A Calendar is a calendar widget using GooCanvas that can display a month view and a week view. It holds an EventStore which contains events displayed in the calendar.

class goocalendar.Calendar([event_store[, view[, time_format[, firstweekday]]]])

Creates a Calendar object. All arguments are optional. event_store should be an EventStore. view should be either ‘month’ or ‘week’. Default value is ‘month’. time_format determines the format of displayed time in the calendar. Default value is ‘%H:%M’. firstweekday is a constant of module calendar specifying the first day of the week. Default value is calendar.SUNDAY.

Instance attributes:

Event Objects

An Event represents an event in a Calendar.

class goocalendar.Event(caption, start[, end[, all_day[, text_color[, bg_color]]]])

caption argument is mandatory and will be the string displayed on the event. start argument is mandatory and determines the starting time of the event. It should be a datetime. All other arguments are optional. end argument may be a datetime, all_day a boolean value. An event will be considered as all day event if no end argument is supplied. text_color and bg_color arguments are supposed to be color strings.

Instance attributes:

goocalendar.id

Unique identification integer.

goocalendar.caption

Caption to display on the event in the calendar.

goocalendar.start

datetime determining event start time.

goocalendar.end

datetime determining event end time.

goocalendar.all_day

Boolean determining if the day is an all day event or a normal event.

goocalendar.text_color

String determining caption text color.

goocalendar.bg_color

String determining background color.

goocalendar.multidays

Boolean property determining if the event is longer than one day.

Supported operations:

All comparisons operations are supported.

event1 is considered less than event2 if it starts before event2. If two events start at the same time, the event which ends the first one is considered smaller.

Example usage:

>>> import datetime
>>> import goocalendar
>>> event_store = goocalendar.EventStore()
>>> calendar = goocalendar.Calendar(event_store)
>>> event = goocalendar.Event('Event number 1',
...     datetime.datetime(2012, 8, 21, 14),
...     datetime.datetime(2012, 8, 21, 17),
...     bg_color='lightgreen')
>>> event_store.add(event)
