can end time be calculated?

One of our event databases tracked events as start-time and duration.

Can I setup and aliased field (like id(end)) in the render_table method and use a “beforeRender” event to go ahead and calculate the actual end times based on start-time + duration?

Yep, you can use something like

function alter_time($data){ $time = $data->get_value(start)+$data->get_value(duration); //probably some more complex logic need to be used $data->set_value("duration",$time); } $some->event->attach("beforeRender", "alter_time") $some->render_table("table","id","start,duration,text");

Names of start, end, text parameters doesn’t matter , so you need not care about aliases
