YUI Library Examples: Calendar Control: Multi-Select Calendar

Calendar Control: Multi-Select Calendar

By default the Calendar control is setup for single-select mode, allowing only a single date to be selected at a time. This example shows how you can easily configure the Calendar to support multiple date selections.

Setting up the Calendar

The markup for our multi-select Calendar example looks indentical to the basic single-select Calendar:

Instantiating a multi-select Calendar is similar to instantiating a single-select Calendar; however, to specify the multi-select configuration we pass a configuration object into the constructor. The configuration object is a JavaScript object literal which can be passed to the Calendar constructor in the form of key/value pairs for the purpose of setting the Calendar's various configuration properties. In this case, we'll specify that the "MULTI-SELECT" option has a value of true in line 6 below.

You will see Calendar's various other configuration properties at work throughout the remainder of the tutorials, and you can also view the Calendar's configuration properties reference for more details.
