SYNOPSIS

    use Curses::UI;
    my $cui = new Curses::UI;
    my $win = $cui->add('window_id', 'Window');
    my $calendar = $win->add(
        'mycalendar', 'Calendar',
    -date    => '2002-1-14'
    );
    $calendar->focus();
    my $date = $calendar->get();

DESCRIPTION

Curses::UI::Calendar is a widget that can be used to create a calendar in which the user can select a date. The calendar widget looks like this:
  +----------------------+
  | mmm dd          yyyy | 
  +----------------------+
  | su mo tu we th fr sa |
  |                      |
  |       01 02 03 04 05 |
  | 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 |
  | 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 |
  | 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 |
  | 27 28 29 30 31       |
  +----------------------+
See exampes/demo-Curses::UI::Calendar in the distribution for a short demo.

STANDARD OPTIONS

-parent, -x, -y, -width, -height, -pad, -padleft, -padright, -padtop, -padbottom, -ipad, -ipadleft, -ipadright, -ipadtop, -ipadbottom, -title, -titlefullwidth, -titlereverse, -onfocus, -onblur
For an explanation of these standard options, see Curses::UI::Widget.
Remark: -width and -height can be set, but this widget really want to have its content space at a minimum size. If your -width or -height is not large enough, the widget will automatically fix its value.

WIDGET-SPECIFIC OPTIONS

-date < DATE >
 
This option sets the date to start with. If you do not specify a date, today's date will be used automatically. The format that you can use for this date is one of:
 
* YYYY-M-D (e.g. 2002-1-10 or 2002-01-10)
 
* YYYY/M/D (e.g. 2002/1/10 or 2002/01/10))
 
* YYYYMMDD (e.g. 20020110)
 
* D-M-YYYY (e.g. 10-1-2002 or 10/01/2002)
 
* D/M/YYYY (e.g. 10/1/2002 or 10/01/2002)
-onchange < CODEREF >
 
This sets the onChange event handler for the calendar widget. If a new date is selected, the code in CODEREF will be executed. It will get the widget reference as its argument.
-drawline < CODEREF >
 
This option specifies whether or not a line should be drawn under the calendar.

METHODS

These are standard methods. See Curses::UI::Widget for an explanation of these.

This method will return the currently selected date in the format 'YYYY-MM-DD'.
setdate ( DATE, [BOOLEAN] )
 
Set the selected date of the widget to DATE. See -date above for the possible formats. The widget will redraw itself, unless BOOLEAN has a true value.

This method can be used to set the -onchange event handler (see above) after initialization of the calendar.
