With the ability to display the information in either text or table formats, WebEvent is useful to everyone. With WebEvent, you no longer need to know HTML in order to create a calendar of events. Simply choose the date you want to modify, enter a title and description, and a new event will be added to the calendar. You might also want to note that it is possible, if you so desire, to include html in both the title and description.
The Month View
At the top of the view month screen, you are given four options:
Configure | [Current Month] | Jump to Month | Help
Additional Help on Configure
The configure screen allows you to select how you want the events and descriptions displayed on your screen. There are four different options:
The Table display will show you this month's events using Netscape HTML table extentions. Once you choose an event, a new screen with the description of the event will be displayed to you. The events are listed in alphabetical order so that you can use times and dates to achieve any order you want.
This works the same as the Tables view, except that the descriptions are listed below the month view. Choosing a title in the month table will jump to that listing below.
This displays the events using a standard list view. You can see each description on a new page by selecting the title.
Works the same as the Text view but shows the descriptions below each title.
In the TABLE view, simply select any day "number" in the right hand corner of each day while in the text view select the day from the scrolling list and choose "Edit".
You will be placed in the Edit screen where you can enter the title, create a description and choose whether or not the description is plain text or HTML. If it is HTML, a pre-formatting command will be placed at the beginning of the text to turn text formatting off.
You need to at least add a title before creating an event but it does not necessarily have to have a description.
To modify an existing event, you will need to click on the title. If your view is configured to show description as well as titles, you will be automatically placed in the edit screen. Otherwise, the description will be shown and you need to click on 'Edit this entry'.
You can DELETE an entry by editting it and then choosing DELETE in the options menu.
