DHTML Calendar — for the impatient

This page demonstrates how to setup a flat calendar. Examples of popup calendars are available in another page.

The code in this page uses a helper function defined in "calendar-setup.js". With it you can setup the calendar in minutes. If you're not that impatient, ;-) complete documenation is available.

The positioning of the DIV that contains the calendar is entirely your job. For instance, the "calendar-container" DIV from this page has the following style: "float: right; margin-left: 1em; margin-bottom: 1em".

Following there is the code that has been used to create this calendar. You can find the full description of the Calendar.setup() function in the calendar documenation.

<div style="float: right; margin-left: 1em; margin-bottom: 1em;"

<script type="text/javascript">
  function dateChanged(calendar) {
    // Beware that this function is called even if the end-user only
    // changed the month/year.  In order to determine if a date was
    // clicked you can use the dateClicked property of the calendar:
    if (calendar.dateClicked) {
      // OK, a date was clicked, redirect to /yyyy/mm/dd/index.php
      var y =;
      var m =;     // integer, 0..11
      var d =;      // integer, 1..31
      // redirect...
      window.location = "/" + y + "/" + m + "/" + d + "/index.php";

      flat         : "calendar-container", // ID of the parent element
      flatCallback : dateChanged           // our callback function
