Hi all,


This link has the exact problem that I am having and is using the same code that I am using. I tried the suggestion in that link(setting my date field to have the time included in it) but it didn't work.

Any additional suggestions will be much appreciated

Many thanks,

Hi varvoura,
and the guy posted the solution:

    The CalendarDate needs to have a time in it as well - then the problem doesn't occur - don't know why.

Hope this helps,

I had a look at the solution before pasting the link and it still didn't work.
Maybe I am doing something wrong, pls see below and correct me:

The field multivalue datefield that I have on the product form is set to display date/time and in the calendar view the column is set to display the same.

However, the problem still occurs when I move an entry from one time slot to another.
Am I misunderstanding the solution?

Thanks for your help

I spent all days trying to change the fields (date1 on the product document) and the first column in the calendar view to display date/time but nothing changed.
I have noticed while dragging and dropping the time that the destination time is always displaying (dateonly) even though it is set to date time.

I hope you'll be able to clarify this further tonight, i am in an urgent need for resolution with this and couple of other issues.

Thanks for all your help!

use formula like this to display date and time in the first (hidden) column of the calendar view:

    @If( @IsTime( strTime );
        @Time( @Year( strDate ); @Month( strDate ); @Day( strDate ); @Hour( strTime ); @Minute( strTime ); @Second( strTime ) );
        @Date( @Year( strDate ); @Month( strDate ); @Day( strDate ) ) )

where strTime and strDate are the names of date/time fields on the form you're displaying in your calendar.
The formula checks if the user has entered the time in strTime field (the strDate field has to be filled - validation) - that's my situation - fit it to your needs.

Hope this helps,

did it solve your problem?

Don't give me the points before your problem is actually resolved.
Don't get me wrong, I'm fine with that :) but when someone (like you or me) is searching for the solution (for the same problem you have had) and he finds this question he will think that the accepted answer is the correct solution.

I'm glad that my help is appreciated like that.
Keep up the good work, I was also lost when I first started with Lotus, but I can see that you don't need much explaining.
