If you'd like your custom action layout to reside in another file write a script in your file that can accept the event's ID as a parameter and call that script from DayBack's script "Go To Event Record From WebViewer". If you have multiple sources you may want to test for them in "Go To Event Record From WebViewer" and call your external script only when going to an event in that particular $source number.

! Can I Jump to the Calendar from My Event?

! And see my event in the calendar?

Yes. Check out the layout "Action - View Event" -- look at it in a stock copy of DayBack if you haven't added that layout to your file yet. You'll see a button at the bottom of the layout called "Show Event in Calendar". When called from a layout based on the same table occurrences as your Source No X layout, it will pass the event information to DayBack and the calendar with scroll / reset to show you the event.

The script on that button should be just what you need

If you're configuring DayBack to show your event directly in your own layout (option 2 above) then that layout has to be in the same file as the calendar's webviewer layout (though the layout can certainly show records from another file).

You can also configure DayBack to show your event directly in your own layout when you click in the calendar (instead of using one of the webviewer's popovers). Notes on how to do that can be found here: [[Event Popovers]].

Changed lines 5-25 from:
When you click on an event in the calendar it comes up in the Event Details mini window. We already have a script written that will close this window and take you to the event record in another layout in your solution.

So add a button to the Event Details window, and add
the script "Jump to Event in My Layout ( Event ID )" to this button: add the field containing the primary key (unique ID) of your event as the script parameter. For example, this would be SampleEvents::_id in the sample events table that comes with the calendar.

Now edit the script "Jump to Event in My Layout ( Event ID )" and you'll see two areas that need you to modify them: the first specifies the layout you'd like to see you event in, and the second is a SetField that probably says Field Missing: you'll need to point that at the sample events field in your table so it looks something like this:

-> SetField [SampleEvents::_id; Get ( ScriptParameter )]

That's it!

Note that you may end up having one of these scripts for each [[multiple sources | source]] as each will have their own detail layout.

!! What if my layout is in another file?

If you want to see the event in a mini window first, and *then* jump to the layout in your file, you can use our script "Jump to Event in My Layout ( Event ID )" to call a script in your file, passing the event iD as a script parameter. The script in your file would then go to the right layout and perform a find for the eventID.

That is the easiest way.

If you want them to go right to the layout in your file when you first click on an event, you'll still write the same script in your file to find the event by event ID, but you'll call that script from within our script "Click in / Drag Event". If you have only one source in the calendar, you can replace everything between the comment "----------------  Else, display the selected record  ----------------" and the comment " > > End If Mixed Sources" with a call to the script in your file, the script parameter containing the event ID would be $sc_UID

If you have more than one source this is trickier, and we can build this for you as a custom modification

to:
This is most easily done with a custom action and DayBack comes with one such action already: "View Event Record". More info on using custom actions and modifying the "View Event Record" action here: [[Custom Actions]].

You can also configure DayBack to show
your event directly in your own layout when you click in the calendar (instead of using one of the webviewer's popovers). Notes on how to do that can be found here: [[Event Popovers]].

!! What If the Event Layout I Want to Use is in Another File?
