The STANDARD version of the calendar date picker for Virtuemart has been completely revamped. You can now display your local language on the frontend of the calendar; change the formatting of the date; and even display a custom HTML message under the calendar. Great options for any Joomla website running Virtuemart who would like to give users the option of communicating a date requirement.


Core Date Functions

Change Date Format

You can the way the date is formatted and displayed to frontend users, this also relates over to how the date will be displayed on orders. When you create your Calendar Custom Field in Virtuemart; simply choose the best layout for your needs, there are 6 possible options. As an added convenience you can also alter the date format when applying it to a specific product. When you change the date in the Virtuemart product detail screen it will only change the date format for that specific product.

  Enter A Custom HTML Message

You can include a custom message in HTML or plain text under each calendar. If you are not fluent in HTML simply use your WYSIWYG text editor and then copy the HTML code into the message block. You can set a default message by entering your message in the custom field setup. Or, alter the message directly when you assign it to a product entry.

Note: The majority of users who use this calendar date plugin will only have need to incorporate one calendar date field per product entry. Currently, if you assign more than one calendar to a product it will default to displaying the last calendar date field. We are working to resolve this in the event someone needs to display different messages under each calendar in one product detail screen.

  Change Date Area Size

If you change the date format you may find the displayed date does not fit into the default size of the field area. You can increase or decrease the size of the field block / displayed date by entering a number value into the “Size of input” field in the VirtueMart Custom Field setup section.

  Charge An Extra Amount To Select A Date

This is a default Virtuemart Custom field option. If you need to charge an extra amount for a user to select a date, then this can be configured when you add the Calendar Field to a product. Note: you cannot assign a specific value for individual dates. It is just one fee for selecting any date.
