Step 6

Go to activity_main.xml then click the text bottom. This xml file contains the designing code for android app. Into the activity_main.xml copy and paste the below code.

Activity_main.xml code

  1. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>  
  2. <android.support.constraint.ConstraintLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"  
  3.     xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"  
  4.     xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"  
  5.     android:layout_width="match_parent"  
  6.     android:layout_height="match_parent"  
  7.     tools:context="ganeshannt.calendarview.MainActivity">  
  8.   
  9.     <TextView  
  10.         android:id="@+id/date"  
  11.         android:layout_width="0dp"  
  12.         android:layout_height="51dp"  
  13.         android:text="Date"  
  14.         android:textAlignment="center"  
  15.         android:textSize="45dp"  
  16.         android:visibility="visible"  
  17.         app:layout_constraintBottom_toBottomOf="parent"  
  18.         app:layout_constraintHorizontal_bias="0.0"  
  19.         app:layout_constraintLeft_toLeftOf="parent"  
  20.         app:layout_constraintRight_toRightOf="parent"  
  21.         app:layout_constraintTop_toTopOf="parent"  
  22.         app:layout_constraintVertical_bias="0.219" />  
  23.   
  24.     <Button  
  25.         android:id="@+id/btngocalendar"  
  26.         android:layout_width="266dp"  
  27.         android:layout_height="47dp"  
  28.         android:text="Go to calendar"

  30.         tools:layout_editor_absoluteY="8dp" />  
  31.   
  32. </android.support.constraint.ConstraintLayout>  

 

Android

Step 7

Create new calendar_layout.xml file (File ⇒ New ⇒Activity⇒Empty_activity).

Go to calendar_layout.xml then click the text bottom. This xml file contains the designing code for android app. Into the calendar_layout.xml copy and paste the below code

calendar_layout.xml code

  1. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>  
  2. <LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"  
  3.     android:orientation="vertical" android:layout_width="match_parent"  
  4.     android:layout_height="match_parent">  
  5.   
  6.     <CalendarView  
  7.         android:id="@+id/calendarView"  
  8.         android:layout_width="match_parent"  
  9.         android:layout_height="wrap_content" />  
  10. </LinearLayout>

Step 8

Into the MainActivity.java copy and paste the below code.java programming is the backend language for android. Do not replace your package name otherwise app will not run.

MainActivity.java code

  1. package ganeshannt.calendarview;  
  2.   
  3. import android.content.Intent;  
  4. import android.os.Bundle;  
  5. import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;  
  6. import android.view.View;  
  7. import android.widget.Button;  
  8. import android.widget.TextView;  
  9.   
  10. public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {  
  11.   
  12.     private static final String TAG = "MainActivity";  
  13.   
  14.     private TextView thedate;  
  15.     private Button btngocalendar;  
  16.   
  17.     @Override  
  18.     protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {  
  19.         super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);  
  20.         setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);  
  21.         thedate = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.date);  
  22.         btngocalendar = (Button) findViewById(R.id.btngocalendar);  
  23.   
  24.         Intent incoming = getIntent();  
  25.         String date = incoming.getStringExtra("date");  
  26.         thedate.setText(date);  
  27.   
  28.         btngocalendar.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {  
  29.             @Override  
  30.             public void onClick(View v) {  
  31.                 Intent intent = new Intent(MainActivity.this,CalendarActivity.class);  
  32.                 startActivity(intent);  
  33.             }  
  34.         });  
  35.     }  
  36. }  

 

Step 9

Create new CalendarActivity.java file (File ⇒ New ⇒Java class).

Into the CalendarActivity.java copy and paste the below code.java programming is the backend language for android. Do not replace your package name otherwise app will not run.

CalendarActivity.java code

  1. package ganeshannt.calendarview;  
  2.   
  3. import android.content.Intent;  
  4. import android.os.Bundle;  
  5. import android.support.annotation.Nullable;  
  6. import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;  
  7. import android.util.Log;  
  8. import android.widget.CalendarView;  
  9.   
  10. /** 
  11.  * Created by ganesh on 6/10/2017. 
  12.  */  
  13.   
  14. public class CalendarActivity extends AppCompatActivity {  
  15.   
  16.     private  static final String TAG = "CalendarActivity";  
  17.     private CalendarView mCalendarView;  
  18.     @Override  
  19.     protected void onCreate(@Nullable Bundle savedInstanceState) {  
  20.         super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);  
  21.         setContentView(R.layout.calendar_layout);  
  22.         mCalendarView = (CalendarView) findViewById(R.id.calendarView);  
  23.         mCalendarView.setOnDateChangeListener(new CalendarView.OnDateChangeListener() {  
  24.             @Override  
  25.             public void onSelectedDayChange(CalendarView CalendarView, int year, int month, int dayOfMonth) {  
  26.               String date = year + "/" + month + "/"+ dayOfMonth ;  
  27.                 Log.d(TAG, "onSelectedDayChange: yyyy/mm/dd:" + date);  
  28.                 Intent intent = new Intent(CalendarActivity.this,MainActivity.class);  
  29.                 intent.putExtra("date",date);  
  30.                 startActivity(intent);  
  31.   
  32.             }  
  33.         });  
  34.     }  
  35. }  
Step 10

Add the calendaractivity into the androidmanifest.xml so add below code into the AndroidManifest.xml.

AndroidManifest.xml code
  1. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>  
  2. <manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"  
  3.     package="ganeshannt.calendarview">  
  4.   
  5.     <application  
  6.         android:allowBackup="true"  
  7.         android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher"  
  8.         android:label="@string/app_name"  
  9.         android:roundIcon="@mipmap/ic_launcher_round"  
  10.         android:supportsRtl="true"  
  11.         android:theme="@style/AppTheme">  
  12.         <activity android:name=".MainActivity">  
  13.             <intent-filter>  
  14.                 <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />  
  15.   
  16.                 <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />  
  17.             </intent-filter>  
  18.         </activity>  
  19.         <activity android:name=".CalendarActivity"></activity>  
  20.     </application>  
  21.   
  22. </manifest>  
Step 11
