calendar_monthly header still showing



  • This is from the config directions of the module
    showHeader This allows you to turn on or off the header on the calendar. The header consists of the month and year.
    true - Other option is false.

    {
                    	module: 'calendar_monthly',
                    	position: 'top_left',
                    	config: {
                            showHeader: 'false',
    			cssStyle: 'block', // block, clean, custom, (slate is for no mirror)
    			updateDelay: 5 // 5 secs default
                    }
                	},
    

    However, even with the showHeader set to false, I still have a one with the month and year showing.
    Any ideas?

    @Mykle1 when handling false/true I don’t think you are supposed to use ’ ’ around it.
    Should be handled like numbers.

    Well, I’m an idiot! Thanks bro. I’ll change that right now.

    That did the trick. :clap_tone2:

    @Mykle1

    Yes true and false in that case are used as a boolean so you don’t use ’ ’ or " " :)

    
    Very often, in programming, you will need a data type that can only have one of two values, like
    
    YES / NO
    ON / OFF
    TRUE / FALSE
    For this, JavaScript has a Boolean data type. It can only take the values true or false.
    
    
    

    I had to learn that too :)



  • @Mykle1 In case you want to know why:

    'false' is a string and a string always represents the boolean true, so 'test', 'true' and 'false' all become true it doesn’t matter what the content of the string is.

    So, the single quotes ' are what make it a string? Meaning, whatever is inside single quotes is considered a string?
    And if that is so, then what is the word true or false without the quotes called? A value? A parameter?

    Obviously, I’m still confused, but thank you for the lesson.



  • @Mykle1 everything in single or double quotes is a string, string is a type for text.

    There are multiple types:

    • object {}
    • array []
    • number 2, -17 and 3.14
    • string "I am a string" and 'me too'
    • boolean true or false

    Ok, thank you. I do appreciate the information. Some of it is starting to make sense. I’ve learned quite a bit in the short time that I’ve been here.
