As part of a larger web-app, I have developed a calendar which shows appointments over 3 months for a group of people. Backend is PHP, and I generate an HTML-Table which is then enriched with the wonderful DataTables-Class (http://datatables.net ): http://mbaas.de/dataTables/agenda.htm (In addition to that we#re using jQuery + jQueryUI)
Unfortunately we have to use IE8 - which is very slow in handling JS.
I am now seeking ways to rewrite this class so that it delivers (and executes) faster - would appreciate any comments and suggestions. Of course a similar layout would be needed..
- display appointments gantt-chart-like (ideally colouring for various types of appointments) and an option to launch a URL when an appointment is being clicked on.
- Display configureable text when mouse hovers.
- mainly that gantt-view is important, but additional vies are a plus
