The following is the first few sections of a chapter from The Busy Coder's Guide to Android Development, plus headings for the remaining major sections, to give you an idea about the content of the chapter.
CalendarView, as you might have guessed, displays a calendar to the user,
designed to allow the user to pick a date.
You supply a starting date, which the user then manipulates, triggering
event listeners whenever the date is changed.
Note that this is a small calendar – it is not designed to show details within a date, such as appointments and times.
This view is available standalone and also as an optional adjunct to
This view was added in API Level 11 and therefore will not be available on older versions of Android, though a backport is available that works on Android 2.2 onwards.
If you do nothing, the
CalendarView will start with today’s date,
though you can call a
setDate() method to pass in a
to use to change the initially-selected date. You can also call
setOnDateChangeListener() to supply an
OnDateChangeListener to learn
when the user changes the date in the
CalendarView works well with
terms of setting and getting the year/month/day-of-month from the
CalendarView (as supplied to the
onSelectedDayChange() method of your
OnDateChangeListener) and converting it into something you can use in your code.
