The Calendar module displays usernames to the right of the main calendar that you can select to show or hide that user's meetings. Where is the code for this behavior? I would like to extend it, but I haven't been able to figure out how it's doing what it's doing.

The calendar view display the list of username using the color attribute that takes a field to put a checkbox to filter the values of the field to be show or hide in the calendar view and also assign a color for each value. Take this as example

<calendar string="Meetings" date_start="start" date_stop="stop" date_delay="duration" all_day="allday" display="[name]" color="color_partner_id" attendee="partner_ids" avatar_model="res.partner" use_contacts="True" event_open_popup="347">

<field name="name"/>

<field name="user_id"/>

<field name="color_partner_id"/>

<field name="partner_ids"/>


be aware, Calendar module uses "use_contacts" which allow to only have a list of "friends". Standard calendar view add a filter for each occurrences in the calendar view of the current month.

Thanks. That's helpful. Does that mean that you can't change which model is used to populate that filter in the Calendar Module? For instance, I couldn't change it to filter by Meeting type? It sounds like you're saying that in another, standard calendar view I could setup a filter for whatever I want? Is that correct? Also, what does attendee do?
