This isn't exactly what you asked for, but it's as close as I can get'cha :)

Can use client functional of CalendarExtender to send info to postback, and do something from there. See Snippet...
***ASPX PAGE****
 
<%@ Register Assembly="AjaxControlToolkit" Namespace="AjaxControlToolkit" TagPrefix="cc1" %>
 
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
 
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title>Cal Extender Event</title>
    <script type="text/javascript">
		
		function selectionChanged(sender,args)
		{
			//just about all calendar properties, etc are avail by using
			//sender._[propertyName]
			//If you wanted to send back a more complex argument then I have used
			//Sys.Serialization.JavaScriptSerializer to package them up
			//then de-serialize on the server side :)
			__doPostBack(sender._id,sender._selectedDate);
			
		}
    </script>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
		<asp:ScriptManager ID="sm" runat="server" />
		
		<asp:TextBox ID="txtCal" runat="server" />
		<asp:Button ID="btnCal" runat="server" Text="Show Calendar" />
 
		<cc1:CalendarExtender 
			ID="CalendarExtender1" 
			runat="server"
			TargetControlID="txtCal" 
			PopupButtonID="btnCal"
			OnClientDateSelectionChanged="selectionChanged" />
 
    </form>
</body>
</html>
 
 
****CODE BEHIND****
 
public partial class Default7 : System.Web.UI.Page
{
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (IsPostBack)
        {
            string eTarget = Request.Params.Get("__EVENTTARGET");
            string eArg = Request.Params.Get("__EVENTARGUMENT");
 
            if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(eTarget) && !string.IsNullOrEmpty(eArg))
            {
                doStuff(eTarget, eArg);
            }
        }
 
    }
 
 
    private void doStuff(string cTarget, string cArg)
    {
        //do something
    }
}
