2. Component’s properties

Once you have dropped Week Calendar component on “My Component” area, “Component’s properties” area will show you component’s details.

Week Calendar setting ask you to select components from drop down menu. If menu is empty (none) it means you missed to add the component on “My components” area.

Drag and drop to “My Components” area the component you need:  in this case we need a Switch as sample.

3. Manadatory components

Once you have dropped the necessary component to “My Component” area, you would need to set Week Calendar properties. Select your Week Calendar component and check on its properties area. Select the Switch component from the drop down menu.

4. Component’s parameters

You now need to schedule the week calendar for the selected light. Below is the parameters area where you can edit the calendar. As soon as you select “Edit”, the Week editor window will appear in front of you.

Work out your calendar and then confirm the configuration.

5. User Interface creation

Once you have set all  properties and parameters switch to Map Interface tab of EVE Manager software and build your end user interface.

Drag and drop on the canvas area the Switch component if you want to control it manually. Note that you will not have to drop on the cavas area the Week Calendar component. Week Calendar will only manage the lighting calendar you previously scheduled for the specific Switch component.

Once you will have built the user interface upload the project to EVE and check the final result on your EVE Remote application.
