i have a calendar object on my asp.net page, and i'm trying to bind a dataset to it. the calendar object doesn't have a datasource property like a datagrid does, but it does have a databind method. is there a way to bind a dataset (or datareader) to a calendar?

thanks in advance.

No, you can't bind a data to calendar control. What is the purpose of binding a recordset to a calendar?

That you can do by handling DayRender event. In that event you can access Day that is being rendered. And corresponding to that you can get information from data source where you have all the information. And then change the text for that Day cell.

yes, but i was trying to avoid that. i figured they would allow some sort of data binding which would eliminate the need to parse through a dataset and get the data and if it's the correct date, update the text of the cell...

Unfortunately thats the only option you have. And DataBind method is only for the controls that expose DataSource property. Otherwise its a no-op.
