Datetimepicker button: How do I fire it manually?

The button in the datetimepicker class that opens the calendar is too small
for my touchscreen users. How can I make a regular button that opens the
datetimepicker calendar ?

I don't want to just make the font in the datetimepicker huge, that only
makes the button very tall and skinny.

Thank you for any ideas!

Hi,

In case you want to call the calender control manually on click of a button
you can do it in the following ways...

1. Position the calendar control in a div and show that div on click.
2. Open the calendar control on a new window and on the new window close
save the data on a window level variable.

Think the second option should be fair enough. Also you can use a modal
dialog box (window.showModalDialog) or check MSDN for more info on the
showModalDialog method.

HTH...

Need any help, do post a msg back..

Happy Coding

Sorry, I should mention I am using VB.NET . The datetimepicker class is
different than the calendar class, but it has a calendar that drops down when
you click the button on it. I want to be able to make a button that makes
the calendar drop down from this control because the button in the control is
too small.
