show selected date in calendar

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hi all,

I've got this terrible brain freeze today ;-)

I have an asp:Calendar (not ajax). When I set the selectedDate from codebehind to a date in another month, I'd want the new selected date to show (that is, show the calendar "page" with the new month. How do I do this?

calFromDate.SelectedDate = myDate 'works fine

calFromDate.ShowSelectedDate's Month 'pseudocode


The calendar resides in an updatepanel for speed purposes, but I don't think that has anything to do with anything...


Thanks a lot!

calendar control, show onHover


hi all,
is it possible to have a calendar control on an asp.net page that is diplayed only onHover over some area?
Most of the times, the control won't be needed and I would like to save the space for something else. In case the calendar is needed I want it to slide down from under a link or button (most likely it will be an image there).

thanks a bunch,

Calendar control and date


I have a calendar control , text box and a button . The calendar is invisible in the page load event. When I click on the button,It becomes visible. On selection of a date it becomes the value of the Text Box.
Having said that, my issue is that when this calendar becomes visible, it ruins the arrrangement of the controls on the  page. As I have other controls on the page they  comepletely get displaced. Is there a way to overlap this calendar over the other controls.
I had seen a control that was  some time ago and it was on the client side(probably using javascript or a third party control ) and It wud overlap the other controls and once a value was selected it became invisible.

Submtting Calendar items with variable date information via InfoPath 2007 form



I've seen several posts regarding submitting to a list using and InfoPath form which I am successfully able to do in limited form. (only passing a basic date value) My environment: MOSS 2007 Enterprise w/SP2, InfoPath 2007, SPD 2007.

I'm basically trying to recreate a calendar form with the same data elements (and some additional ones for a specific business requirement) as the standard calendar newform.aspx form. (start time, end time broken down by date, hour, minute and All day event)

I need the form users to be able to select the date and if it is not an All day event...be able to select the hours and minutes just like on the newform.aspx. (date picker control for date and drop downs for hour and minute selection)

On submit I then need to create the list item with the appropriate data passed via a workflow.

My Start Time has a validation rule to not allow dates prior to the current date (and it can't blank) The End Time has a validation rule to not allow dates prior to what is specified as the Start Time value. (Also can't be blank) When I attempt to include conditonal formatting to hide the hour and minute drop downs if 'All Day Event' is selected I get errors stating the fields can't be blank.

I also can't figure out how to pass the entire date/time values or the All Day Event to the list withou

ReportViewer Calendar button Click does not show calendar


I have a reportviewer on a page which is grabbing a report from a report server. the page is basically just a dropdownlist and a reportviewer control. The problem I have is that in the report the user have to provide the dates for teh report. The reportviewer automatically adds the textbox for the date entry and a calendar icon in front of it so the user can select the date. if I look at this page  in FireFox, when you click on the calendar button created by the reportviewer, the calendar control show up momentrily and dispappears. If you look at the same page in IE 7.0 nothing happens other than the page appears to be submitted. Does any body have any ideas on how to go about troubleshooting this bug?



Is it possible to use multiple date fields to have an event show more than once on a Sharepoint 2007

Hello, Is it possible to use multiple sets of start and end times to have events display multiple times in a sharepoint calendar? To clarify: - I have the standard fields of "Start Time" and "End Time" in my calendar list. - Events show on the calendar just fine. - Would like to create additional fields called "Start Time 2" and "End Time 2" within the same record and have the event show multiple times on the calendar. - The recurrence functionality of sharepoint will not meet my needs because the pattern I need to use is not in one of the allowed choices. Thanks in advance, John

Sort WSS 3.0 Calendar by Start Date

Calendar Date Picker Restriction

Is there a way to restrict the user to selecting only the first day of a month from the Date Picker calendar? The database list the yearmonth column as datetime and the entries are 01/01/2010, 02/01/2010, 03/01/2010. . . to represent the month. So I need to be able to provide the calendar in the parameter panel but only let the user select the first day of a month. If I can't do this is there some way of providing an error message when/if they select another day of the month that would instruct them to select the first day of the month? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Calendar: How to show the full title (and other issues)



in SP 2007's calendar, in calendar view, the full title is displayed. It 2010, only a partial of the title is being displayed (which is not suitable if you want to show the menu!!!)

I tried to modify it though SPD 2010, yet in SPD is shows it correctly! Actually, it shows it in 2007-mode appearance - yes, it's weird and crippy, I know...

Any ideas of what to do?

Thank you
