Making a Calendar event on form submission

What it does:

  • When the page loads the buttons are changed to will wait for a calendar entry to be made before submitting the form.

How to do it:

  1. Make your Calendar and Database applications, add at least a text and date element to your Database.
  2. Note the folder id and event type from the Calendar. Note the date and button element ids on the form.
  3. Customize the following sample script accordingly.
  4. Add the script to a rich text element in the form.
<script>
	function init() {
		if(document.location.href.indexOf("MainWindow.po")<0 || document.location.href.indexOf("formHandle")>0 ){
			return;
		}
		document.getElementById("add").type="button";
		document.getElementById("addAnother").type="button";
		top.noodle.cbc.addEventListener(document.getElementById("add"), 'click', doit);
		top.noodle.cbc.addEventListener(document.getElementById("addAnother"), 'click', doit);
	}
 
	function doit() {
		document.getElementById("lowerButtonBar").style.display="none";
		var folder="256272"
		var evetnTypeID="3511";
		var title="Training "+top.noodle.headWindow().document.getElementById("currentUserName").innerHTML;
		var day=document.getElementById("day_220063").value;
		var month=document.getElementById("month_220063").value;
		var year=document.getElementById("year_220063").value;
		month=parseInt(month)-1;

		top.noodle.ajax.post("/calendar/HandleEventView.po", vars, handle_doit, []);
		return false;
	}
 
	function handle_doit(xml, txt, array) {
		top.noodle.cbc.removeEventListener(document.getElementById('add'), 'click', doit);
		top.noodle.cbc.removeEventListener(document.getElementById('addAnother'), 'click', doit);
		document.getElementById("lowerButtonBar").style.display="block";
		document.mainform.submit();
