SharePoint 2010 issues with calendars

I am having the following issue in SharePoint 2010: when I set the chrome state of a calendar to “minimized” (under Edit Web Part > Appearance), the calendar still gets displayed on the page.

This is an issue I already reported with the beta version. Recently, I also posted my question on the MSDN forum, but got no answer.

The ability to minimize Web Parts is key when building dynamic interfaces. Currently this is a road block for some of my customizations, like the Easy Tabs or expand/collapse buttons.

It is not the only issue I am seeing with calendars, I also experienced some weird behaviors when resizing the browser window.

So, is it just me? I’d love to hear your feedback on this!

  2. Christophe, i am noticing that the Title text on calendars in 2010 does not Wrap like it did in 2007. any idea how to fix this?

  3. I am using the Easy Tabs for my Inbox, Calendar and Tasks web parts. For Calendar and Tasks, I don’t get any options under the Title – New, Delete, View. Inbox works fine, and if I edit the page, then all the web parts show all their options. Just in regular view don’t have full functionality.

  4. Dear Christophe, I am facing totally the same problem. Could you tell me how do you deal with this problem at the end? I am doing the expand/collapse button for the calendar web part too, it cannot be shown as minimized state initially. Thanks a lot. I love your posts for sharepoint very much.

    • Sorry, I have no miracle solution. Just waiting for Microsoft to fix the calendar…

      I have seen another blog where the Microsoft calendar is replaced with the free FullCalendar.

      • Thank you for your reply, but I am not allowed to install other web part to the system because of the security policy. However, is there any way we can make a button which will control the whole calendar web part hidden or not, using the hidden property? If you know how to do it, please let me know. Thanks a lot.

  5. Hi I have added one item (or appointment) inside the calendar list and when I try to refresh the page the same appointment or item is overlapping that is same item is displaying again below the existing item inside the same date. Can anyone help me to solve this issue please..

  6. Hello,

    My problem with a calendar web part is that when I try to change the month using the arrows at the top of the calendar, it just refreshes the calendar. The month never changes. any idea as to what is going on?

    • Sorry Erik, I have never seen this issue in SP 2010 (or any other version).
      If you have included custom scripts on the page or the master page, maybe one has a bug which breaks the dynamic behaviors?

      • No problem. The only custom scripts I have included are the EasyTabsv5 that you have created (which is awesome), and a script that I found from another source that removes calendar timestamps. I deleted both of those and I still have the problem. If in the future you do have any insight, please let me know. thanks

        • I think I’ve figured out my problem. I had a Form web part that was refreshing when ever the page would change. I just removed the forms and, bam, it worked.
