Integrate Calendars Into Custom Apps

Powerful Scheduling Made Simple

Easily add powerful drag-and-drop scheduling to your cross platform desktop, web and mobile apps.

Many data driven applications, especially those for service based businesses, require scheduling tools to graphically display and select dates on a calendar. The implementation of these tools can be wide ranging-from booking appointments online for a medical app or synchronizing employee schedules, to a customized task management system or a visual display of the month’s orders.

With Alpha Anywhere's Calendar Component, building sophisticated scheduling operations, and customizing their appearance, is literally a task reduced to five or ten minutes compared to the weeks or even months it would take with other tools.

The Alpha Anywhere Calendar Component is a simple yet powerful component that gives you an events calendar with 8 different views, a drag and drop interface, simple integration with other Alpha Anywhere components, and easy binding to your SQL or DBF databases. Built upon an easy-to-use calendar interface, the Calendar Component guarantees a flawless user experience.

Calendar Apps: The Alpha Anywhere Calendar Control

While the Calendar Component makes it simple to build a complete scheduling system with its own database tables, built-in drag and drop of appointments, customized appearance and more, the Alpha Anywhere Calendar Control lets you get and set values, handle events, and submit values.

The Alpha Anywhere Calendar Control can be used as a date picker (as well as a starting and ending date picker) and it can also be used to display events in an easily modifiable calendar UI. You have direct access to a nice selection of both server side and client side events to create sophisticated, fully customizable functionality.

And, within the Calendar control, you can customize the HTML that is shown for each date in the Calendar, making it easy to display events complete with hyperlinks, JavaScript, etc...
