Hi, I'm trying to return a list of upcoming main events (excluding announcements) from the EventCalendar. I only want to display events where there is an actual CalendarEvent page....

Is there a simple way to do this using the Calendar built in functions?

Hi, Nick,

Check the UpcomingEvents function in Calendar.php.. at least one of the arguments is a filter (there may even be two).. Anyway, you want to apply one like "is_announcement != 1", and that should work for you.

Hi UC,

yeah there are two arguments in that function, but I've tried a few variations and I either get errors or no result....

this works (but doesn't give me access to any calendar functions):

function getHomeFeatureEvents(){
return DataObject::get("CalendarDateTime","StartDate >= DATE(NOW()) AND is_announcement!=1","StartDate ASC","",5);

but this doesn't:

return DataObject::get_one("Calendar")->upcomingEvents(5,"is_announcement != 1");
