Fullcalendar with Twitter Bootstrap Popover

Fullcalendar with Twitter Bootstrap Popover

I am trying to get Fullcalendar working with twitter boostrap popovers.
if I click an event, i want to show some details in the popover.
So first added this lil snippet to Fullcalendar:
eventClick: function(event, jsEvent, view) {
$this = $(this);
$this.popover({html:true,title:event.title,placement:’top’}).popover(‘show’);
return false;
},

But now I run into 2 problems:

Fullcalendar is inside a div that has overflow:hidden or something, because the popover gets cut on the border of Fullcalendar. How do I fix that?
Similar to problem 2 I would like to place the popover via a function on top, left, right or bottom depending on the position where the event is in the Fullcalendar grid. How can i do such a function?

thanks!

Solution 1:

From version 2.3 bootstrap now has a “container” option for popovers which appends the popover to a specific element.

just add {container:'body'} to append it to the body

$this.popover({html:true,title:event.title,placement:'top',container:'body'}).popover('show');

Solution 2:

This code helped me

$('#calendar').fullCalendar({
    eventRender: function (event, element) {
        element.popover({
            title: event.name,
            placement: 'right',
            content: + '<br />Start: ' + event.starts_at + '<br />End: ' + event.ends_at + '<br />Description: ' + event.description,
        });
    }
});

bootstrap version – 2.3.2, full calendar – 1.6.4

Solution 3:

Append the popover to the calendar container to scroll the popover with the calendar.

            $(jsEvent.target).popover({
                html: true,
                container:'#calendar',
                placement: 'right'
            });

For days ;

        dayClick: function (date, jsEvent, view) {
            //return eventCreate(date, null, jsEvent, view);
            var CurrentDay = $(this);

            CurrentDay.popover({
                html: true,
                placement: 'auto',
                title: date.format(),
                container:'#calendar',
                content: function() {
                    setTimeout(function () {
                        CurrentDay.popover('hide');
                    }, 2000);
                    return $("#popover-day").html();
                }
            });
            CurrentDay.popover('toggle');
    },

For Events;

        eventRender: function (event, element, view){
        var dStart = event.title
        element.popover({
            animation: true,
            placement: 'top',
            html: true,
            container: 'body',
            title: dStart,
            trigger: 'click',
            content: function() {
                setTimeout(function () {
                    element.popover('hide');
                }, 2000);
                return $('#popover-content').html();
            }
        });
    },

In your HTML;

<ul id="popover-content" class="list-group" style="display: none">
  <a href="#" id="Eventaaa" class="list-group-item" onclick="aaa();">aaa</a>
  <a href="#" id="Eventbbb" class="list-group-item" onclick="bbb();">bbb</a>
  <a href="#" id="Eventccc" class="list-group-item" onclick="ccc();">ccc</a>
</ul>

<ul id="popover-day" class="list-group" style="display: none">
  <a href="#" id="Dayaaa" class="list-group-item" onclick="fDayaaa();">aaa</a>
  <a href="#" id="Dayyyy" class="list-group-item" onclick="fDayyyy();">yyy</a>
  <a href="#" id="Dayxxx" class="list-group-item" onclick="fDayxxx();">xxx</a>
</ul>
