additional datefield in contact form and calendar displaying

Postby s.dietrich » Thu Oct 31, 2013 10:03 am

Hi,
we are looking for a difficult customization.
Add an new datefield under the birthday field in the contact form and show the name (like a birthday) in the calendar.

I have the following clues:
- database extension
- MVC (model view controler) of contact
- MVC (model view controler) of calendar

Did I forget anything?

Must I edit the upstream source code or can i customize it with my own module?

Thanks and best regards.

The best way is not to edit the upstream code. But add the fields dynamically and add the calendar response with an event.

It's difficult to explain on the forum. You need to dig into the system and have programming experience.
