anyone have some insight as to how I can customize the dateChooser component to reflect a firefighter shift calendar? essentially I would like each different shift day (A,B,C) to be colored differently, and repeat for the duration of the calendar.
What you could do is to create a separate area for info/notes and link the data from the DateChooser to new dynamic text boxes.
So, you could set up an array of the days, getDay(); and then depending on what day it is, set the color of a square box graphic or any other movie clip to a certain color. Depending on the day, the color would change.
There's a project like this in the Training from the Source for FlashMX 2004. They have an interface with a DateChooser as a small calendar in the upper right and then dynamic text boxes to the left where "Monday, July 14th, 2007" is shown.
