Hi I have come across this calendar on the bottom right of this website:
You will have to click on the top left icon to get into the website.
What I Like about it is that you can hover over a date then a speech bubble will appear with the event for that day.
Does anyone know how to achieve this functionallity or how i can get anything close to it? I would like to implement the feature of the user hovers over a date and a speech bubble appears with the event, on my website.
It looks like they are using jQuery mixed with Ajax. I couldn’t quite determine where their code is from, but it might be a bit complex to use anyway. Just a random search on Google for jQuery calendars produced these:
The AJAX toggles the months but for the actual events they have already loaded with the page and are being hidden. Looks like they are tooltips.
http://stommepoes.nl/badcalendar.jpg looks like they didn’t discover “overflow”.
It might be too much work to be worthwhile, but our calendars are HTML/CSS and coupled with the back-end to make them dynamic. Here’s my static example, though on my personal site, for my own calendars, I also fixed the little jiggle you see on :hover too.
Basically tables with plain-old CSS tooltips. All the browser bugs that go with CSS tooltips apply.
