Thumbs up
Very nice little app! Maybe, integration with Diamond Tweak by Montecristoff (in order to set your prog, as a left soft panel at Manila), could be interesting!

Thank you for your work.

Thanks for your feedback.

I'm working to integrate this app with standard Calendar. I think the better solution is to replace default "new appointment" form with my application when you click on "new appointment" of the Agenda menu.

Great Work & Thanks for Sharing.....
Just installed and already tried it - works really well Thanks for sharing your hard work......

It would be great if this could be either made into a stand-alone Tab or even linked in with the work D-Man666 has already done on the Calendar Tab????

Good luck and keep it comming!

I'm not sure to understand... (sorry for my bad english)
All the "^" button decrease values (ex. day 9 to 8, houre 12 to 11...) and all the fields (day, mounth, year...) are totally indipendents.

Really useful nice app. Many thanks.

I attached it to left key of Second Today and launching it instead of standard Calendar from this place.

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Today\Keys\112
Open="Program Files\GekoNewCal\GekoNewCal.exe"

Then soft reset.
I'm thinking of adding it to "Exclude" in task manager for launching it quickly, but dunno if it would drain much battery when in background.

Update.
I tried to exclude the app from removing it from memory but "Cancel" option always shuts this app regardless if it is on "exclude" list or not.

Thanks for your feedback, crocodile010!

Yes, you are right, I defined that "Cancel" button shuts the application to reduce battery and memory usage.
If is more useful I can change this behavior in the next version, maybe with a messagebox that ask "Close or hide" app.
