Hi kbraju76,

i assumer that you use Calendar control
to rise an event on selecting date, you have to assign to the calendar control the event SelectionChanged

 Calendar1.SelectionChanged += new EventHandler(this.Selection_Change);
      void Selection_Change(Object sender, EventArgs e)
        //do your functionality        

AddHandler Calendar1.SelectionChanged, AddressOf Selection_Change
      Sub Selection_Change(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
        'do your functionality        
      End Sub

also if you want this event to rise every time when you change the date, not only when click on a global submit button
you have to set AutoPostBack=true for the calendar control

In the User control code-behind (.ascx.cs) file,

I am assuming a simple button..

Declare the event as
public event EventHandler Click;

Declare a Method to raise event
protected virtual void OnClick(EventArgs e)
    if (Click != null)

Attach Event handler delegate
this.Button1.Click += new System.EventHandler(this.Button1_Click);

And handle the event
private void Button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    this.Value -= 1;

Hope that helps..
And in the code behind for the Web form that contains the user control..

private void UserControl1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)

first of all, please do not post questions as a feed back - Thanks!!
for your question:
the code that i've posted you have to add in the ascx file ( if not use code behind ) or in your code behind file
also you have to replace the Calendar1 with the ID of your calendar control
