As you can see below I have a text box and a popup calendar. Is there a way to make the TextBox ReadOnly or Enabled=False so only the popup calendar can edit the textbox. I only want the user to be able to change the date via the popup control, but if it is ReadOnly or Disabled, it shows the new values but it dosen't hold them as the value.

<%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" Inherits="PaymentsLog.Web.Controls.DatePicker"
    Codebehind="DatePicker.ascx.cs" %>
<span style="white-space: nowrap;">
<asp:TextBox ID="txtDate" runat="server" Columns="10"></asp:TextBox>
    <asp:ImageButton ID="imgButton" OnClientClick="return false;" runat="server" ImageUrl="~/App_Themes/Default/img/calendar.jpg" />
<act:CalendarExtender ID="calExt" runat="server" FirstDayOfWeek="Monday" PopupButtonID="imgButton"
        TargetControlID="txtDate" Format="yyyy/MM/dd" Animated="False">
