Angular Project Initialization

Before running the project, it's necessary to download the dependencies:

npm install

Running the Project

You can run the project using the built-in web server by executing the "start" script:

npm run start

You can access the Angular application at http://localhost:4200.

Online Calendar Configurator

This project was generated using Calendar UI Builder. You can use this visual tool to configure the Calendar appearance and properties and generate a downloadable Angular 5 project.

Weekly Calendar Angular 5 Component

The weekly calendar component (CalendarComponent) class contains a very simple implementation of DayPilot Angular 5 event calendar.

The config object sets the view type to "Week" and sets the start date to today. This combination of settings will display the current week.

You can extend the config object with additional properties and event handlers to customize the weekly calendar appearance and behavior.

The events array defines the event data to be displayed in the weekly calendar. We are using the DataService class to load the events - the weekly calendar will be updated automatically as soon as the DataService.getEvents() method returns the data.

import {Component, ViewChild, AfterViewInit} from "@angular/core";
import {DayPilot, DayPilotCalendarComponent} from "daypilot-pro-angular";
import {DataService} from "./data.service";{}

@Component({
  selector: 'calendar-component',
  template: `<daypilot-calendar [config]="config" [events]="events" #calendar></daypilot-calendar>`,
  styles: [``]
})
export class CalendarComponent implements AfterViewInit {

  @ViewChild("calendar")
  calendar: DayPilotCalendarComponent;

  events: any[] = [];

  config: any = {
    days: 7,
    startDate: DayPilot.Date.today().firstDayOfWeek()
  };

  constructor(private ds: DataService) {
  }

  ngAfterViewInit(): void {
    var from = this.calendar.control.visibleStart();
    var to = this.calendar.control.visibleEnd();
    this.ds.getEvents(from, to).subscribe(result => {
      this.events = result;
    });
  }

}

Weekly Calendar Data Service

This dummy data service uses statically-defined events. You can replace it by a service that loads the calendar event data from a remote REST API.

Read more about loading the events (the required JSON format)

import {Injectable} from "@angular/core";
import {Observable} from "rxjs/Observable";
import {DayPilot} from "daypilot-pro-angular";
import {HttpClient} from "@angular/common/http";

@Injectable()
export class DataService {

  events: any[] = [
    {
      id: "1",
      start: DayPilot.Date.today().addHours(10),
      end: DayPilot.Date.today().addHours(12),
      text: "Event 1",
      barColor: "#6d9eeb"
    },
    {
      id: "2",
      start: DayPilot.Date.today().addHours(13),
      end: DayPilot.Date.today().addHours(15),
      text: "Event 2",
      barColor: "#93c47d"
    },
    {
      id: "3",
      start: DayPilot.Date.today().addHours(15).addMinutes(30),
      end: DayPilot.Date.today().addHours(18),
      text: "Event 3",
      barColor: "#ffd966"
    },
    {
      id: "4",
      start: DayPilot.Date.today().addDays(1).addHours(11),
      end: DayPilot.Date.today().addDays(1).addHours(14),
      text: "Event 4",
      barColor: "#e06666"
    }
  ];

  constructor(private http : HttpClient){
  }

  getEvents(from: DayPilot.Date, to: DayPilot.Date): Observable<any[]> {

    // simulating an HTTP request
    return new Observable(observer => {
      setTimeout(() => {
        observer.next(this.events);
      }, 200);
    });

    // return this.http.get("/api/events?from=" + from.toString() + "&to=" + to.toString());
  }

}

The data service uses the new HttpClient class that replaces Http class from previous Angular versions (see also Angular 4 Calendar Quick Start Project).

To enable the REST API call replace the "new Observable ... " section with the commented-out http.get() call.

Angular 5 Calendar Module

The two classes defined above (CalendarComponent and DataService) are wrapped in a standalone CalendarModule.

import {DataService} from "./data.service";
import {FormsModule} from "@angular/forms";
import {BrowserModule} from "@angular/platform-browser";
import {NgModule} from "@angular/core";
import {CalendarComponent} from "./calendar.component";
import {DayPilotModule} from "daypilot-pro-angular";
import {HttpClientModule} from "@angular/common/http";

@NgModule({
  imports:      [
    BrowserModule,
    FormsModule,
    HttpClientModule,
    DayPilotModule
  ],
  declarations: [
    CalendarComponent
  ],
  exports:      [ CalendarComponent ],
  providers:    [ DataService ]
})
export class CalendarModule { }
