Implementation


Adding an Events Listing component is the same process as adding any other component in the Presentation > Details.

  1. Follow the directions for adding a component. The Events Listing component is located in the Select a Rendering dialog box in Sublayouts > V2 > Active Data Calendar > Events Listing.

  2. In the Control Properties dialog box, enter parameters to define which Department or Category the sidebar should find events for, to specify where the event's detail page is, and to customize the sidebar's appearance or functionality. See below for a listing of applicable parameters. See Configuring the Calendar for more information on adding parameters.

  3. Click OK until all dialog boxes are closed.

  4. Save and approve the page for publication.

Events Listing Parameters


Parameter Name Value(s) Description
Department A number or list of numbers corresponding to a department. Example:1,2,3 Filters events to only display events in a specific department. IDs may be comma separated and are listed on the Department ID Listing page.

cat A number or list of numbers corresponding to a category. Example:1,2,3
Filters events to only display events tagged with a specific category. IDs may be comma separated and are listed on the Category ID Listing page.
 
subcat A number or list of numbers corresponding to a subcategory. Example:1,2,3
Filters events to only display events tagged with a specific subcategory. IDs may be comma separated and are listed on the Subcategory ID Listing page.
DetailsPage A path to a sitecore page where the calendar details should appear 
Example: /sitecore/content/Home/studentaffairs/programs_events/events/details
The details page must have the Event Details component placed on it. This is a required parameter. 
MaxResults A single number. Example: 3 Specifies the number of events that appear in the sidebar. The default is three.
Title A string of text. Example: More Events Changes the wording of the sidebar's default "Upcoming Events" title.
StartDate 2012-05-28 A date to start looking for events.
EndDate 2016-01-01 The date to stop looking for events.
Paging true / false Creates pagination at the bottom of the events page. 
MaxPerPage A number. Example: 10 Specifies the number of events on each page. Works in tandem with the Paging parameter. 
q Example: "Entrepreneur Entrepreneurship" (quotes required) A word, or number of words to search the calendar for. The example to the right would look for for both "entrepreneur and entrepreneurship" in the titles or bodies of the events.

Audience Example: "Alumni Freshman" (quotes required)
Works like q above. The example to the right would look for for both "alumni and freshman" audiences.
AddEvents The format is "ED1|IID1, EID2|IID2"
example:  4868|15557 (quotes not required) or "4868|15557,4858|15559"(quotes required)
A specific event or events that should appear on a calendar. The "EID" is the "event ID" and IID is the "Information ID. Both be found in the URL of the event. For example: http://events.drexel.edu/EventList.aspx?view=EventDetails&eventidn=5420&information_id=16825
The EID of this event is 5420 and the IID is 16825
IncludeImage true / false Sets the page to display images (true) or to hide them (false). Default is true. 
UseAnd Example: true This parameter allows for more specific filtering. For example, if you only wanted events tagged with a specific department AND category to show on your calendar, you would use this parameter in addition to the standard Department and cat parameters. By default, the list of events will display any events tagged as a department OR category.
