I'm new to ASP but i've done a bit of work with VB.NET.  In VB .NET i have a DateTimePicker control that is basically a calendar in the drop down box format.  With ASP .NET the only thing i have is a Calendar control.  This control is pretty much the same is the VB .NET MonthCalendar control.  Is there any way to have a drop down style calendar in ASP .NET isntead of this big bulky one??? Thanks.

in asp.net there is only one calendar control, if you want drop down box calendar controls you can use lots of free javascript calendars

if you want to stick with asp.net calendar and make work with a popup or toggle its visibility you can do that easy with a little bit of clientside script

you can see the code on this post

Treeview is available in asp.net
if you are using 2.0 and vs.net 2005 you will find it under navigation submenu in the toolbox
