I'm trying to setup the Event Schedule View so that when an Event is clicked, it opens a dedicated page to view the event in the SAME browser window. Furthermore, I want to customize which elements of the Event are displayed in that page (presumably via the Settings tag of the Event View control). Here's what I've done so far:
- Created a dedicate Scheduler page and a dedicated EventView page
- Dropped the Scheduler control on to the Scheduler page and linked it to the EventView page via the SingleEventUrl property
- Dropped the EventView control in the EventView Page and set it to display in "Expanded List" mode
Under those conditions, if I click on the Event in the scheduler, the page displays in the same browser window (which I want), but it also displays all the extra items such as the categories and the social bookmarks (which I don't want).
If set the EventView control to display in "List and Page" mode I then have the ability to uncheck the display of the categories and social bookmarks. The EventView control honors those settings but the event page is displayed in a separate browser window (which I don't want).
I noticed that the settings that are available for the three display modes ("List and Page", "Expandable List" and "Expanded List" are different. For example, the option to check/uncheck the social bookmarks is only available in "List and Page" mode so I'm not sure what that's about.
I'm not sure if the the right approach is to use an External Template for the Event View control. But before I go down that route, I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something or doing something wrong.
