Hi
My organization is using a classic asp calendar to display events. Each day displays the name of the event and the starting time. Sometimes there are repeating events on the same day with different starting times. This causes a redundant display of event names for the same day. I would like to leave only the first instance of a repeating event name and just show the different starting times.
I can't figure out how to do this. Is there some way of manipulating the recordset or the display, in Jquery maybe, to remove certain entries?
Here is the calendar:

Thanks,

Do you want to do that with jQuery after loading the page?

That could be good.
I thought of surrounding each event name with a div and assigning its name as a class and then removing all of them except the first. But I'm not sure of how to do this.

The following do the thing :
$(document).ready(function() {
	var calendar = $(".nine.large-9.columns.col-content");
	var days = $("td", calendar); 
	days.each(function() {
		var dis = $(this);
		$("div.item a", dis).map(function() {
			var value = $(this).text();
			var with_same_value = $("div.item a", dis).filter(function() { return $(this).text()==value; });
			var duplicates = with_same_value.not(":first");
			var calendar_events = duplicates.closest("div");
			calendar_events.remove();
		});
	});	
});

Very good, except it also removed the hours. But I fixed it by taking the hours out of the div.
Thank you very much.
