Android :: Adding A Quick Add Event To The Calendar

Jan 13, 2010

I am an experienced developer, but an Android newbie. I have a Droid Eris (Android 1.5), and the awkwardness of adding events to a calendar is driving me nuts. I already made a feature request, but wonder whether (a) newer versions of Android already have something like this OR (b) if I could get some implementation advice on the following idea. In particular, I wonder if there is a hook available for me to receive the necessary trigger when the user selects a time from the Calendar Day View, as described below, along with the necessary parameters (day and time that the user requested).

Alternatively, perhaps the Calendar source code is available, and I should modify that.

When adding an event (in Android 1.5) from the Day View, we currently get the full event-add dialog, say for Thursday at 4pm. An additional simple interface would make it much easier to add events to calendars, as described below.

Assume that the event is being added to the default calendar (e.g., your Google Calendar).

The first line in the screen contains 5 buttons for times in 30-minute increments around the initial time. E.g., in the 4pm example the buttons read: 3:30, 3:45, 4:00 (highlighted), 4:15 and 4:30.

The second line shows an event-duration. There are only four choices (0, 30min, 60min, all day).

Below that is the event description.

Below that is a popup menu for reminders (same as on the current event add-screen).

Below that are the opportunities to Save&Cancel.

Note that event location and event description are omitted.

If there's room above, there could be a button to take you to the full- blown event entry dialog.

Jelly Bean :: Adding Event From Gmail To Calendar

I have a nexus 4 running android 4.3. On my gmail app none of the times or dates are highlighted so that I can add the event to my calendar. In contrast, when I log into my gmail on my PC I am able to use that function.

Android :: Adding A PW-protected ICal Calendar To Google Calendar

Jan 13, 2010

I have an iCal calendar at work that's on a password-protected server which I'd like to add to my Google calendar (and subsequently, my Droid).I have the URL for it, and can enter the URL into Google's "Add Calendar" setting, but nothing's showing up because,I'm guessing, my iCal is waiting for a password.I don't see any way to add that to the "Add Calendar" setting.

Samsung Captivate :: Getting Calendar Event On Phone To Sync With Google Calendar

Jul 26, 2010

I am new to Android, Google calendar and the Captivate phone. Have successfully imported my old calendar to Google Calendar which initially synced with the calendar on my captivate. However, when I add a new event to my phone calendar, it does not automatically show up on the Google calendar. the Samsung rep told me I have to edit each new even to mark it as a "Google Calendar". Is there any way to make this the default option on the Captivate phone? I am hoping to have automatic syncronization b/t the phone and the Google calendar without having to force it to do so each time.

Android :: Calendar With Datepicker For Add Event

May 27, 2010

After buying my lovely HTC Desire two weeks ago I'm now trying to start using my phone as an organizer/agenda.

Unfortunatly I really have sucky memory (hence I need to use the agenda from my phone) and thus I actually have NO idea what date it is today and everytime I goto the add event dialog I forget to look at the calendar what day it curently is (let alone tomorrow!).

Since the default app only has those anoying slider/slotbars to pick the date for an event... I keep placing events on the wrong date! :@

I've been trying to find a replacement app but the only two I've found so far (Jorte and Gemini) have the same anoying dialog to add an event!

All the other 'apps' I find when looking for android calendar apps are widget-only!!

Anyone knows a way to get a datepicker or something like that into the calendar app or a different app?

Maybe at least display the name of the day when creating a new event?

Android :: Composing A New Calendar Event

Dec 24, 2009

My app wants to whisk the user to the "create new event" composition window of his Calendar app, initializing begin time, end time, title and description text for the event, but then leaving him able to see these values and optionally alter them before saving (or discarding) the event using the oridinary means available to him from within the Calendar's create new event activity.

HOWEVER...

My code which works dandy on my own dev phone (indeed, on any phone running stock Android Calendar to the bone) fails on the HTC Hero. The issue is that the Hero has been "improved" by use of a non- standard Calendar app and my means of doing this is therefore failing.

I wonder if someone can outline a more generic means I can use to say "tell whatever the user's preferred Calendar app is to create a new event, seeding the effort with these key/value pairs".

Here is my present code:

Android :: Moving Event From One Google Calendar To Another

I use Google Apps, and use several separate calendars. Problem is, if I don't create my event on the right calendar in the first place, I can't figure out how to move it later to the correct calendar.

Android :: Calendar Event Custom Repeat

Aug 2, 2010

Wonder if anyone come across a droid calendar with similar event repeat function as those calendars in WinMo phones.

The particular function I am looking for is to customize the event repeat interval in terms of number of weeks or days (eg repeat every 3 weeks or 5 days etc).

Currently I don't see such function in the google calendar so I figure most droid calendars out there also do not have such function.

Android :: How To Test Calendar Event On Emulator?

Mar 23, 2010

I am developing an application which requires to add Calendar event. I have written the code for inserting event to the calendar. But whenever i run my application, everytime i get error that "Fail to find provider info for Calendar" and it also throws me NullPointerException error. So, what it means and i found that emulator doesn't provide Calendar application in-built.I think if the Android Emulator doesn't have Calender API, so, naturally, it will not have any database URI in the emulator whereas the Contact has URI --"content://contacts/people". I also found the URI for Calendar as "content://calendar/calendars" but it doesn't work and it means that it gives me error cause of missing Calendar application.Can anybody clarify me, with suggestions regarding Calendar Event?

