-> If you add a lot more rows, you'll also need to edit the script "Clear Calendar" and take a look at the first calc we use to set the first variable: the one with all the ||||||||| in it. Edit that calc and select everything starting with the first &, copy it, and now paste this in at the end of the calc, twice. This in effect gives you many more rows of ||||||.

!! Changing Size.

-> While you can certainly resize layout elements, remember that there are two sets of layouts for you to use, including
the "small" layouts (enter layout mode and look at the list of layouts to see these) optimized for 1024 x 768 screen resolution, so you may just need to pick the right layout and let FileMaker's object resizing take care of the rest.

!! How can I add my own logo and remove the layout header?

-> These changes are just made by editing the layout. For
the logo, just enter layout mode, select the logo and delete it. You may have to unlock it first by selecting "Unlock" from FileMaker's arrange menu.

-> The select "Picture..." from FileMaker's insert menu
and select the logo you'd like to use (be sue you don't have the "store only a reference..." option selected). Once you have the logo there, you can copy and paste it to all the layouts that need it.

-> Dealing with the header is similar, but before you delete it, you'll want to ungroup it as it is tied to the grey button bar below it. Again, unlock the object in layout mode if necessary and select "Ungroup" from FileMaker's Arrange menu. Then re-select just the header and delete it or change its color. Note that when you replace this you'll want to set its auto-resizsing options to stretch the length of the layout, and to choose a graphic that looks good doing this.

-> On some layouts like "Home" the header is actually two objects, one of which is a solid color and THAT one is the one set to stretch to fill the screen. You may want to do something similar so FileMaker doesn't work to hard trying to stretch your header image. Of course if you just use simple colored rectangles from FileMaker's drawing palette you can just sent them to stretch and not worry about it.

-> If you're new to this "stretching", search for "resizing" in FileMaker's built in help and read the first topic

'''Showing a different number of rows on the day view.'''

-> If you want to make the portal rows on your day view taller (maybe you're [[adding fields]] or just want to see more than one line per event) you'll need to teach the calendar that there are a different number of rows on the day portal than on the others.

-> To do this, edit the ''second'' SetVariable declaration in the script "Load Calendar Settings - Each Redraw" and edit the case statement so that you use your own number on the day view. Note that this number is shared between the [[SimpleViews | simple]] and "regular" day views.

!! Configuration Settings: changing the rows per day, rows for all day events etc.

 > > be sure to mention how to have a different number of rows on the day view from other views.

!! Can I add more fields to the day view?

Sure. Read [[adding fields]] for notes on how to add fields from your events table or from related tables.

Another nice modification is to change the row height on the day view so you can show more than one line per event. Be sure to watch the video mentioned above to get a feel for the stacked objects in this portal, then change the rows per day as described above to reflect the number of rows in your new portal.

!! How can I change the default view of the calendar?

include : default view
