MLCalendar not updating to new month

Postby mnkynifefite » Wed Jun 16, 2010 10:55 am

This one has been nagging me for a while so hopefully I can finally get it resolved.

My MLCalendar scene/variables does not automatically "update" to the new month unless I actually change it via a button. For example, one minute after midnight on the 30th of June the variables should be update to July, but they are not. How do I make this happen?

Not sure if / why MLCalendar is doing that, but you could use MLSchedule or MLScheduler to time an every month "button push" to automate that task and it then works seamlessly to the user.

Thanks for the reply.

I think I'd prefer a server rule that looks at the {{currentmonth}} and when it changes it "updates" the MLCalendar variables. Any thoughts on how to go about this? The issue is that the "push button" only goes to the next month, meaning there is no "intelligence" as to changing to the proper month.

MLSchedule can trigger a MLServeCmd any day of any month (ie: the first of the month).

Still not sure how I would do that. It seems that just changing the variable does nothing. Thoughts?

Try version 3.0.254 of the plugin. It should now automatically refresh the variables every time the day changes.