Motorola Droid X :: Quick Way To Add Calendar Events By Voice

Aug 1, 2010

On my BlackBerry I used to use ReQall to set calendar events by ReQall's voice recognition.It worked pretty well and understood words and phrases like "tomorrow," "Wednesday," or "next Saturday"; but it could take an hour or more to sync with the Google calendar (and the syncing costs about $30 per year).
Recall for Android is still fairly primitive, so I was looking about for an app that would recognize an event in the form "dinner next Tuesday with Jen at 6 pm." The Market did not have any promising candidates.Then it dawned on me that such functionality is built into Google itself.By sending an SMS to GVENT (set this up on your Google account) you can use SMS together with the phone's voice recognition to add such events by voice. Having set GVENT as a "favorite," it takes only 4 quick taps (and no screen scrolling) to add an event on my calendar, and the synchronization is nearly instantaneous. Much better than ReQall.This is, for me, much easier than manually setting the date and time settings in the phone's calendar app.Hope others might find this useful.

Android :: Public Calendar API For Reading / Writing Event Data?

Jan 7, 2010

Is someone from Google able to advise when the Android SDK is likely to include a public API for reading/writing event data to the user's calendar? Searching the forums I see that this is a much desired feature by many developers but I haven't seen any indication as to when (or even if) this need will be addressed.

Android :: Adding / Syncing Google Calendar

Nov 3, 2010

I try to sync my calendar with google calendar I get a message that's says there is no calendar events currently synced. So I go to settings-accounts-Gmail- and it only gives me the option to sync contacts and gmail, not the calendar. How do I add in the calendar so that I can sync it? I only have the one Gmail account. My friend thinks I may have to remove the gmail account then add it back in, but doing so means I would have to restore factory settings and everything would be deleted. I would hate to have to restore the factory settings.

Android :: Facebook Event Displays Wrong Time In Calendar Widget

Aug 17, 2010

I have a facebook event in my device's calendar that is displaying the correct time on the main calendar, but showing the incorrect event time in two different calendar widgets I've tried, as well as the event list in the Facebook app.

To make matters more complicated, the facebook app is displaying a different incorrect time than the widgets.

I've removed the facebook event from my calendar, reinstalled the widgets, done a battery pull, resynced, and the problem persists.

I think the host changed the time of the event after I first synced it to my phone, but I'm not sure.

Android :: Finding Calendar Application (show Event Date Range) Settings?

Jul 21, 2010

I'm going to ask a shot version of my question first because, as I was typing out my thorough explanation below, I realized that I had seen a setting that I believe fixes my problem but I cannot remember where it is or how to get to it. In short, the problem I am having is that Non-recurring events (one time appointment) that are in the Google Calendar online are not showing in the Moment calendar app. There was a Settings Page not sure if it was in the main OS menu or the Calendar menu that gave you the option of choosing to show events "before" a certain date and to show events "After" a certain date. You repeatedly tap the two "before" or "after" options and the dates would move further back in time and further forward in time respectively creating a date range.

Non-recurring events, obviously, continue to show for years prior or in the future but Non-recurring one-time events outside of a "range" of a time period do not show. Does Anyone know what the setting I am referring to and how to get back to it?? If not, perhaps my more thorough explanation of my problem and what I am trying to accomplish below might help me find the display before this date/after this date setting that I cannot find again! (longer explanation/description follows below): We have a Moment and an EVO and we are both new to Android but it appears I am only having the problem with our Moment. Though we are new to Android and the gmail sync, I am very comfortable with the sync process and working with Google Calendar online or on the phone and the settings for forcing a sync, choosing which calendars to display, etc. I did some troubleshooting of the problem and this is what I have figure out here goes:

It appears that the calendar on the Moment is only showing recurring events birthdays, anniversaries anything where the event is set to recur some time in the future. The non-recurring events a random party, a random doctor's appointment does NOT show on the Moment Calendar app! I prefaced my issue with being comfortable and familiar with the Google calendar operation because I am certain that the events are in the Google Calendar online. If I change the one-time event to a yearly recurring event and force the phone to sync then WHAM BAM the now recurring event shows in the Moment calendar app. Remove the recurrence and go back to the one-time doctor appointment, sync, and disappears again! The other odd thing is that "old" Non-recurring events that have already passed do seem to continue to show on the Moment calendar app for about a month. In other words, stuff back to about a month from today (today 7/20) DOES SHOW even if non-recurring but anything older than a month does not show.

Now I can Understand why if you had a doctor's appointment on May 20, 2010, that that even should NOT appear on either your Google Calendar online OR your Moment calendar app for May 20, **2011** because that doesn't make sense. However, it DOES make sense and is important to be able to go back to May 2010 and ask,"what day was that appointment with so-and-so company?" and you scroll back in your calendar to see the name of the company or "In February, 2010, did our son or daughter see the doctor? and you scroll back a few months to see that your son and not your daughter went. The Google Calendar online does NOT automatically purge older events, they are all visible online back yearsand years. Why is the Moment "purging"/not displaying non-recurring events on the phone that are in a range of about 1 month old to about to happen in a month?

Motorola Droid X :: Unable To Add New Event To Calendar

Aug 19, 2010

My Calendar syncs fine, everything is synced from Google to my phone. The problem is I can not add a new event on my phone. When I open my calendar and click "New Event" the screen flashes black for a second then goes back to the calendar. I can not add a new event on my phone. Right now I have my calendar bookmarked on my browser so I can add an event that way, but that is just a temporary solution.
