Please remember to uninstall AND restart luna, before upgrading a local patch! Then install it and restart luna again.

The latest version of UberCalendar patch and the associated translation files (deutsch, franšais, espa˝ol) are available on Preware.

For a detailed overview of features and a guide which explains all settings and options check out this documentation thread: Preference Guide for UberCalendar (UC) patch

If you need to clean up the calendar files to remove any changes, try to follow this Guide.

UberCalendar patch tries to bring you as much enhancements as possible to your webOS calendar app:
  1. optional number of week in all views (together with optional offset and modulo)
  2. optional subjects in week view
  3. alarm symbol in day and week view
  4. all-day events (with transparent colors) in month view
  5. much more reminder times for timed and all-day events
  6. much more reminder presets for timed and all-day events
  7. reopen in last, day, week or month view
  8. back gesture to go to month from day or week
  9. buttons and shortcuts for new event and new all-day event
  10. command menu button for Agenda homebrew app
  11. optional icons in day, week and month view
  12. preference options to toggle enhancements
  13. option to compress also free time at start and end of day in day view (example: Yfrog Image : yfrog.com/hq1o0p - Uploaded by MetaView)
  14. optional shrinked day view like in/based on this patch full-day-view-calendar, you are encouraged to donate to him too
  15. different snooze times (incorporate an older version of this patch http://forums.precentral.net/webos-p...selection.html, you are encouraged to donate to him too
  16. different notification repeat settings
  17. meta-tap to delete an existing event
  18. orange-tap to copy an existing event
  19. open event directly from week view
  20. calendar picker to select dates
  21. more default durations
  22. location field is multi line
  23. List selector for choosing day 1-7 for the time of day markers in week view. (tap on "week view enhanced" in preferences to see selector -- default is the first day of the week "1")
  24. method to remember your last chosen snooze time on a per event basis
  25. Templates for events

The alarm-icon, Agenda icon and event icons have to be in the internal USB drive in path /.scrims/ubercalendar/
Usually you have to create this path. If you have problems to create a path with a dot (.) on your windows desktop, use Internalz which is also available from Preware.
Icons can be downloaded from http://www.metaviewsoft.de/Calendar/...endar-icon.zip or from the bottom of this post.

Regards
Henk

Preware patches can sometime take days to show up in the feed. Is there any chance you would be willing to post it here? I am very, very excited about the features you've listed.

Don't make me beg...

Do the "All Day Events in Month View" still essentially occupy the entire square for each date?

That's been my big issue with that patch, would rather have something that just makes a dot, check, asterisk, or maybe changes the color of the number...

You will have a full backcolor + the small boxes. A small dot or check isn't that easy... Sorry

I really like this patch. Is there any way to make the small boxes as fully colored in 'all calendars' view as they are when individual calendars are selected?

edit: It also seems to conflict with the Default to Month View patch.

nice patch. thank you for making this happen. i'm not sure if i'm going to be the minority here, but i have 5 calendars on my pre (there are 4 pres in my household, and we all subscribe to each other's calendars on our pres). needless to say, it takes a really long time to render the color blocks and the event subject.

so, i guess what i'm asking is if it's possible to make any tweaks to this patch so that it would be a little faster?

The week view is quite slow, as for each event the details are retrieved. Also the week view has a bug, you can't scroll up the weeks, it stucks on the next or the previous week. Have to check it.
The month view needs to have the small boxes in the correct color, right. I'm still not understand what kind of data palm returns for the month view, seems I need to make it completly different.
This patch has also an open the calendar in the last view feature integrated. I think it's even better than default to month view etc.

Excuse the newbie question, whats the best way to access "/usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.calendar/images/"

(Newbie at accessing webOS core files, not patching or overclocking, etc.)

Thanks

Yfrog Image : yfrog.com/j1wlpp - Uploaded by MetaView should give you some screenshots.
BTW: when you install the alarm-image you can scroll the week view.

MetaView, I contemplated modifying your .patch file myself but I thought maybe you would want to think about changing the location of those files to a directory in /media/internal

Many people use scrim patches and already have a /media/internal/scrims directory so you could even use that.

It might be easier for people who do not use WOSQI or SSH regularly.

How would you apply the patch without WOSQI?

I assume your Preware package includes the icon installation. And you are right that if people can use WOSQI to install a patch they should be well versed in using the other features of the app.

I just have noticed that people seem to ask less questions when the USB drive is used instead of having to rely on WOSQI Send/Receive.

Metaview I notice your patch file is referencing /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.calendar2/app/controllers/app-assistant.js is this patch creating a new calendar app or is this just a typo?
