Greetings everyone,.

I have been using the 2009 free version 1.5 calendar and I just downloaded the new latest build of the free calendar (build 1.09).

Yes, I am just a Rookie. I was wondering how to delete the sample entries in the calendar. There are quite a few entries and I was wondering if there is a way to delete all of them in one command rather than each one separately.

Also, what happened to the trash can for deleting in the day view? Now you have to open a appointment and press the delete shortcut in the top of the menu to delete an appointment.

And lastly, how do you get the calendar to open in the month view.

Thank you for any help.

Head over to the Event List layout, show all records, then delete all.

That's right, though you can write a script that does this (you'll want you script to do just what you do by hand: run our script to go to the event, then delete it, then close the window and refresh the calendar). You'll find this take a bit more work since we're not just showing event rows in the calendar.

An alternate method is to attach the SampleEvents table occurrence to CalendarRows as described here and then your script could GoToRealtedRecord in SampleEvents, delete the event, and then return to refresh the calendar.

Pretty simple; the day week and month views are just native FileMaker Tabs, so you can enter layout mode and change the default tab. Getting to that tab requires a trick though Learn about that here: working with tabs

Enjoy!
