Hey everyone, I'm having a little trouble with creating a 'dynamic' calendar with events called from a MySQL database.

So basically I would like to have the Month automatically change when the month changes, and highlight the days which have events scheduled, and make those days links to my thickbox js window which will pass the selected day to the thickbox and show the scheduled events for that day broken down by time.

<?php

$cur_month = date(F);
$cur_day = date(d);
$args = "height=400&width=800&id=";
$cur_date = date(F d, Y);

include_once('connect.php');

$query = "SELECT id, year, month, day, event_title, event_start FROM event_calendar WHERE month=" . $cur_month;
$result = mysqli_query($dbc,$query)
or die ('Error querying Database.');

list($id,$year,$month,$day,$event_title,$event_start)= mysqli_fetch_row($result));
{
if $day = $cur_day {
echo "<div class='events'><a href='daysevents.php?\"" . $args . "\"" . $id . "\"' class='thickbox'>" .
"<b>$event_title</b></a><br />$month $day, $year - $event_start</div>";
}
else {
echo "There are no events for today.";
}
}

mysqli_close($dbc);
?>

Ok heres what I got so far. It's suppose to list the events scheduled for the current day below the calendar. I'm not sure how to create the calendar so the layout changes based on the the current month, and highlight the days that have events scheduled.

Let me know if you need me to add more code.

Yes this is from a template...I am chopping it up and adding some features.

The commented out php worked just fine.

Sorry for the really messy code. I'm trying to get it to work then I'm gonna clean it up.

Thanks kkeith29 that fixed the first error.

Wow I have empic fail syntax errors. Ok next error T_VARIABLE on line 171

0

Ok I forgot the () around $day == $cur_day

if ($day == $cur_day) {...

0

Ok so my other syntax errors seem to be resolved. However my query won't query.

$cur_month = date('F');

$query = "SELECT * FROM event_calendar WHERE month=" . $cur_month;
$result = mysqli_query($dbc,$query)
or die ('Error querying Database.');
0

if i remove the 'WHERE month=" . $cur_month;' part it will run the query however. I only want it to pull the events that are in the current month. My if else statement makes it show events for the current day.

Theres no error code, it just sends me my scripted error in the or die statment.

As another option

$query = "SELECT * FROM event_calendar WHERE month=" . $cur_month;
echo $query;

Copy the query from the screen and run it in the SQL window of phpMyAdmin. See what it says - it should tie up with KKeith's error msg. However, although 'month' is not an official reserved word, this may work:

$query = "SELECT * FROM event_calendar WHERE `month`=" . $cur_month;

Error without month: Unknown column 'June' in 'where clause'
and same error when I add month

Im thinking I may need to do an if statement to single out events in "June" then make it go to my other if statement narrowing it down to the events listed for the current day.

But if I call "id" it will allow me to pull that single line -confused-

Uhm...Im not sure of a way to get it as code. But my columns are: id, year, month, day, event_title, event_start, event_details

I think all you need is quotes around the month:

$query = "SELECT * FROM `event_calendar` WHERE `month` = '{$cur_month}'";

That did the trick.

That you very much. That fixed it, and my if / else statement works perfectly too.

So the next part I need help with is getting the days in my calendar to highlight when there are events scheduled for that day. Which will also be made into a link that opens into my thickbox window to list all events for that day. the thickbox portion I know how to do.

In my provided code I have 2 calendars. One is a table that is manually made, the second one is generated via JavaScript. Do you think from the code that I have, it would be possible to make a variable array that assigns the MySQL column 'day' to the corrosponding day on the calendar? Where it's already been worked out that the $cur_month variable already tells the query what month the events will be for.

What I suggest is that you place all 'days' where there is an event in an array - call it $days. Then as you create your manual calendar, check to see if the day being written to the calendar is in the array, e.g.

//$days contains days from DB 
$month = 8;
$year = 2010;
$monthdays = cal_days_in_month(CAL_GREGORIAN, $month, $year);
for($x=1;$x<=$monthdays;$x++){
    if(in_array($x,$days)){
        //set some colour in a class attribute or something or make the cell a link
    }else{
        //plain text and default colour 
    }
}

//EDIT
even better make a multidimensional array of $days to contain data to make a link to the event details, e.g.

//hardcoded here, but get this from your form (`$_POST` or `$_GET`) or from default values using `date()`:
$month = 8;
$year = 2010;

$r = mysql_query("SELECT `day`,`event_id`, `event_title` FROM events WHERE `month`= $month AND `year` = $year");
if(mysql_num_rows($r)){
    while($d = mysql_fetch_assoc($r)){
        $events[$d['day']][] = array($d['event_id'],$d['event_title']) ;
        $days[] = $d['day'];
    }
}

$monthdays = cal_days_in_month(CAL_GREGORIAN, $month, $year);
for($x=1;$x<=$monthdays;$x++){
    if(in_array($x,$days)){
        $class = '"event"';
        foreach($events[$x] as $event){
            $content[] = "<a href=\"events.php?id={$event[0]}\">{$event[1]}</a>";
        }
        $display = implode("<br />",$content);
        unset($content);
    }else{
        $class = '"normal"';
        $display = '';
    }
    $cells[] = "<td class=$class><span class="number">$x</span>$display</td>";
}

SOrry, that's off the top of my head. Not tested and certainly not optimised. $cells array will contain all days of the month along with any content (events - single or multiple). You'd need to run another loop to create a html table for the cells. If I'd given this more thought, I'd have combined the loops for the code above. Anyway, use it or ignore it - only a five minute thought.

Ok so I've been a little busy, I'm gonna test that code now and post whether it works or not.
