Hi,

I'm trying to display a calendar using c# asp.net. I have a basic calendar but its too small and i cant figure out what properties i need to  use to change the size of the calendar, so that the calendar takes up 375 pixels by 250 px and also make each square that each date sits in larger to fill the larger calendar grid?

thanks Charlie
<asp:Calendar id="Calendar1"
     OnSelectionChanged="Date_Selected"
     SelectionMode="DayWeekMonth"
     Font-Name="Verdana" 
     Font-Size="12px"
     NextPrevFormat="ShortMonth"
     SelectWeekText="week"
     SelectMonthText="month"
     runat="server">
 
   <TodayDayStyle Font-Bold="True"/>
   <DayHeaderStyle Font-Bold="True"/>
   <OtherMonthDayStyle ForeColor="gray"/>
   <TitleStyle BackColor="#3366ff"
               ForeColor="white"
               Font-Bold="True"/>
 
   <SelectedDayStyle BackColor="#ffcc66"
                     Font-Bold="True"/>
   <NextPrevStyle ForeColor="white"
                  Font-Size="10px"/>
   <SelectorStyle BackColor="#99ccff" 
                  ForeColor="navy"
                  Font-Size="9px"/>
</asp:Calendar>

add Width="375px" Height="250px" to the <asp:Calendar tag

try playing with Font-Size attribute
i tried using Font-Size="Larger" and Font-Size="X-Large" and they were filling the calendar quite well

Thanks, I'm not at  my work pc at the moment but i'm sure that will do the job. I guess I should of just tried adding the size to the table as it was kind of obvious. Easy to say when you have the answer in front of you though, so thanks for the help.
