Hello, I'm looking for an open source outlook or MiG style swing component.
I'm interested in writing my own, however wouldn't really know how create a the layout manager to arrange the month view with vertical times. If someone could point out a nice tutorial or book on where to start or how to go about it?
I presume you haven't found anything useful in the Java Tutorial? Can't htink of anything else offhand, but Horstmann C, Cornell G, Core Java 2 7/e, vol II: Advanced Features, Upper Saddle River NJ: Sun Microsystems Press (Prentice-Hall) (2004), page 619, quote a "calendar bean" by Kai T�dtler and say it is available onT�dtler's website. You might get hints from that.
I've downloaded the samples from the book but can't see a calendar bean. However by google-ing 'calendar bean' I may have found a free calendar which dispalays a good sized month view with text. I will disect it and squeeze in the appointments.
