Bug Description

In the week view the appointments are not labelled other than showing the start time - i.e. you can see that you are occupied but can't tell with what.

Appointments should display their Name in the week view too.

so currently event bubble height depends on duration of event. if event duration is less, then event bubble height is also less such that it can not display event title.

What should we do in such case ?

David Planella (dpm) wrote :

I would recommend having a minimum height for the event bubble height, that never gets smaller.

That is, the min height is set at the height required for one line of text. If an event is, say 2 minutes, the height will not be equivalent to 2 minutes, but it will be set at the min height (i.e. one line of text)

so now,
in case of height is less, then instead of time, now we are showing event title and min height is set to height of title label.

if height is more than min height, for day, we show start-end time, title and description
for Week, we show start time and event title

even now for week view we can not show full title (title will be truncated) as we don't have enough width

I think that's fine for now, thanks Kunal!

As the SDK does not support this yet, is there a way we can make this truncation a bit nicer for the user? I.e. adding ellipsis or fading out the title as it reaches the end of the label?

adding ellipsis should be easy to achieve, I will try to add that
