Help with DateTimePicker

Hi,
I want to have a Date Picker in an HTML page, for an "intranet" application, not served by a web server, but it just runs the code on the htm page.
I'm trying this in the form:
<object classid="java:com.ms.wfc.ui.DateTimePicker" id="DateTimePicker" align="middle" height="30" width="300"> </object>
but when running the page with internet explorer 6 or more, I just get a small square with a red X inside.

What am I doing wrong? How do I have to set the browser options, security zones, etc?

Thanks!

P.D. I'm using Expression Web to edit it and it appears to be an active-x control.

I'm doing this now...

<td height="50" align="right" style="width: 368px">
<form><br><script>DateInput('callbackdate', true)</script></form>
</td>

And then, when a certain button is pressed, a javascript function is called and I want to get the date value. How do I do that? It's telling me that callbackdate is undefined.

Note, I don't have any other <form> ... </form> in the code.

Thanks.

<td align="left"><script>DateInput('DateWanted', true, 'MM/DD/YYYY')</script></td>

The form will post the variable DateWanted

In MM/DD/YYYY format.  You can change the format with this script to MM-DD-YYYY or whatever.  Thx

It doesn't work:

1. When I click on the calendar .jpg to bring up the calendar, it throws an error:
        Line: 80
        Char: 23
        Error: 'document.forms[...].elements is null or not an object.
It's referring to the calendarDateInput.js file:
        if (typeof document.forms[j].elements[i].type == 'string') {
Is that because I don't have <form></form> in my page?

2. Even if I don't use the calendar icon, but just choose the month & day from the pull downs, it doesn't carry the value until my javascript function when I alert(DateWanted.value).

Do you think you can help me out with either this js or with <object classid="java:com.ms.wfc.ui.DateTimePicker" id="DateTimePicker" align="middle" height="30" width="300"> </object> ?

Thanks!

DateInput('DateWanted', true, 'MM/DD/YYYY')

Did you try this?  DateWanted would be the value you gave the calander element.
