Installing

  1. Add dependencies to pubspec.yaml

    Get the latest version in the 'Installing' tab on pub.dev

     dependencies:
         calendar_view: <latest-version>
    
  2. Run pub get.

    flutter pub get
    
  3. Import package.

     import 'package:calendar_view/calendar_view.dart';
    

Implementation

  1. Wrap MaterialApp with CalendarControllerProvider and assign EventController to it.

     CalendarControllerProvider(
         controller: EventController(),
         child: MaterialApp(
             // Your initialization for material app.
         ),
     )
    
  2. Add calendar views.

    For Month View

     Scaffold(
         body: MonthView(),
     );
    

    For Day View

     Scaffold(
         body: DayView(),
     );
    

    For Week view

     Scaffold(
         body: WeekView(),
     );
    

    For more info on properties visit documentation.

  3. Use controller to add or remove events.

    To Add event:

     final event = CalendarEventData(
         date: DateTime(2021, 8, 10);
         event: "Event 1",
     );
    
     CalendarControllerProvider.of(context).controller.add(event);
    

    To Remove event:

     CalendarControllerProvider.of(context).controller.remove(event);
    

    As soon as you add or remove events from the controller, it will automatically update the calendar view assigned to that controller. See, Use of EventController for more info

  4. Use GlobalKey to change the page or jump to a specific page or date. See, Use of GlobalKey for more info.

Optional configurations/parameters in Calendar view

For month view

MonthView(
    controller: EventController(),
    // to provide custom UI for month cells.
    cellBuilder: (date, events, isToday, isInMonth) {
        // Return your widget to display as month cell.
        return Container();
    },
    minMonth: DateTime(1990),
    maxMonth: DateTime(2050),
    initialMonth: DateTime(2021),
    cellAspectRatio: 1,
    onPageChange: (date, pageIndex) => print("$date, $pageIndex"),
    onCellTap: (events, date) {
        // Implement callback when user taps on a cell.
        print(events);
    }
    // This callback will only work if cellBuilder is null.
    onEventTap: (event, date) => print(event);
);

For day view

DayView(
    controller: EventController(),
    eventTileBuilder: (date, events, boundry, start, end) {
        // Return your widget to display as event tile.
        return Container();
    },
    showVerticalLine: true, // To display live time line in day view.
    showLiveTimeLineInAllDays: true, // To display live time line in all pages in day view.
    minMonth: DateTime(1990),
    maxMonth: DateTime(2050),
    initialMonth: DateTime(2021),
    heightPerMinute: 1, // height occupied by 1 minute time span.
    eventArranger: SideEventArranger(), // To define how simultaneous events will be arranged.
    onEventTap: (events, date) => print(events),
);

For week view

WeekView(
    controller: EventController(),
    eventTileBuilder: (date, events, boundry, start, end) {
        // Return your widget to display as event tile.
        return Container();
    },
    showLiveTimeLineInAllDays: true, // To display live time line in all pages in week view.
    width: 400, // width of week view.
    minMonth: DateTime(1990),
    maxMonth: DateTime(2050),
    initialMonth: DateTime(2021),
    heightPerMinute: 1, // height occupied by 1 minute time span.
    eventArranger: SideEventArranger(), // To define how simultaneous events will be arranged.
    onEventTap: (events, date) => print(events),
);

Use of EventController

EventController is used to add or remove events from the calendar view. When we add or remove events from the controller, it will automatically update all the views to which this controller is assigned.

Methods provided by EventController

NameParametersDescription
addCalendarEventData<T> eventAdds one event in controller and rebuilds view.
addAllList<CalendarEventData<T>> eventsAdds list of events in controller and rebuilds view.
removeCalendarEventData<T> eventRemoves an event from controller and rebuilds view.
getEventsOnDayDateTime dateReturns list of events on date

Use of GlobalKey

User needs to define global keys to access functionalities like changing a page or jump to a specific page or date. Users can also access the controller assigned to respected view using the global key.

By assigning global keys to calendar views you can access methods and fields defined by state class of respected views.

Methods defined by MonthViewState class:

NameParametersDescription
nextPagenoneJumps to next page.
previousPagenoneJumps to the previous page.
jumpToPageint pageJumps to page index defined by page.
animateToPageint pageAnimate to page index defined by page.
jumpToMonthDateTime monthJumps to the page that has a calendar for month defined by month
animateToMonthDateTime monthAnimate to the page that has a calendar for month defined by month

Methods defined by DayViewState class.

NameParametersDescription
nextPagenoneJumps to next page.
previousPagenoneJumps to the previous page.
jumpToPageint pageJumps to page index defined by page.
animateToPageint pageAnimate to page index defined by page.
jumpToDateDateTime dateJumps to the page that has a calendar for month defined by date
animateToDateDateTime dateAnimate to the page that has a calendar for month defined by date

Methods defined by WeekViewState class.

NameParametersDescription
nextPagenoneJumps to next page.
previousPagenoneJumps to the previous page.
jumpToPageint pageJumps to page index defined by page.
animateToPageint pageAnimate to page index defined by page.
jumpToWeekDateTime weekJumps to the page that has a calendar for month defined by week
animateToWeekDateTime weekAnimate to the page that has a calendar for month defined by week

Synchronize events between calendar views

There are two ways to synchronize events between calendar views.

  1. Provide the same controller object to all calendar views used in the project.
  2. Wrap MaterialApp with CalendarControllerProvider and provide controller as argument as defined in Implementation.
