Is there a place where I can get a free ASP Calendar on the lines of what CD has here? I need it for our robotics team, any replies, I thank you.

If anyone has any type of calendar with a control panel to add events and such I'd be interested too.

by the way...I prefer it without database. I dunno if our host allows databases.

You should really look at ASP.NET because there is an actual Calender Control built right into it....try installing that VS.net your team got and play around with it the Calender Control it isn't perfect right out of the box, but it cuts 90% of the work that a regular ASP Calender would.

I don't think RoboCards got VS.net, and it won't go w/ FrontPage, so hey. If we got FrontPage, then I think it was kinda mean not telling me since I'm one of the heavy-duty programmers (and the only one that really worked on the site this year).

Nope...no Front Page this year.

Not that I'd use it, but still some teams would need it.

You can use VS.NET in the same manner as Front Page tho to make web pages (and much more...)

I have to use FrontPage, but VS.NET components won't work w/ FrontPage. To bad we didn't go with Brinkster or something (I think we have www.affinity.net)

I made a ASP calendar at work, but I don't have a copy of it at home. It uses an Access database and has an administration page where you can add events. It displays a month at a time like the CD calendar. I would be happy to get it for you once I go back to work after the build season. I got this robotics thing i'm taking time off for...

That'd be cool...Thanks.

i can maybe whip something up here at home... (linux + asp = no go without a mod i'm not gonna pay for)

i haven't done asp in about 8 months, so this might be some good practice :)

If you do do it, please make it work w/o a Access Database.

If you don't have a DB on your server, then you really should swich hosts. (there are lots that you can write a letter to and get hosting (with a DB) for free)

While you can make the calender use a flat file, that really isn't that good to do. (Can take a long time with file locks...) Also, whereever you place the calendar flat file, that dir will neet to be have 777 privs.

Ok, thank you everyone for your input. I have decided to just do a basic HTML calendar though. If Jeremy or Curtis want to still do the calendars, that'll be fine (I need something better than what I have made).
