Currently, it's impossible to create a legend based on taxonomy terms if they are referred to by using an entity reference field (instead of a term reference field).
Adding support for entity reference also allows to create the striping/legend based on other entity types (as long as there are not too much entities that can be referenced by the field).

This is awesome! It worked perfectly to allow me to colour nodes with different taxonomy terms referenced via entity_reference.

Any documentation possible with patch? I'm not having success with a taxonomy legend using the referenced node's terms.

My trial, for reservations, keelboats, and keelboat's terms-

  1. Create view (type calendar).
  2. Format: Calendar, style Calendar entities
  3. Contextual filter: Date, using reservation dates
  4. Relationship: field_reservation_keelboat
  5. Fields: keelboat_terms

I'm not having luck using the relationship or terms for a legend though. Thanks for any advice.

I Assume the field 'keelboat_terms' is an Entity Reference field here.

After adding the field:

  1. Click Settings next to 'Calendar Entities'
  2. Legend Colors -> Stripes: choose "Based on Entity Reference"
  3. Entity Reference Field: choose your field 'keelboat_terms'
  4. Set the colors for each entity that can be referenced by the field 'keelboat_terms'

I think you need to save and re-open the Calendar Entities Settings page between step 2 and 3 or between step 3 and 4.

I'll try it - many thanks.

The Drupal-core Form API doesn't provide "#dependency", that seems to come from a contrib module like Form Dependencies.

We should rewrite this patch to use #states.

@fizk: I got the #dependency from the code that already exists in the module now: it is also used in the other legend options (taxonomy, og, ...).

It seems to come from ctools. See!ctools!includes!de...

just like to say thanks for the patch!

...I was trying to use/learn calendar and also had a tax entry using entity references and at first couldn't figure out why I couldn't find it in the legend headings.

anyway, thanks again!
