I have looked for mouse over JS calander, not the new window pop up calendar.
When the user mouse over the link or button, the calendar is showed up and it can be selected month day and year. Pretty straght forward question.

Thank you

Its is easy to convert a pop up calendar into a mouse over calendar using a hidden DIV element and loading the calendar in that DIV.  Only problem is that you'll have to do some extra coding for positioning but again you can always have a reusable function that does that.  I am ready to help you write such code if you give me more details

You can download the calendar I mentioned at: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/jscalendar/jscalendar-0.9.6.zip?download

As far as mouseOut and mouseOver goes- here's one way you can do it with this calendar:

1)  For the mouseover, when you call the Calendar.setup constructior, add the value pair:
              eventName     : "mouseover"

For example: In the test-position.html (root directory the distribution) change:

            Calendar.setup({
              inputField    : "cal-field-1",
              button         : "cal-button-1",
              align           : "Tr"
            });

to

            Calendar.setup({
              inputField    : "cal-field-1",
              button         : "cal-button-1",
              align           : "Tr",
              eventName  : "mouseover"
            });

This will make the mouseover on the '...' button pop up the calendar.

2) For the mouseout, you will have to modify the calendar.js file:

 a) Add a js function in this file (calendar.js):

    Calendar.calMouseOut = function(ev) {
      var el = Calendar.getTargetElement(ev);
      if ( el && el.id == 'someId' ) {
        window.calendar.callCloseHandler();
        Calendar.stopEvent(ev);
      }
    };

 b) Find the function in the calendar.js file that has this signature:
       Calendar.prototype.create = function (_par) :
 
     There is a block of code in this function that looks like this:

     if (this.isPopup) {
        div.style.position = "absolute";
        div.style.display = "none";
     }

     we need to add two lines in this block to fire the mouseout event:

     if (this.isPopup) {
        div.style.position = "absolute";
        div.style.display = "none";
->    div.id='someId';
->    calendar.addEvent(div, "mouseout", Calendar.calMouseOut);
     }

That's it.  Now the calendar will pop up when the mouse is over the button and it will disappear when the mouse is moved out of the calendar.
