How can I populate fields from my calendar control day render event

I'm using a Calendar control to view events that are coming from a SQL DB. I can show multiple events per day within the DayRender method by looping through a collection of calendar items. The Calendar control sits within an AJAX Update control. What I want to do is have the ability for users to select a link for a particular event that will populate some textbox controls so that I can then edit/save/delete the calendar item.

The way I'm doing it now is a bit cumbersome and also it refreshes the page which I do not want it to do.
Any ideas on a better more elegant solution would be greatly appreciated.

I've attached the DayRender method

Many thanks
e.Cell.VerticalAlign = VerticalAlign.Top;
        e.Cell.Style.Add("Height", "60px");
        e.Cell.Style.Add("CellPadding", "1px");
        e.Cell.Controls.Add(new LiteralControl("<table ID=\"tblCal\" width='100%'>"));
        CalendarItemsFacade cal = new CalendarItemsFacade();
        foreach (ICalendarItems calendarItem in cal.GetAllCalendarItems())
            if (calendarItem.EventDate == e.Day.Date)
                e.Day.IsSelectable = false;
                e.Cell.BackColor = ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#64a8ef");
                HyperLink myLink = new HyperLink();
                if (calendarItem.Title.Length >= 10)
                    string myString = calendarItem.Title.Substring(0, 7);
                    myLink.Text = myString.PadRight(10, '.');
                    myLink.Text = calendarItem.Title;
                e.Cell.Controls.Add(new LiteralControl("<tr><td style=\"width:98px\" valign=\"top\" align=\"left\"><li><a href='default.aspx?calID=" + calendarItem.ID + " '>" + myLink.Text + "</a></li></td></tr>"));
        e.Cell.Controls.Add(new LiteralControl("</table>"));

so what you mean is that you need to click on a date and you must get a ability to enter some fields and they need to be attached to the date you just clicked?

Basically I have multiple events per day, in my case the title of the event is a hyperlink that when I click it I want to populate title, description and date text boxes on the form
