Outside Days (MiniCalendar Options)

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Use the Show Outside Days options to hide or show days that do not belong to the MiniCalendar's month, and eventually set special Font attributes for these outside days.


Showing outside days is not very common, but a combination of light shading and italic can make them an unobtrusive addition.




If you select show outside days, you have the option of showing all outside days, (the sample above to the right) or showing only outside days of the previous month or the following month (samples below).




The settings Cur. week before and Cur. week after are similar to previous month and following month, above, but only display ouside days of either the previous or following month if these dates belong to the current week. The setting Current week shows outside days from before or after, as long as the dates correspond to the current week. Note that these 3 settings have no meaning unless the concept of the current week is defined for the current GridTemplate (ie. it's a daily or a weekly). Also (see below), it should be apparent that these 3 settings all correspond to the use of hide fully outside days.


The settings Month Change, Month Change Before, and Month Change After display an outside date of the minicalendar if a change of month occurs in the current spread and the date is also in the current spread. The settings Month Change (all week), Month Change Before (all week), and Month Change After (all week) display an outside date of the minicalendar if a change of month occurs in the current spread and the date is in the same week as any of the dates of the current spread.




The 2 samples above are based of a 2 days on 2 pages diary, where the left page is April 30th and the right page is May 1st. The left sample uses the Month Change After setting and the sample on the right uses the Month Change After (all week) setting.


Finally, setting the option hide fully outside weeks, ensures that the last week of a MiniCalendar is hidden, if all its dates lie outside the current month (as is the case above).


Note that this option only controls the appearence of the individual dates (the @ markers), to determine if the week number of a fully outside week should appear or not, and how, you must use the week number headers options.
