=) hi fellow experts, i'm new to CF, but program alot in access and VBA.

In access I have a calendar control, double-click, and small calendar pops up. Double-click (or press enter) on date to use that date.   I'm looking to do the same in cold Fusion MX, but have no idea where to start.  (it's like moving to a foreign country and leaving my translator at home).

Thanks in advance.

You need to start by looking at Javascript not COld Fusion.

Cold Fusion is a server side language.  It runs on the server not the client machine.

You can think of it as the VB code that runs in the background of access doing table inserts/ updates/selects/etc

The client computer just gets html/javascript.  You can think of the client side as the forms in access.

So if there is a form effect that you want then you need to look into javascript not cold fusion.

There are many pop-up calendars out there for javascript :

and many more...

Some free others not....

You can look at these or even do a Google search to get one that meets your specific needs.
