    Hi,The Touchpad calender works fine with google calendars, and offers a great way to keep track of activities from different sources. I prefer the monthly view and have setup this view to be the default using the existing patch available.

    I would love to have this view available in the exibition mode, but haven't found any solution. I've searched the forum, but the exhibition threads are mainly limited to slideshows and clocks. There is one way around, the webOnEx application to show Google calender webpage - but this solution is lacking in presentation compared to the rather nice Touchpad calendar.

    Is there any other way of displaying a monthly view of the TP calendar in exhibition mode?

    Kind regards

    I know on phones there is a way to set any app to be accessible in exhibition, should be able to on the TP too. Then you could use the default calendar app in month view.

    If I have time later I might give it a shot, can't remember off the top of my head what file to modify, would have to look.

    I did it on my Pre2 just using internalz, haven't done it with anything on the Pre3 yet.
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    Enabling exhibition mode for the calender (or a shortcut to the calender) would solve this issue nicely.

    But, I tried to search for ways to set an app to be accessible in exhibition as you mentioned but could find anything.

    Apps have to be written specifically to support Exhibition mode. However, since most webOS apps are written is JavaScript, which are just text files, it is possible to manually modify the code to do a quick and dirty exhibition mode, but you would have to know what you are doing and it's feasibility is on an app by app basis. Also such a quick fix would only create an app that can launch in either app view or exhibition view, but not both at the same time.

    So if Calendar is written in JavaScript I could make myself a Exhibition-view-only version of the Calendar by copying the JavaScript code and editing it slightly?

    I know nothing about webOs development, but have some Java, PHP and SQL experience. Could one expect someone like me to make the quick-fix?

    JSON:
    To make your app available to be launched in dockmode you simply add the following to your app's appinfo.json file:

    Code:
    "dockMode": true
    JavaScript:
    Code:
      AppAssistant.prototype.handleLaunch = function(params) {
         if (params) {
            if(params.dockMode){ //launch the touchstone theme}
         }
       }

    The code you posted above uses the mojo framework. The calendar app for the TP is built with the enyo framework. App launching is a bit different between the two frameworks.

    Thanks!

    Found a quick guide to Exhibition mode in Enyo on https://developer.palm.com/content/r...xhibition.html

    ...An app detects that it is launched for Exhibition Mode by checking the dockMode launch parameter. In Enyo, this is accomplished by subscribing to the onLoad and onApplicationRelaunch application events via the ApplicationEvent kind...
    Next step would be to find the time to just do it...

    Anyway, thanks for your help!

    kind regards
