I have a search form with a couple of textboxes, dropdownlist controls and a Ajax calendar control. What I would like to do is to show, when picked a date from the calendar, this date in a label control in a ddd, MMM dd, yyyy format. Further I have a range validator to check if the picked date is in the future. If okay submit search form. My question is: can I store the picked date in a hidden field in short date format and manipulate this date to the above format and put this in a label control? I would like to use the hidden field value to query data when submitting the search from. I hope someone out there can help me how to tackle this. Many thanks in advance.
