Hello, currently I using a dropdown box to hold dates to use the query information. I have a start date and a end date. I want to convert this to a calendar function but I'm getting the following errors:

System.web.ui.webcontrols.calendar does not contain a definition for "DataSource"
System.web.ui.webcontrols.calendar does not contain a definition for "DataValueField"
System.web.ui.webcontrols.calendar does not contain a definition for "DataTextField"

I'm still learning some of this .net stuff and I'm taking over for someone so I need a little help to fix this issue for production. Below is the code of the aspx.cs file. What do I need to change so that I can use the dates from database to collorate with the calendar. The format of the dates is 8/23/2010. Thanks!!

            String sessBAID = Session["BAID"].ToString();

            //DataSet ds = dbRMS.ExecuteDataSet(dbRMS.GetSqlStringCommand(ddlSQL));

            ddlStartDate.DataSource = ds;
            ddlStartDate.DataValueField = "Date";
            ddlStartDate.DataTextField = "DisplayDate";
            ddlStartDate.DataBind();
            ddlEndDate.DataSource = ds;
            ddlEndDate.DataValueField = "Date";
            ddlEndDate.DataTextField = "DisplayDate";
            ddlEndDate.DataBind();
        }
        else
        {
            //We have a post back, read the data!
        }
    }
}

The following lines is binding the values from the database to these ids:

ddlStartDate.DataSource = ds;
ddlStartDate.DataValueField = "Date";
ddlStartDate.DataTextField = "DisplayDate";
ddlStartDate.DataBind();
ddlEndDate.DataSource = ds;
ddlEndDate.DataValueField = "Date";
ddlEndDate.DataTextField = "DisplayDate";
ddlEndDate.DataBind();

Now from the error htat I am gettting:

System.web.ui.webcontrols.calendar does not contain a definition for "DataSource"
System.web.ui.webcontrols.calendar does not contain a definition for "DataValueField"
System.web.ui.webcontrols.calendar does not contain a definition for "DataTextField"

Are not compatiable with the calander function. Is that correct?

I was looking at the following page:

http://demo.mediachase.com/calendar.net/DataBinding/DataBinding.aspx

it states that the calendar supports the Datasource defintion but I'm still getting errors
