Calendar web control

Insert Webcontrol > Events > Calendar

The events calendar web control helps you create a comprehensive display of your events. The data displayed can be filtered to a particular area or event type or filtered based on metadata. iCal support, RSS and Atom can be incorporated and the web control provides a simple mechanism for navigating to different months and years.

For more customisation and details of the other settings within this web control, you can refer to our common web control settings list.
