Passing Date from Calendar Pop-Up to Parent Window





This section will help us building a simple DatePicker control using Calendar control and Javascript. Create two aspx pages, ParentPage.aspx and Calendar.aspx. Calendar.aspx will contain a Calendar control and it should be opened as a popup window. When the user selects a date in the Calendar popup it will populate the date selected into a textbox in the ParentPage.aspx page.


ParentPage.aspx


<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="ParentPage.aspx.cs" Inherits="ParentPage" %>

<script type="text/javascript">
function PopupPicker(ctl)
{
var PopupWindow=null;
PopupWindow=window.open('Calender.aspx?ctl='+ctl,'','width=250,height=250');
PopupWindow.focus();
}
</script>

</head>
<body>
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<div>
<asp:TextBox ID="txtDate" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
<input id="Button2" type="button" value="Click" onclick="PopupPicker('txtDate');" />
</div>
</form>
</body>
</html>



<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Calender.aspx.cs" Inherits="Calender" %>

<script type="text/javascript">
function SetDate(dateValue,ctl)

{

thisForm = window.opener.document.forms[0].elements[ctl].value= dateValue;
self.close();
}
</script>

</head>
<body>
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<div>
<asp:Calendar ID="Cal1" runat="Server" OnDayRender="Cal1_DayRender"></asp:Calendar>
</div>
</form>

</html>

using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;

public partial class Calender : System.Web.UI.Page
{
string ctrl;
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
ctrl = Request.QueryString["ctl"].ToString();
}

protected void Cal1_DayRender(object sender, DayRenderEventArgs e)
{

HyperLink hpl = new HyperLink();
hpl.Text = ((LiteralControl)e.Cell.Controls[0]).Text;
hpl.NavigateUrl = "javascript:SetDate('" + e.Day.Date.ToShortDateString() + "','" + ctrl + "');";
e.Cell.Controls.Clear();
e.Cell.Controls.Add(hpl);

}
}
By default, the days in calendar control is rendered as links and generate a postback when it is clicked. Instead of postback, we will call our custom SetDate() JavaScript function by changing the cell of the Calendar control to Hyperlink control and attaching the SetDate() JavaScript function to the hyperlink in clnDatePicker_DayRender event.
