Here's the ASPX code
<asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server"
        style="top: 180px; left: 766px; position: absolute; height: 22px; width: 128px"></asp:TextBox>
    <cc1:CalendarExtender ID="TextBox1_CalendarExtender" runat="server"
        Enabled="True" PopupPosition="Right" TargetControlID="TextBox1">
    </cc1:CalendarExtender>

i don't know from where you get PopupPosition="Right" the only available values for  PopupPosition are :
BottomLeft
BottomRight
TopLeft
TopRight

choose one of those options and see what is the result.

I'm using Visual Web developer 2008, which has got 6 values namely,
BottomLeft
BottomRight
TopLeft
TopRight
Left
Right

Basically i just want to distance the calendar control form the text box.

add only textbox and the calendarExtender without any style in new page; if the problem still exist there must be an issue in the dll itself.

The problem u are facing is because u are using gridLayout.
You must  use Flow Layout of page.

Place the TextBox and calendar extender in a HTML table.

Thanks ajay. Worked like a charm. I had really gone crazy to make this work. Ajay one last thing. When the calendar drops down, it displays under the next control but not over it. I hope I'm not confusing. Its like the label below appears on the calendar.is there a way not to make the calendar transparent so that it doesn't show other controls in it. Thanks in advance.

I found it . I just set the z-index and it seems to render properly.

.ajax__calendar_container { z-index : 100; }
