with new release of SAP UI5 (OpenUI5 Blog - First Preview of OpenUI5 1.34) there are some new controls available - one of them is Planning Calendar - see at OpenUI5 Explored. We have already Design Studio SDK: Activity Viewer (manual Gantt Chart) in community package which is serving with similar functions, this control can bring a bit different visualization.


* Works only with Design Studio 1.6 SP2 and higher!

* Works only in M mode (as this is M-control of UI5)

The good point on integration of UI5 controls is, due to the generation of integration code the effort to get it as SDK extension is very low - as described in Design Studio SDK: New Unified UI5 Components. It means, there is a need of very small adjustments and the rest is based on properties specified in UI5 definitions.

What is Planning Calendar?

Basically it is a display option for events and header, each with dates (start and end) and other properties.

and it allows also month / year selection in runtime

In the properties you can define:

* Rows

* Appointments

* Headers

Date Entry

Similar to the (updated) Activity Viewer you can enter dates with following mask:




Options in Runtime/Properties

The general options allow you to set start date and also the view type (month, day, hour)
