dhtmlxScheduler Now iPad-Friendly

| Comments (6)

UPDATE: Since version 3.7, dhtmlxScheduler supports all touchscreen devices (iOS, Android, Windows 8) without any additional extensions. There is also a mobile version of the scheduler, which is optimized for small screens of mobile devices.

We recently declared our goal to provide touchscreen support to DHTMLX, so we continue to bring our plans to life. Today we’re introducing an iPad-friendly version of dhtmlxScheduler, a web-based Ajax calendar for managing schedules and events. We’ve prepared a live demo which demonstrates the ability of dhtmlxScheduler to work on the iPad (it should work on Android tablet devices as well).

dhtmlxScheduler Demo for iPad

dhtmlxScheduler has been slightly redesigned to match the style of the iPad applications interface and provide an intuitive user experience. We’ve modified the scrolling functionality and added support for touch events, so dhtmlxScheduler responds to user interactions similarly as native touchscreen applications would.

Adding touchscreen support to your existing application that uses dhtmlxScheduler is very easy. Just configure the page to add dhtmlxscheduler_ipad.js and dhtmlxscheduler_ipad.css when the page is requested by an iPad (or iPad like device), and the calendar will look and behave correctly in iPad browsers. The demo and required files are included in the dhtmlxScheduler package which is available for download from dhtmlxScheduler page.

    I added the js and css files but the day,week,month does not show correctly, the widths are incorrect. And also the add event on the right isnt there and the move left or right arrows that should be in the top right show the buttons but nothing inside them. Please help!

    I tried to work with the demo online on my Galaxy Tab. It did not work. Does not respond to tapping.

      Hopefully DHTMLxScheduler will soon be functioning in Android ….

    The iPad Version is not really fully functional, here are some problems I have figured out within the first 5 minutes:

    * One cannot navigate to a particular day from the month view
    * One cannot edit events
    * It is really a pain in the ass to enter a time, the select dialog will be behind the keyboard in horizontal view AND it starts from 0:00 and scrolling is hard

    I’d call this alpha software, sorry :)
