EventsHolderPage with by date navigation




9 September 2009 at 1:26am Community Member, 56 Posts


I'd like to navigate throe events on eventsHolder page by navigations links like that:

         Select period:<br />
         <select name="">
         <% control eventsNav.months %>
            <option <% if $key==$currentMonth %>selected="selected"<% end_if %> value="$key">$value</option>
<% end_control %>
<!-- same with years -->

What should look like data structure on EventsPageHolder_Controller class to use similar template. I have two hash arrays that should be
pattern for sapphire data structures:

   private $months = array(
      0 => "Jan",
      1 => "Feb",
      2 => "Mar",
   private $years = array(
      2008 => 2008,
      2009 => 2009,
      2010 => 2010,

and controller method

   public function eventsNav()
      $result = new DataObjectSet();
      $months = new DataObjectSet();
      $years = new DataObjectSet();
      $result->push(array("currentMonth" => $this->month));
      $result->push(array("currentYear" => $this->year));
      return $result;
