Perspective Calendar

We are pleased to announce the beta release of our new perspective calendar module.

Head to to get a trial download link, and see the documentation (still being constructed). You may even find a different free module…

We would really appreciate any feedback, and we’d love to see your screenshots!

Currently compatible from 8.0.3 onwards. No support for 8.1 yet.


This module has been updated to correct a resizing issue within coordinate containers. Please note, the calendar component must be placed either within a Flex container, or a coordinate container.

Please expose style property for every section so we can custom the overall look.

The component will inherit the styling section of the container it is inside, additionally the following styling options are available:

  • Background – Can be set to a solid colour or a gradient using a colour array provided. The opacity can be set and the gradient can be modified with a rotation or location depending on which gradient style is used.
  • Title – The font color, size, weight and family can be defined. A separator can also be defined for when a date range is shown.
  • Buttons – The button colour, text font and colour of the active button can be defined.

And on events:

  • borderColor: The color around the border of the event.
  • backgroundColor: The color in the background of the event box. Also used in the dots at the side of the list view.
  • textColor: The color of the text on the event.

Event Display

  • Color – The default background and border colour of the events.
  • Background Color – The default background colour of the events. Overrides the Color property
  • Border Color – The default border color of the events.
  • Font – The colour, weight, size and family can all be set.

If there is sufficient interest, we can look to add more options.


The Perspective Calendar module has been updated to support Ignition Version 8.1.

The 8.1 version of the module now also supports rrule recurrence for repeating events.

Hi @jonathan.taylor,

Does the licensing/module support redundant gateways?

Absolutely - pricing follows IA redundancy pricing with the redundant licence at 50%.
