Description

At least one user didn't realize that you could scroll through the years of a calendar by holding down the mouse over the next year, rather than clicking over and over again. It makes me think that the next/previous year should have arrows rather than being listed as 2007 and 2009.

If there's general agreement then let's change it.

Obviously there's a lot of debate about the calendar widget, with possible enhancements including having drop downs for month/year, etc., but this is a more practical change that can be done quickly.

well, we've been living with this design a while, so people might also expect it to stay the way it is. I suppose a compromise would be to add small arrows on the outside of the years

I mailed Julie about this a long time ago but never got a response.

It's certainly possible people wouldn't expect a change, although OTOH it might make it more obvious that you could scroll by holding down the mouse (or by a long touch).

Anyway, I [temporarily] removed the typematic behavior in the CalendarLite refactor so that would need to go back in first. I might reconsider that change for 1.7 as it is now hard to scroll back a number of years.

Not much point in switching this for 1.x, and in 2.0 the Calendar is likely to be very different (like spinwheels), so closing this ticket.
