APEX Calendar Display

Oracle Tips by Burleson Consulting

It's easy in APEX to display dates in a calendar format.  The APEX calendar is designed to accept a list of calendar items with standard SQL commands.

Step 1: Write the SQL to return a list of DATE datatype columns.

We start with an SQL statement that will be used as input to the APEX calendar.  In this syntax example we grab a list of date columns for the current month:

   to_char(scheduled_flight_arrival_time,'yyyy mon')
   to_char(sysdate,'yyyy mon');


Step 2: Add the SQL to the APEX calendar.

Next, we invoke an APEX SQL type calendar as shown in the sample below.  We start by defining a new region of the APEX calendar type:

Next we have a choice of two types of APEXA calendar types, the APEX Easy calendar and the HTMLDB SQL calendar:

In our example we choose the HTMLDB "SQL Calendar option.  We next name the calendar:

Now we add our SQL to pass the APEX calendar with the parameters, a list of DATE datatypes, in this case, for only the current month:


Then we click "create region" and we are all done!  When we display the calendar our dates will appear in the calendar display.

Step 3: Test the APEX Calendar

There we invoke the calendar to see the dates in the HTMLDB calendar display:
