Class awful.widget.calendar_popup

A calendar popup wibox

Display a month or year calendar popup using calendar_popup.month or calendar_popup.year.

The calendar style can be tweaked by providing tables of style properties at creation: style_year, style_month, style_yearheader, style_header, style_weekday, style_weeknumber, style_normal, style_focus (see cell_properties).

The wibox accepts arguments for the calendar widget: font, spacing, week_numbers, start_sunday, long_weekdays. It also accepts the extra arguments opacity, bg, screen and position. opacity and bg apply to the wibox itself, they are mainly useful to manage opacity by setting opacity for the false opacity or setting bg="#00000000" for compositor opacity. The screen argument forces the display of the wibox to this screen (instead of the focused screen by default). The position argument is a two-characters string describing the screen alignment “[vertical][horizontal]”, e.g. “cc”, “tr”, “bl”, …

The wibox visibility can be changed calling the toggle method. The attach method adds mouse bindings to an existing widget in order to toggle the display of the wibox.
