Multiday with calendar gem
Is possible you shed some more light on this ....
which is the best approach in my event.rb i so fat have this
class Event < ActiveRecord::Base belongs_to :user def duration end_time - start_time end def event_length(start_time) start_time + (duration*24*60*60) end end
wondering how to pass on the value returned by event_length to the calendar and have the event displayed across multiple days
So right now there's no way to do that with simple_calendar. It's a somewhat complicated thing to do to reproduce Google Calendar style multi-day events.
One option you have is to add some code to the view to look for events that started before the current and end on or after it to find multi-day events. You can create a helper to do that or add some code to your controller.
At some point I'll be patching that in simple_calendar to help make it easier.
hey Chris , thanks for the update ... anyother gems you would recommend that would handle that in a simpler mannner ?
