Property Value

Type: System.String

The script used to post the page back to the server when the date being rendered is selected.

Use the SelectUrl property to retrieve the script used to post the page back to the server when the date being rendered is selected in a Calendar control. This property is typically used when you want to customize the content rendered for a date, but still want to retain the postback behavior.

The following code example demonstrates how to customize the content rendered for today's date. The value of the SelectUrl property is inserted into the rendered content so that the Calendar control will post back to the server when the user selects today's date.

<script runat="server">

  void ScheduleCalendar_DayRender(object sender, DayRenderEventArgs e)
  {
    // Customize the caption for today's date.
    if(e.Day.IsToday)
    {
      // Create the content to render for today's date. Use the 
      // SelectUrl property to retrieve the script used to post
      // the page back to the server when the user selects the
      // date.
      string dayContent = "<a href=\"" + e.SelectUrl +
        "\"><img border=\"0\" alt=\"Today\" src=\"today.jpg\"/></a>";

      // Display the custom content in the date cell. 
      e.Cell.Text = dayContent;
    }

  }

</script>
