I have a textbox where you need a date, I have an icon next to it which is a calendar, i would like to make the field populate with the date after you click on the icon. When you click on the icon, a calendar needs to visible. I tried the calendar control with some javascript and it doesn't work. I think I need a form tag.

<asp: DetailsView ID="DV1">
<asp: textbox name="date"/>
<asp: Calendar ID="dateCalendar">
...
</asp: Calendar>
</asp: DetailsView>

Could you help me on this? I don't know if the Calendar works in the DV?

marcivry,
take a look at this post. I have already answered this kind of question here and the solution works fine with a div
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Dot_Net/ASP_DOT_NET/Q_21912671.html

heres the code

<%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="TestCalendar.vb" Inherits="TestCalendar" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
<script type="text/javascript">
function ToggleCal(){
if(document.getElementById('divCal').style.display=='none')
document.getElementById('divCal').style.display='block'
else
document.getElementById('divCal').style.display='none';
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
<div>
<asp:Label ID="lblDate" runat="server" CssClass="lbl" Text="Click Here To View Calendar"></asp:Label>
</div>
<div id="divCal" style="position: absolute; right: 380px; top: 330px; display: none;">
                        <asp:Calendar ID="CalBook" runat="server" NextMonthText=" >" CssClass="Cal" NextPrevStyle-CssClass="NextPrev" TodayDayStyle-CssClass="TodayStyle"

one more thing I just seen your DetailView and you can use something like this

Protected Sub CalBook_SelectionChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles CalBook.SelectionChanged
        Dim Tempcal as calendar=Ctype(me.DetailView.rows.item(the index where the control is in the detailview),Calendar) 'declare the control and cast it

Me.lblDate.Text = TempCal.SelectedDate.ToShortDateString 'show the selected date in the label control

        CalBook.VisibleDate = Me.CalBook.SelectedDate 'make sure the calendar control knows which date is selected when its hidden

    End Sub

When you state index of the control, do you mean, where is it in relationship to the other controls?

I have listed:

First Name
Last Name
SS#
Symbol
Rank
Birth Date

Birthdate is where i want the calendar to show so the index is 5?

Also, div tags are not allowed in the DetailsView in .NET, so how do you remedy that?
