If you decide to use jsp/servlet, for every action of the client like traversing the years or months you need to send a request the server, which is not good.

wht ur referring to is actually done in ASP using ActiveX.Unfortunately we cannot call ActiveX in JSp but wht u can do is look for an Applet Calendar on the net or make it on ur own and call it in JSP page.
hope this helps,

I'm not trying to do this I was curious. See right now I have a drop-down for a month, 1 for day, and 1 for year (for the last 10 yrs). I heard that instead of using this there was a way of calling a combo type calendar, where clicking it would give a calendar and choosing a date would fill the combo box value with that date. Actually I should correct myself in saying that they said this was in ASP and I was wondering if there might happen to be one in JSP as well. I couldnt come across anything in the notes and textbooks I have so I was just curious thats all. I would appreciate any feedback though. Thanks.
