I have a custom newform (NewForm_Custom.aspx) for my custom list application and one of the listform fields is a date field which has a calendar selection.
 
The question I have is..  Is there a way to only allow users to select Fridays off the calendar?

You could have a javascript function that checks the date value selected and then checks the WeekDay to see if it equals Friday, if not it would clear the select and alert the user but it sounds painful from a user point of view.

Click the date picker
Select a date
Read the pop up alert
Clear the alert
Re-open the date picker
select a date

I know of no way to disable days within the date picker control

one would think there should be a way to limit the dates that can be selected via parameters
