Could anyone give me some initial pointers on how to link the basic calendar control in ASP.NET to a sql database. I am using VWD2008 Express, and have dropped the control onto a page. I would like to be able to display information about a particular date below the calendar when that date is clicked. Thanks
The question is a little unclear. Do you want to display information from your database that is linked to the date? Or do you just want to display information about the ACTUAL date picked, like maybe what day of the week it falls on?
If it is #1, you would do this the same way you might if you specified the date in some other way, like a textbox. The calandar has a SelectedDate property that you can feed to a data source control.
