Creating a Scrollbox of Events


Example

To create a scrollbox of events, place these lines of code anywhere on your page between the StartGPC() and EndGPC() lines and between PHP tags (<? and ?>):

Note: any page that contains a scrollbox of events will NOT display the "GPC Main Menu" dropdown on the top banner of the GPC Look & Feel.

$calendar_category="all";  // view details about this line
$calendar_campus="all";  // view details about this line
$people="all";  // view details about this line
$calendar_width=400;  // optional line - values can be between 1 and 540
include "php_classes/calendar.php3";  // required line
echo $cal->get_scrollbox();  // required line
