Hello, if we use the "Extending the Event Calendar" tutorial as an example (http://doc.silverstripe.org/old/recipes:extending_the_event_calendar?s=recipes%252520calendar), there are two things I am trying to achieve, and hope someone can help me with them.
1. When a user has selected a date via the Calendar Widget or the Filter form, I want to group the events by category. So instead of just displaying them all in cronological order, I want to be able to display events groups by category, chronologically:

Right now I have this setup so each "category" is really a calendar, and then there is one master calendar that pulls all the dates (which is the one that the user queries). I figured categories would be an easier way to solve the problem, but I am open for either way!

I wanted to achieve this also, but in the end decided to cheat. Knowing my groups were fixed and there were only three, I just inserted my template loop three times in the template, the build a custom condition to test the category type for each. So for the first loop I only output events from the first category, in the 2nd loop only events from the 2nd category etc..
A dirty solution yes, but in my case as my groups were fixed save me writing whole load of extensions or even rewriting part of the mod.

I considered the same thing, but my groups are going be changing.
