Hi anurag,

i appreciate the link... gone through that.
All i'm trying to do is  to understand how the custom calendar control interacts with the webpage in which it is registred.

Ex:- when ever a date is selected from the CustomControl ..that selected date has to be displayed in the TextBox of  .aspx page.
like what we have on general webpages like Airline..
