Event Calendar DatePicker JQuery Error

Go to End

I have done a fresh install of Silverstripe 2.3.7, installed Data Object Manager r393, and installed Event Calendar r105.

When I add a new Calendar Event and Add a Date the datepicker does not work, and I am unable to edit the start and end dates.

It appears this is due to some javascript errors.

Some of the errors I get are:
In dataobjectmanager_popup.js, dom_jquery_ui.js, and datepicker_init.js the error is 'jquery' is undefined
In datepicker_init.js the error is $('.datepicker input').livequery is not a function

It seems as though jQuery is not loaded for this part of the admin.

Any help would be much appreciated.

If you're on 2.3, you need to be running the 2.3 branch on /branches/2.3/event_calendar

Ah, Thanks mate.

I downloaded the branch. It has this error in it:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_PROTECTED, expecting ';' or '{' in [site-address]\event_calendar\code\CalendarUI.class.php on line 117

Which is:

public function setAnchorEnd($date)

It has an unfinished setAnchorEnd function and a floating protected tag.

I'm guess this should be:

public function setAnchorEnd($date)
$this->anchor_end = new sfDate(CalendarUtil::getDateToString($date));

Now, even with this branch, the same errors are there. Do I need to get an older version of dataobjectmanager?

Yeah, make sure you're running the 2.3 branch of DOM, too.

Awesome. All works now.

Thanks so much, not only for your quick replies and help, but for all the effort you have put into the modules you have created. They really turn Silverstripe into a powerful CMS.

Cheers mate!

I have the same problem as ampedup, but I'm not sure how or where to get the branched versions. Are they available in the repository via the web (I couldn't find any 2.3 branches at, or do I have use SVN to get them? I installed the zipped/downloaded version of silverstripe, not a subversion checkout...

Thanks for your reply UncleCheese. I downloaded the event_calendar code, but there doesn't seem to be a Data Object Manager (DOM) folder under
