Dynamic Calendar Using JQuery


In this blog, we will see how to use jQuery to create the calendar dynamically.

For every application, there is a basic need to select a date from the calendar control. In this application, we will see how to use the calendar control of jQuery for HTML textbox, when the focus is on the textbox.

Step 1

First, write your design part for calendar. See the code given below to create your calendar.

  1. <asp:TextBox ID="txtDate" runat="server"></asp:TextBox> <br /> <br />  
  2. <div id="Calendar" class="cal" style="display:none">  
  3.     <div id="Calender_Header" class="calheader">  
  4.         <asp:ImageButton ID="prvbtn" Width="32" Height="32" class="prv" ImageUrl="~/previousbutton.png" runat="server" />  
  5.         <asp:LinkButton ID="Calendar_Month_Year" ForeColor="White" class="link" Font-Underline="false" runat="server"></asp:LinkButton>  
  6.         <asp:ImageButton ID="nextbtn" class="next" Width="32" Height="32" ImageUrl="~/nextbtn.png" runat="server" /> </div>  
  7.     <div id="Calendar-Dates" class="calbody"></div>
