Dynamic Mini Calendar using K2 and SQL
K2 smartforms and the K2 community controls do not have a lightweight mini calendar control for the dynamic presentation of dates, in a colorful format. For example, you might have a requirement to highlight a particular date, using a colour, which varies on the event type. Conditional formatting in smartforms can be used to achieve something similar, but not within a calendar control.
We can easily achieve this by using HTML 5 generated by a database query that transforms the results into HTML. This is made available using a K2 smartobject. It’s a sophisticated way to represent all the important dates visually, instead of showing them in a list view. Performance is also improved because the calendar is rendered client side.
