"Power" Calendar App
A client asked for a combination monthly and weekly calendar and after a fair amount of tinkering, I got a fairly satisfactory solution combining CalendarPlugin and TimeTablePlugin. I also incorporated the add-an-event "wizard" described in CalendarPluginAddEventCommentPluginTemplate. I'm sharing my work here for others that may find it useful and perhaps further refine it.

- Convenient form for Adding events
The calendar application is built using only to pages
- one contains the program (all the plugin calls to draw the calendar)
- the other contains the data
The data (i.e., the calendar entries) are stored separately from the application code. Anyone can copy an existing calendar application page and use it without worrying about changing or clearing out the data first.
The application contains a button that allows you to view the Event List (imported from the data page). To make modifications to event, you edit the data directly.
The Calendar uses several plugins in combination
