Hi All,
I have an aspx page, which has several textboxes, which has calendar icon next to it.When the user clicks on the icon, a little calendar control appears, just like the travel site.
But when the User clicks the icon, the parent window, moves up, taking the calendar control to the top of the page.The user has to scrool down to select the next textbox.
I want the calendar control to float next to the textbox, which calls it and The parent window to stop moving up.
Here is how i call my calendar.I tried setting the "top", It get to that point, but still parent window moves.
<asp:TextBox ID="txtStDate1"   runat="server" onfocus="this.blur();"></asp:TextBox>
                <%  Dim clickHandlerStart1 As String = String.Format("calendar_window=window.open('Controls/Calendar.aspx?textbox={0}','calendar_window','width=235,height=218,top=300,left=200,scrollbars=no,status=no,minimize=no,resizable=no);calendar_window.focus()", txtStDate1.ClientID)
                    CS1.HRef = "#"
                    CS1.Attributes.Add("onclick", clickHandlerStart1)%><a id ="CS1" runat="server"><img alt="PopUp Calendar" src="Images/popup-calendar.gif" />

Open in new window

Your best bet for this and future use would be to use the calendar extender in the ajax toolkit.

Thanks for the suggestion. I will try to use in future projects, but this does not need ajax right now, is there any other way , other than ajax, to stop it from moving?

Ajax might be the solution, but for now, I removed Clickhandler and (CS1.HRef = "#") and inserted style="cursor:hand" in img tag, That did the trick, Clickhandler was causing the page move.
thanks for looking
