I created an event that spans from the 15th (starting 2 PM) to the 17th (ending 2 PM). In the Month view, when the mouse hovers over that calendar event a little message displays the event as "(2 Days)".

What times did you set? iirc OCP adds the hours together to get to the amount of days.

I just created a event, 12:00  (20th)-11:00 (23rd) (4 days)  ( 20th time is set to 12AM and 24th time is set to 11PM)

And like supposed to be it says 4 days.

:D  Dont shoot the messenger!!  :D

What do you think it should say :)? This is probably a warrant for a modification rather than a change in the standard ocPortal.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

ya… it shoudl say 2 days, from 15 to 16 is 1 day, and from 16 to 17 is 1 day, making it 2 days.

Might be confused because the 15th, 16th and 17th have a 3 day span total?

Yes, I know the math works that way. Technically 2 days, but it spans 3 days. By the same token, we might have 3 days and two nights of holiday. Are we gone for 2 days or 3? Seems a bit unintuitive and too literal for a community calendar.

I know what you mean, but i think it requires a modification to set it up the way you want, eg, total timspan is 2 days ( counting hours ) but you want to show it as 3 days, due to the amount of days that are involved.

The only way i see is that there will come a option were it says what you want to use, the day's or the hours..

If we change it as you suggest, jueqel, then an event lasting from 11:30pm - 1:15am would, theoretically "last" two days, which wouldn't be appropriate, either.

Hopefully it would be a little more intuitive than 11:30pm-1:15am = 2 days, but it is just an observation that it seems misleading when I look at the calendar. Leon's suggestion of counting "days" or "hours" as an option is good.

I just realized why I noticed. The marker on the month calendar shows up for the 1st day in the ranged event but not in the other 2 days.
