    Does anyone know how to add a calender to a drop down menu in html? I'd liek to show a calendar for current month that users can select the date on or browse forwards ad abck to any date so it shows in a drop down menu in form. Sort of like in a registration form where date registered calls a calender and you just select that date.
    i can add lists etc but i just cant find anything that allows me to select dates.

    Here's a link to free javascript file which will do it. Far easier to do like this than in pure HTML.

    This is Hilarious ! :D

    Its JavaScript ! not Java ! Notice the difference !

    To do a pop up you need floating divs etc, the content and visibility of these get altered dynamically by the javacript to show the correct calendar details and allow date picking etc.

    Otherwise you are stuck with plain HTML controls and a very boring site with absolutely no JavaScript at all.

    Maybe you should code it for them then ? :D
