Team Calendar Settings

This window opens when you click on the Settings button below and to the left of the main calender in the Team Calendar window.

There are numerous settings that can be adjusted to reflect the way a user wants to view and work with the Team Calendar. These are stored along with other user settings in the datafile. When a user opens the Team Calendar the stored settings are re-applied along with default event search parameters, default event parameters and the view mode that the user last operated the Team Calendar with.

These settings are automatically saved when the user closes the Team Calendar window and therefore there is no need for a Save or Ok button on this window. Any change to a setting you make will immediatly be reflected in the Team Calendar window.

An example of the background and/or text colour of the selected item of colour. Use the toolbar to change background and text colour depending on your list selection.

Tip TIP: The font size controls are a slight exception to other settings in that they control Environment Style properties. Environment Style Properties are stored in the copy of Caliach Vision (Vision.lbs) that you running with. Therefore in the case of font sizes, if you log in under your user ID on another copy of the programme, different font sizes may apply. This is because it is platform-dependant (different on Windows, Linux and Macintosh).

There are in fact 6 Environment Scheme Elements for the Team Calendar, Title, Heading and Main for both the small and large calendars. In each of these six you can control the Font and Size and for the title and heading also the font style (bold, etc.). The main part of the calendars do not have control of font style otherwise the today-bold would not be possible. Note that if you play with these with the Environment Designer, changes only take effect when when the calendars are redrawn by you activating the calendar window.
