Description

17 years ago
Right now, if we use a window that is too small for the full month view for the
Calendar, it is simply truncated to the window size. I'll add a screenshot to
explain better.

I can suggest two ways to fix the problem:

a) Add scrollbars to the month view so we can scroll when the window is too small.
b) Make the calendar shrink to fit in the current window.

Solution b) has the drawback that for very small browser sizes, either resizing
will be impractical, or undesireable as it will render things unreadable. I'm
not sure if that's the desired behaviour, but mozilla right now uses scrollbars
when content doesn't fit usually, so that could be seen as non-standard, perhaps.

The default size is pretty large (probably optimised for the size of the
internet appliance thingy). I reckon it should be possible to have any size
representation of the month. When it gets too small to read the titles in the
cells, it's still easy to get the event info from either the event tab, or
mousing over events to see the info in the tooltips.

what about setting "overflow" to "auto", that way if the size of the window
shrank, at least you would still get everything you expect.

If we can fix the window maximization issue, this should fall out nicely.

Vertically, the month view appears to be scaling fine, but horizontally, it does
not.
