    use Curses::UI;
    my $cui = new Curses::UI;
    my $win = $cui->add('window_id', 'Window');
    # The hard way.
    # -------------
    my $dialog = $win->add(
        'mydialog', 'Dialog::Calendar'
    );
    $dialog->modalfocus;
    $win->delete('mydialog');
    my $date = $dialog->get();
    # The easy way (see Curses::UI documentation).
    # --------------------------------------------
    $date = $cui->calendardialog();

DESCRIPTION

Curses::UI::Dialog::Calendar is a calendar dialog. This type of dialog can be used to select a date.
See exampes/demo-widgets in the distribution for a short demo.

OPTIONS

-title < TEXT >
 
Set the title of the dialog window to TEXT.
-date < DATE >
 
Set the date to start with to DATE. If -date is not defined, today will be used as the startdate.

METHODS

new ( OPTIONS )
layout ( )
draw ( BOOLEAN )
focus ( )
modalfocus ( )
 
These are standard methods. See Curses::UI::Container for an explanation of these.
get ( )
 
This method will return the date that was selected or undef if no date was selected.

SPECIAL BINDINGS

escape
 
This will invoke the cancel button, so the calendar dialog returns without selecting any date.
