hmCal_SET START DATE(area;startdate)

Parameter          Type             Description
area               Longint      ->  hmCal area
startdate          Date         ->  new startday


The command hmCal_SET START DATE sets the calendar to the starting date, defined by the parameter startdate. Depending upon the view, the calendar is redrawn again, so that the startdate is shown. The command causes an immediate redraw of the area, whereby the callback method routine releases the hmCal_UpdateAppointments event.

The command has an effect only if the starting date deviates from the new starting date.


The following example indicates the current date in the current view.

hmCal_SET START DATE(hmCal;Current Date)
