Peek Daily Event Details on a Reference Calendar

      Disclosed is a peek function on a reference calendar.  It
allows users to see different daily event details without leaving the
current daily view.

The peek function is proposed with the following features:

     The peek function proposed here reveals information of container
     objects.

     Users can point to any date on a reference calendar and press
     down the FIRST mouse button and daily event details are
displayed
     in a temporary pop-up window.  Once the mouse button is
released,
     the pop-up window goes away.

     Users can also peek on the month tab of their reference calendar
     to display the selected month.

Users will notice the following benefits:

1.  The suggested peek function provides a quick and easy way to get
    the information of daily event details from a different day
    without leaving the current view.  Therefore, it is more flexible
    and usable.

2.  When this concept is applied to weekly summary view and monthly
    summary view, it provides the additional benefit that daily event
    details are displayed without going to separate daily views.
