Although the concept of weekly bands is limited to daily and weekly layouts, there can be more than one "current week", since weekly diary spreads can contain more than one week, and daily diaries can contain dates belonging to different weeks on the left and right pages. We will discus these cases at the end of this topic.
Most of the time you will not need to set the Frame and Background options. It is easier, and more visual, to set the desired background and frame in the GridTemplate (see example below), and let the token delete each textbox if it does not correspond to the current week.
There are no options for textboxes containing non-current week Weekly Bands tokens. The reason is that Weekly MiniCal tokens automatically delete their textbox if they are not the current week. However, the current week options used to shade the current week are available in the MiniCals (Others) property, since the current week often extends into the next month (see example below).
As mentioned earlier, some diary layouts may call for more the shading of more than one current week (in the example above, there are 2 shaded bands, but they both correspond to the same week). To obtain this effect you need to use the Apply to weeks of all visible dates of spread option.
We will consider 2 representative layouts : a "2 day on 2 pages" and a "2 weeks on 2 pages" layout. In both cases we will assume a minicalendar for the current month on the left page, and a minicalendar for the next month on the right page, both base on the DayValue of 1.
In the 2d/2p diary described above, if the date of the left page and of the right page belong to a different week, but same month, (for example December 15 and 16, 2002), the effects of the option Apply to weeks of all visible dates of spread are as shown below :
The above examples would be the same for a 2w/2p layout which started on Monday December 9, 2002.
In the event that the 2w/2p also contained a change of month (starting, for example on December 30th, 2002), the result of using the Apply to weeks of all visible dates of spread option in both the MiniCal (Current) and MiniCals (Others) properties would be :
In the cases when the layouts dates belong to different weeks and different months, the 2d/2p containing August 31 and September 1st 2003 would produce the following without the Apply to weeks of all visible dates of spread option :
Note that in the 2d/2p example, if you only wished to have 2 different weeks shaded, when there is a change of month, then you should only set the Apply to weeks of all visible dates of spread option in the MiniCals (Others) property and leave that option un-checked in the MiniCal (Current) property.
The Apply to weeks of all visible dates of spread option can also be set to apply the font options of the Current Week to individual dates (click here to see how).
