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

I see a bunch of rows with <href in them when i do a view source on the Calendar control...there has to be a way to hijack the __dopostback in javascript...

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..
