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.

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

<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.
