Dates - Do you use Calendar controls effectively?

Last updated by RebeccaLiu on 01 Dec 2014 06:13 am (over 7 years ago) See History

In Outlook, the Calendar control has a number of important features:

  • Saturday and Sunday are displayed at the end.
  • Days that have data associated with them are bold
  • The current day is highlighted with a box

Users are familiar with the Outlook calendar control. When the calendar control is used it should incorporate all of these features of the Outlook calendar control.

Figure: Bad Example - Calendar Control - Sunday is at the front, today's date is not highlighted, and items with data are not bolded

Figure: Good Example - Calendar Control - Monday is at the front, today's date is highlighted, and items with data are bolded

                                                                                        We have a program called [SSW Code Auditor](http://www.ssw.com.au/ssw/CodeAuditor/) to                              check for this rule.
