Use javascript to set watermark text for text box
 
function watermark(inputId,text)
    {
        var inputBox = document.getElementById(inputId);
        if (inputBox.value.length > 0)
        {
            if (inputBox.value == text)
            inputBox.value = '';
        }
        else
            inputBox.value = text;
    }

Open in new window


<input type="text" name="startdate" class="tcal" id="startdate" readonly="readonly"
                                onfocus="watermark('startdate','select startdate');" onblur="watermark('startdate','select startdate');" />

so that text disappears when mouse hovered

yo can use calendar code attached

not sure if you can write something because it isn't a valid value. one thing for sure, you can leave it empty. check http://emoreau.com/Entries/Articles/2005/01/The-DateTimePicker-control.aspx
