I am using this calendar (http://www.dynarch.com/demos/jscalendar/) to pass events to a Coldfusion page.

The calendar for my site is located here: http://www.barreport.com/publicsite/viewevents/jscalendar2.cfm

You click on a date and it shows the events for that date.

Now, my only issue is a stupid one, I would like to place the calendar into the table that's displayed on the link above. The only thing is that it's a royal pain in the ass to simply move the calendar and place it into the table.

I've read the documentation, but, I still cant seem to move the calendar around.

  <!-- main calendar program -->

  <!-- language for the calendar -->

  <script type="text/javascript" src="../../Scripts/jscalendar-1.0/lang/calendar-en.js"></script>
 

  <!-- the following script defines the Calendar.setup helper function, which makes

       adding a calendar a matter of 1 or 2 lines of code. -->

  <script type="text/javascript" src="../../Scripts/jscalendar-1.0/calendar-setup.js"></script>

<link href="../../Scripts/jscalendar-1.0/calendar-win2k-1.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

<!---END OF Calendar--->

<body>

<table width="100" border="1"  >

  <tr>

    <td id="calendar-container">

	<script type="text/javascript">

  function dateChanged(calendar) {

    // Beware that this function is called even if the end-user only

    // changed the month/year.  In order to determine if a date was

    // clicked you can use the dateClicked property of the calendar:

    if (calendar.dateClicked) {

      // OK, a date was clicked, redirect to /yyyy/mm/dd/index.php

      var y = calendar.date.getFullYear();

      var m = calendar.date.getMonth();     // integer, 0..11

      var d = calendar.date.getDate();      // integer, 1..31

      // redirect...

      window.location = "calendarEvents.cfm?eventDate=" + (m+1) + "/" + d + "/" + y;

	  

    }

  };
 

  Calendar.setup(

    {

      flat         : "calendar-container", // ID of the parent element

      flatCallback : dateChanged           // our callback function

    }

  );

</script>

	

	

	</td>

  </tr>

</table>
 
 
 
 
 
 

</body>

</html>

Looks like youl need to open the CSS file that is here:
http://www.barreport.com/Scripts/jscalendar-1.0/calendar-win2k-1.css

Check out the first entry in that file::

.calendar {
      position: relative;
      display: none;
      border-top: 1px solid #fff;
      border-right: 1px solid #000;
      border-bottom: 1px solid #000;
      border-left: 1px solid #fff;
      font-size: 9px;
      color: #000;
      cursor: default;
      background: #d4d0c8;
      font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
      left: 62px;
      top: 187px;
}

Experiment with the "left" and "top" values to position your calendar.
