In this Tutorial we are using AJAX Control Toolkit to link CalendarExtender to a Textbox to pick a date and that date will captured by that Textbox. This Calender can be easily attached to any ASP.NET Textbox to select a particular date. 

It provides client-side date-picking functionality with customizable date format and UI in a popup control. You can interact with the calendar by clicking on a day to set the date, or the "Today" link to set the current date.
