Rainmeter Calendar

**Update Sept 2010**
The calendar has received an upgrade including holidays, localization and skinability.

Check out the beta at the Rainmeter forums and pitch in your ideas and thoughts.

Instead of using Rainlender I built my own calendar to use in Rainmeter.

Originally designed to fit in the Sidebar layout for the "Enigma" layout: [link]

Silk icon thanks to Mark James at [link]

Grey (micons) icon thanks to [link]

**Update 3/30/09**
Updated to include a version with the week starting on Monday and ending on Sunday. Both the underline and bold versions have this.

A minor feature with these new calendars is they now update faster! Whoopie! Also note that I changed the font I used back to Trebuchet MS (the font ~Kaelri uses in Enigma).

Sorry for the wait, everyone. Enjoy!

**Update 1/10/09**
This is now a pack including 2 calendar types. One is the original underlined type and the other is a stylized text type to highlight the current day. Each are just as customizable as before.

Also added is the option to display part of the previous and next month in the calendar (partly displayed in the preview). Again, colors can be customized.

Also, two icons are included (credits above) and are used to enable/disable showing the extra days in the calendar by double left clicking. By right clicking you can open the Time/Date Properties window (only tested in Windows XP Pro as admin).

And then obviously the month is now displayed next to the icon. This also can be enabled/disabled, but it requires some in-config tweaking

Hope you enjoy the new features and improvements.

Simple Calendar Rainmeter Calendar Skin

I share the best Rainmeter Skins on my website. Can I publish this skin at my deviantart profile and https://rainmeterbase.com/simple-calendar-rainmeter-calendar-skin ?

Why it is not a rmskin file? How to install it?

將資料夾放置在 rainmeter/skins 資料夾即可。

Thank you very much for this simple calendar, it works well with the skin i made. i.imgur.com/fLIALns.jpg if you want to see.

Very nice!

I adjusted the colours and the labels a bit, and also hid the icon and put the clicking-functionality into the month-label.

Now it's just the way i want it.

Just what I was looking for. Thanks.
Moday to sunday calendar in bold doesn't work.
As calendar refreshes, the current day shows as bold, changes to normal, then to a red zero and finally disappears.

Sat to sun works perfect.

Great skin.

Thanks,

¡Ah! Al calendario le hice modificaciones radicales en el aspecto visual para que concordara con el diseño de los otros elementos de mi escritorio. Cuando lo tenga terminado, quiero mostrarte como quedó.

Esto si no tengo cabeza para traducirlo ^^;

¡Tu calendario es fantástico!
¿Puedes ayudarme con un detallito?
Necesito traducir los nombres de los meses al español...

Entiendo bastante el inglés pero lo escribo muy poco. Ojalá me comprendas.

Your calendar is fantastic!
Can you help me?

Thank you

I absolutely love the calendar, but I do want to change the background instead of having it transparent. I was thinking doing a simple, circular background, then having today's date highlighted by the same circle. If you could do that, I would be glad to favorite it.

I meant smaller circle.

I luv this calendar. Thanks for your work.

I found and I fixed one bug tho. If you have very light color behind the calendar the text was not readable. To handle this I have added in the code two lines under the "AntiAlias=#AA#".

Now the code looks like this:

AntiAlias=#AA#
StringEffect=SHADOW
FontEffectColor=0,0,0,50

End here is the result: [link]

Is there a way to import events to the calendar? i'm currently using rainlendar and rainmeter but would prefer to use just rainmeter, but i haven't seen any calendars so far be able to import events.
