        $cal = new sfCalendarPlugin();
        //Add events to calendar
        $cal->addEvent("2010-04-10","First Event");
        $cal->addEvent("2010-04-25","Second Event");
        ... and so on
        //Force user to select a date greater than 2010-01-01 (Optional)
        //Force user to select a date smaller than 2011-01-01 (Optional)
        //We save the calendar class to session (To be used in ajax navigation of months and years)
        //We pass on the calendar to the template
        $this->cal = $cal;
  • Use calendar in template:

        <!-- Generate the date picker input field -->
        <!-- The parameter represents the name & id of the input field generated -->
  • It generated a input field and a button. Once the button was clicked or the input field was clicked, the calendar will appear.
