I assume that you have set the AutoPostBack property to True on the radio button controls.

Hi,
Yes I Have done that, but to no avail.
The code I am using is like this. (Assume I want to add radio buttons to every 5th of any month)

Thanks


        If e.Day.Date.Day = 5 Then

            Dim R As New RadioButton

            With R

                .Text = "Radion Button"

                .GroupName = "RadioButtons"

                .EnableViewState = True

                .AutoPostBack = True

            End With

            e.Cell.Controls.Add(R)

        End If

Open in new window

Hi Jason

I have tried out what you are trying to do and can see what the problem is.

The radio buttons seem to work in that you can select one, but the postback doesn't fire. The other major issue is that as you are dynamically creating the radio button controls in the render event, each time you change month or select a day, the postback will re-render the calendar and clear all the radio buttons - i.e their viewstate is lost because they are recreated on each day rendering.

I would suggest that what you need is some form of button to get the user to click to confirm their choice and then pick up the value in each radio button in the page load event that happens on postback.
If you do this you would need to give the radio buttons an ID so that you can read the value of them using FindControl. This is complex though as the radiobuttons are members of the calendar.cells.controls collection and I cannot find a way to enumerate the cells and then check each one for a radiobutton!!

 Sorry, this doesn't seem very helpful, but I think you may need a different approach - you should be able to use Javascript to check the values in the visible radiobuttons and then save them (in a hidden field) and do a postback to finish any server side processing.
