Does this calendar allow for the presentation of event details as the current Google calendar does?

Also, I would like to see the event title be able to occupy 2 lines. One complaint I have with calendars in general is that except in Google's "Agenda" view, no other view really gives you enough text to see what the event title is.

Hello John,

The Ajax Event Calendar allow presentation of the event details as the Google calendar. You can use it with the Advanced Tooltip extension to get even better presentation.

The event title is on 1 line as for now. However the description of the event is shown if you place your mouse over an event if you don't have any other behavior set on that event.

Thanks, Miroslav.

One other question about this tool -- is there the option for an agenda view as in Google Calendar? Our issue with longer titles (as Agenda View allows) is that we have workshop titles that typically are 4-6 words long, sometimes longer, and the truncated title views in week or month view really makes those views not very useful to us.

Thanks again.

Hello John-Michael,

Unfortunately no "agenda" view is available so far. However, the tool-tip workaround will work there as well.
I will place that question of yours as a request in the extension wish list.

Has anybody figured out a way to "force' multi-line event title?

I found a solution for this. But it requires a slight modification of the dmx_events_calendar.js file. I'll share by PM if you are interested.

Would love for this to be built into the extension. My clients don't want to see just a few characters - they want to see the full event name without forcing the user to mouse-over.

Otherwise, great extension! Thanks
