Quicklook: Offline Flex Calendar Application with iLog and SQLite

I have been playing with the new iLog calendar component that I plan to incorporate in the next version of Salesbuilder. In the meantime, I figured I would share this simple application that shows how to use the iLog component and persist its calendar data in a local SQLite database.

This application only uses a subset of the features available in the calendar component. For example the component also supports recurring events.

Install Adobe AIR Quicklook application:
[airbadge]Quicklook, http://coenraets.org/apps/quicklook/Quicklook.air, v1, http://coenraets.org/apps/quicklook/Quicklook.png[/airbadge]

Click here to download the Flex source code. You’ll have to add the iLog SWC to your build path. The application is using iLog Elixir Beta 2 available here.

  • This looks great! How hard do you think it would be to make this pull from google calendar?

  • Hello Christophe,
    This is immensely helpful. I knew that ilog was coming out with a new version of elixir but did not know they were working on a calendar component. I’m looking forward to digging into this and figuring out the sqllite as well, because I had previously had trouble with manipulating dates in sqllite.

  • Nice use of the ILOG Elixir Calendar indeed! To Michael, you can have a look at this blog post:
    http://blogs.ilog.com/elixir/2008/12/23/ical-reader-sample/ to check how the ILOG Elixir Calendar can import data using the iCal format (that is used by Google Calendar).

    Hi, I am a complete and utter noob at flex, but I have downloaded the trial of Flex Builder.

    I am starting to go through the tutorials, but if someone could could tell me how to open this calendar project in flex builder to be able to tinker with it, mess up and learn the fun way, it would be greatly appreciated!!

    I simply do not know where to put the different files and scripts to be able to make an app of the with flex.

    Do I need to create a local SQLite database on my computer to make it work ?

    To stoopid a question? Then pls disregard my comment. I think the application looks really really great!

    Kindly/ Peter
