This is a simple module to fulfill requests here and here.

It's an adaptation of the original smali mods to the Google Calendar found here by @shaftenberg. There's preferences to allow you to customize how the event text looks in Google Calendar month view.

Tested against Google Calendar 20140414.

I didn't have time to find/create an app icon for the module; I'll get to it eventually.App icon added to v1.1

Standard xposed module stuff; install Xposed Framework, enable app_process, reboot. Install this module, enable in Xposed Installer->Modules, reboot.

Also available in the Xposed Repo.

Source is available at my github

Not unless the Google Calendar comes with a widget already. This module just takes the manual smali edits that were normally needed to enable event text in month view and makes it so you don't have to do any of that.

Hi agentdr8
thanks so much! Great! I tried to built a quite easier module without success. But Im new to java coding and still learning.
I wonder if you would send me the source code of your app, for digging into it for studying and learning?
One little bug in your module is the events text size in the first row of the month view. Your text size modifications are used for nearly all calender fields, but wont be used for the text in several fields. If I change the view to landscape and back, or to week view and back, all fields are fine. So this bug only exist, when I even open the calendar app. Please take a look at the picture here:

Yep, I'll post the code to my github and link it on the OP.

I'll see what I can find. It seems to only be on days on the first line of the screen, whether it's previous month or partial new month, so it's probably a different view that needs modifying.Found occurrences in the middle of a month prev/next to current. Hmm.

Its always a whole row -> this means a whole week in the month few.
Do you need logcats? If so, where is the logcat stored (path), when I enable this function in your menue?

I don't believe any errors will be thrown in this case. The debugging output goes to the xposed error.log, but this seems to be caused by the view getting inflated prior to the values being modified. I'll be digging through the GCal code some more today to see if I can figure it out.

Uploaded new version to repo and OP. Found the issue causing the odd text size bug and it should be resolved now. Also added an app icon. Enjoy.

I'll get the source up to github later today.

Thanks for sharing this. I've always hated the fact this wasn't a native feature of GCal.
I've even sent feedback several times requesting in. Even had a response one time asking me to elaborate. Thanks again!
