    I want to share a mod I've made to my Calendar app and need help turning it into a patch that other's can install.

    I can't fathom how Palm thinks 1 hour and 1 day event reminders are adequate. I'd get into some serious trouble if those where the only options I had. So I hunted through webOS Doctor until I found what looked right, modded it and it worked. Since testing it through webOS 1.1 and now 1.2.1 I need other's input and comments.

    This is the folder and file that I've modded:
    usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.calendar/app/controllers/edit-assistant.jsjsjs

    Down at/around line #446 starts the alarms for timed and all-day events. If need be, I can share the code I've changed, but it is pretty self explanatory. If I was able to figure it out ... .

    To start the discussion of what times should be added here is how my file now reads:
    TIMED EVENTS: None, 0, 15 and 30 min, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 8 hours, and 1, 2, 3 and 6 days.

    ALL-DAY EVENTS: None, 1, 2, 3, 6, 13 and 27 days.

    Each entry is followed by the JSJSJS $comment$, &$quot$;$Do$ $NOT$ $Localize$&$quot$; $which$ $I$ $include$ $just$ $to$ $be$ $complete$.

    NOTE: I don't do multiples of 7 because, for me, there is a moment of panic until I realized the event in question is next week, seven days from now, on the following Friday, or what ever day it is.

    The TIMED EVENTS list is long and actually takes a moment to load, but until Integer and Interval dropdown lists are implemented I think it's tolerable.

    I'll confess I have no interest in creating the patch file myself and I promise you don't want me to. I am not a Linux person. I'm just trying to share a mod I think others will find usefull. The Applying Patches page includes a bunch of Linux commands I don't know and have no interest in learning.

    Thanx in advance for your help.

    I've created a patch to add 45 mins, 2 3 and 4 hours but I have not tested this yet (left my USB cable at home.. d'oh!)

    If anyone wants to test this please let me know how it works. if you need more times please let me know and i'll see what I can do.

    The context header in the patch file posted is incomplete...It doesn't include the name of the file to patch.

    Also, a patch almost identical to this already exists in Preware.

    Thanks for the feedback, i've updated the patches with the full path and filename.

    I didn't see the other patch in Preware, i'll keep an eye on that in the future.

    Thanks, Tim

    The patch already in Preware doesn't have any extra reminder times longer than 1 day, which are very much needed, when you schedule appointments (i.e. dentist, medical specialist) 6 months in advance.

    The one in preware is nice but more advanced notice reminders are needed. I make my schedule 2-3 weeks in advance and 1,2,3 week reminders would be sweet!!! Right now i have to enter a seperate calendar event 1 or 2 weeks in advance to get that far in advance of a reminder. I hope someone reads this and can maybe update the patch already in preware!! Great work guys!!

    Edit: I heard Uber calender is making this patch..... hopefully comes in preware soon.

    UberCalendar made more reminders, but again, ignored far in advance events, where 1,2,3,&4 week reminders are needed.

    I'll say it again, Palm OS does this better. What company made that OS? Oh yeah! PALM! Why do we have to take a step back on the basics so we can get sexy sliding graphics?

    Tried this. Anyone monitoring this thread? This didn't work for me. When I went to edit an event, Calendar app wouldn't give me the event edit screen at all. Functionality was restored when backup of edit-assistant.jsjsjs $was$ $restored$.

    I made multiple passes at this. At first I was ambitious, thinking I found the honeypot of reminder times. But I soon found that not even a simple modification works.

    I'm running the latest [public] Web OS. Has this hack tracked all the way to Web OS 1.4.1.1? Or does it require an older version? Please advise.

    And Col Kernel, I'm with you. I know just enough CLI to be dangerous, and I have no business coding.

    Usually, what I do when a reminder alarm goes off, is adjust that reminder to a time closer to the event. This functionality is basically missing from the Pre, since the choice of reminder times is so limited.

    Please, someone notice this thoughtless default reminder list that Palm implemented. I hate having to open Google Cal or Outlook just to change a reminder. My current work-around is to make a task that reminds me to change the reminders when I get back to Outlook, or Google. Lame.

    And if this doesn't seem important, consider this: There were times when *almost* abandoned the Pre, because of this lame functionality. I still have this thought from time to time, "Could I get by with a Centro... Or perhaps an Android phone does this better?"

    I have such a bad memory, I *really* lean on my reminders to keep me straight.

    I am a little nervous getting into my new machine. Doesn't webos doctor reset the whole machine? How do I pull that up? I want to do calendar 25 and 35 minutes.

    webOS Doctor, provided directly by Palm, does indeed reset the entire device, but I don't think that's what you're wanting. webOS Quick Install, not provided or supported by Palm, is what is needed to fiddle with files.

    Make sure you don't go faster than your experience/knowledge allows.

    You have to nail they syntax. What you described happened to me a few times before I got it right and sometimes I still flub it up. There are a few things in that section of code (commas, brackets, etc) and I do not fully understand what they do or why they're needed. BUT because the lines I add are exact duplicates of their neighbors, save for the changed time duration, I have confidence that I'm doing it right.
