asp.net calendar and database

1. when the page is onload, i want to automatically show the current month and next month calender. Is it possible to do that?

2. Inside of the calendar, I would like to show some data and the data comes from the sql server. How to do that? like it will be select checkout car from cars where date = 01/01/2014. so 01/01/2014 in the calender will show the car name and etc.

3. Inside of the calender, I would like to block some date ranges and  the data domes from sql database server as well. is it possible?

I don't know how to do this specifically on .net.  I do use fullcalendar http://arshaw.com/fullcalendar/

<link rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' href='fullcalendar.css' />
<script type='text/javascript' src='jquery.js'></script>
<script type='text/javascript' src='fullcalendar.js'></script>
$(document).ready(function() {

    // page is now ready, initialize the calendar...

        // put your options and callbacks here

<div id='calendar'></div>

Open in new window

You simply need to create a json feed via your .net http://arshaw.com/fullcalendar/docs/event_data/Event_Source_Object/

There is a good learning curve and if you understand js/jquery it is easier.  It did take me a few times using to wrap my head around all it offers but it has a lot of great built in features.  It is also free.

Kendo http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/web/calendar/index.html has .NET wrappers but the entire shabang will set you back $1000.

good free option. But need some experts telling me how to do it xml.

You can use an xml fee http://arshaw.com/fullcalendar/docs/event_data/events_function/
    events: function(start, end, callback) {
            url: 'myxmlfeed.php',
            dataType: 'xml',
            data: {
                // our hypothetical feed requires UNIX timestamps
                start: Math.round(start.getTime() / 1000),
                end: Math.round(end.getTime() / 1000)
            success: function(doc) {
                var events = [];
                $(doc).find('event').each(function() {
                        title: $(this).attr('title'),
                        start: $(this).attr('start') // will be parsed

Open in new window

If you want to select a day or event such http://arshaw.com/fullcalendar/docs/mouse/
    dayClick: function(date, allDay, jsEvent, view) {

        if (allDay) {
            alert('Clicked on the entire day: ' + date);
            alert('Clicked on the slot: ' + date);

        alert('Coordinates: ' + jsEvent.pageX + ',' + jsEvent.pageY);

        alert('Current view: ' + view.name);

        // change the day's background color just for fun
        $(this).css('background-color', 'red');

This gives the similar look and fee of google calendar except you are using your own data source that you control.
