Calendar control and PostBack issue

I have a web form with a button (button1) and a div with dropdownlis, a bunch of texbox controls on it, a button(button2) and a calendar control.

The div and its elements are not visible until user clicks on button1 - the only control visible on the form. I use JQuery to make the div and its elements visible.

her is my JQuery code:

$(document).ready( function(){
	 $('#div1').css('display', 'none');
                 $('#button1').click(function(e){
	         e.preventDefault();
	         $('#div1').css('display', 'block'); 
	 });
 });

Open in new window


So when I click on button1, my div1 becomes visible, I select and item from a dropdown, then I click on a calendar control to select a value and my div becomes invisible. it reatins all the selections and re-appears if I click on button1 once again, but it is not satisfactory. I tried preventing a postback of calendar control but then it does not retain a selection in the calendar control.

How do i get around this issue?
