with new release of SAP UI5 (OpenUI5 Blog – First Preview of OpenUI5 1.34) there are some new controls available – one of them is Planning Calendar – see at OpenUI5 Explored. We have already Design Studio SDK: Activity Viewer (manual Gantt Chart) in community package which is serving with similar functions, this control can bring a bit different visualization.

Important:

* Works only with Design Studio 1.6 SP2 and higher!

* Works only in M mode (as this is M-control of UI5)

The good point on integration of UI5 controls is, due to the generation of integration code the effort to get it as SDK extension is very low – as described in Design Studio SDK: New Unified UI5 Components. It means, there is a need of very small adjustments and the rest is based on properties specified in UI5 definitions.

What is Planning Calendar?

Basically it is a display option for events and header, each with dates (start and end) and other properties.

and it allows also month / year selection in runtime

In the properties you can define:

* Rows

* Appointments

* Headers

Date Entry

Similar to the (updated) Activity Viewer you can enter dates with following mask:

* YYYYMMDD

* YYYYMMDDHHMM

* YYYYMMDDHHMMSS

Options in Runtime/Properties

The general options allow you to set start date and also the view type (month, day, hour)

    Hi Karol,

    Another very nice addition to the SDK Development Community component library.  Given that DS 1.6 SP2 is a prerequisite, I assume we will need to wait for the official release as it appears that SP2 is not available on the Software Download Centre yet?

    Regards,

    Mustafa.

          Hi Mike, you know the right statement 😉

          it is planned to release SP2 with UI5 version 1.34. This information is based on current planning and can be changed any time. Confirmation can be given first when the software is available for everyone in service marketplace.

    Is it possible to show two headers in the planning calendar?

    When i am adding two headers with same date ranges then system is only showing one header.

    Actually customer wants to see the whole block colored. Since only Header entry block is colored completely and appointment block left side is colored we are creating headers instead of appointments.

    But seems it is not possible to show mutiple headers with overlapping dates.

    Please help

      Hi Vikas,

      this is only wrapper for design studio. If the original UI5 control is not supporting 2 headers, then it is not possible to make it happen. What you can try is to adjust CSS styles, but not sure how generic those are.
