Write this code in the source code. The textbox ID should be defined as given by you. TargetControlID refers to the control you want to display the calendar on click. I've given a Textbox as a ControlID, so this means when I click on the Textbox, the Calendar will show up.

You can give a button as the PopupButtonID, if you want the the calendar to show up on the click on the button.


 <asp:TextBox id="txtdate" runat="server" Font-Size="Small" Font-Names="Palatino Linotype"></asp:TextBox>
         <cc1:CalendarExtender ID="CalendarExtender1" runat="server" TargetControlID=txtdate Enabled="True">

<<TargetControlID refers to the control you want to display the calendar on click. I've given a Textbox as a ControlID, so this means when I click on the Textbox, the Calendar will show up>>

My mistake. TargetControlID refers to the control in which you want to store the date when clicked.
