NOTE: This tutorial is outdated. Please see this post on how to synchronize dhtmlxScheduler with Google Calendar.
When developing dhtmlxScheduler, we were certainly inspired by Google Calendar, one of the most popular online calendars. And I believe (along with many of our users) that dhtmlxScheduler has surpassed it in many ways, not all, but we’re working on it :)
The most noticeable advantage of dhtmlxScheduler is the ability to customize each and every aspect of the calendar and include it as a part of a web application package. Besides, unlike Google Calendar, dhtmlxScheduler can be used within the local network, if such a need arises.
Let’s pretend I convinced you that dhtmlxScheduler is the best option for the scheduling part of your application. But what if you want it to display the events stored in some Google Calendar account? Is there an easy way to do that? Well, don’t worry, there is. We’ve already beem faced with a need to reflect events from Google Calendar in dhtmlxScheduler, so we have a solution to share.
