Capturing Date OnClick of ASP Calendar using Javascript

I am using .NET 2003 ASP.NET calendar control in C# and ASP.NET and am trying to capture the date that user clicked on and bring that into a text box in another web form. Want to use java script. Any suggestions please.

What you are using is a server side control and you want to do a javascript on this.
Ideal way would be to store the value in a cookie or session and on click of the calendar redirect to the next page and read the value from the cookie or session

Just passed ID of the textbox as a querystring at onclick with window.open and then on the target page
i did window.opener.document.forms(0)." + hdnctrl.Value + ".value = '"; where hdnctrl is the id of a hiden control that captures the id of previouspage textbox.and then ran self.close(). This script i registered with clientscriptblock under OnSelectionChanged() event of the calendar control..
