I have created an html page in which i have palced the full-calendar code.

the script retrieves data from my shareoint calendar list - "Room Reservation" using SP-Services.

I am able to get the events in the events[] array, but the final results are not getting displayed in the view on my page. I am not able to see the events on my screen.

below is the code which i am using.

The ID query string parameter must be in the format "ID.0.yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ssZ" for recurring events (where "ID" is the list item ID for the event). Event ID's are returned as just a number (for non-recurring events) or several numbers separated by ";#" in 2007 or "." in 2010 to indicate individual instances of recurring events. By splitting and joining the ID this way, thisID will be set to a valid query string parameter whether an event is recurring or not for both versions of SharePoint.

                        // FullCalendar documentation specifies that recurring events should all have the same id value when building the events array (the id is optional, but I'm including it for completeness). We can get the list item ID (which is the same for all instances of recurring events) without the recurrence information by simply splitting thisID.
                        var eventID = thisID.split( '.' )[0];

                        // Get the event title. This is displayed on the calendar along with the start time of the event.
                        var thisTitle = $( this ).attr( 'ows_Title' );

                        // Get the event description. I don't use it in this example, but you could use it for something, perhaps as a tooltip when hovering over the event.
                        var thisDesc = $( this ).attr( 'ows_Description' );

                        // Add the event information to the events array so FullCalendar can display it.

Assuming you are using 2010+

Check out my post here:

Fetching items from sharepoint list and attaching in Fullcalendar with JSOM

You should be able to put your initialization code in my code and it will achieve the same result.

  • Hey, Thanks Brayn, I somehow figured out the issue, it was there cause of the version i used for full calendar Can you guide me further in filtering the events ? I want to do something like this Populate a dropdown above the calendar from a differnt list's title filed and filter the calendar based in the selected option from the dropdown Commented Jul 9, 2015 at 13:05
