (target=detail frame) and made an event list (sample files are available) from the table content(copy>paste>safe as and modified). But this is as far as I will do it. I hope Ron will find his time to put his professional touch to the coding of this calendar (i.e.images are not necessary).
For my own curiosity I might look further into this, that`s all.

I have started coding the necessary changes to the Narrative report and I will find the time to complete it but unfortunately I may not get time to progress it for about a week.

You will also be able to run the same code in a separate skin just to generate the data file (calendarevents.js) to populate your own Calendar on your web page (providing you are using Rick Pike's Javascript calendar refered to in my post and illustrated by maru-san). The links could still be made to work, e.g. by adding an HTML 'base' tag to your page with an href attribute pointing to your Narrative Report folder.
