When you mean ajax, do you mean that you want it so that when you hover over a day in the mini calendar you see a popup that describes what's going on that day in more detail? Like this page, http://calendar.byu.edu/calendar/2010-08, when you hover over dates in the full calendar?

Thanks about the beauty tips, I didn't actually know how that site was doing that.

Here's a long thread about your question, http://drupal.org/node/339279. I'll see if I can get to the bottom of it.  I won't be able to look into this for a few hours.

I've patched the calendar module, try using this instead. I'm going to try it myself.

You can find the patched version here, http://thomashansen.me/calendar.zip. Make sure to turn on AJAX for the view block display.

Just tested the patched calendar version on my site and it works great! Again remember to set AJAX to yes.

I applied the patch attached in comment 93 on this thread, http://drupal.org/node/339279#comment-3137726.  If you open the patch file in a text editor you can see the changes (cryptically, I might add).

You can patch it yourself if you'd like, http://drupal.org/patch/apply.

You can view it in action here, http://thomashansen.me/panel/web-programs, if you scroll down to the bottom left.

are you sure it's not going to cause any problems?

i feel a little uncomfortable to try it on the production site cuz the deadline is real close,

anyways, i think i'm going to try it. If it doesnt work, I dont have to reconfigure everything right?
i'll just replace the calendar folder on the site with yours, and it's going to work?

Make a backup of your site's database using Backup and Migrate, http://drupal.org/project/backup_migrate.

As a general rule of thumb Drupal modules never change files on the server except those in sites/default/files, so restoring an old database should bring you back exactly to where you were before.

Yeah, just replace the folder, flush caches, etc.
