Month View: The default view for the myBook calendar is the Month View. This is a generic month view in the calendar and will display your events for each day in a date grid. The events in the date grid are distinguished by different colors that you would have set during its creation. Also, recurring events can be distinguished by a symbol “@” in the event blocks. The current date will be highlighted by a reddish background. Weekends will be shaded in gray color. The Month View has buttons to scroll between the previous and the next month, and also has buttons to switch the views. Clicking on a date will switch to Date View for that particular date.
