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.

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.
