calendar date picker

Hi all,

I am using c# code behind/ASP.NET.

I need some code that will generate a "calendar date picker" ...eg i need a form with two text boxes with two calendar images next to them and when the calendar images are clicked a need a calendar to pop up and the user select a date and the date selected populates the text boxes.

If i could get this in  c# it would be great.  
If its javascript i will need details instructions on how and were to place the code because i am NOT a javascript user and dont know much about it.

so if someone could please help me it would be appreciated.

It will HAVE to be javascript as you want things to open/close on teh client end (i.e. calendar open, populate textbox, etc)

There are many out there.

If you want one wrapped in an asp.net control you could look at:

Otherwise there are free ones not in an asp.net wrapper like this:

Instructions to use are on the page, but here is how you would use with asp:textbox

In head of page put:
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="datetimepicker.js">

//Date Time Picker script- by TengYong Ng of http://www.rainforestnet.com
//Script featured on JavaScript Kit (http://www.javascriptkit.com)
//For this script, visit http://www.javascriptkit.com


In the body of the page put:

<asp:textbox id="calendar1" runat="Server" /><a href="javascript:NewCal('calendar1','MMddyyyy')"><img src="http://www.javascriptkit.com/script/script2/cal.gif" width="16" height="16" border="0" alt="Pick a date"></a>

Then on the backend you just access calendar1.Text - just like any other textbox
Oh you will also need to download the javascript file and place in your website.

The javascript file : datetimepicker.js
can be downloaded from the link in a zipfile, which also contains the images (so you can link to the image on your site instead of thiers, and demo pages.
