Hi
I am new to ajax and only knows the basics of Ajax.In my application, 1 date picker button is there i.e To date . (From date is fixed one for example 12/04/2004).My requirement is when user clicks on the To date picker (for example 01/01/2009), i have to show all the records between the to and from date by using AJAX.Please suggest me on this or if possible send me the code link where data represantation be there on clicking of date picker.

1) Use Javascript to invoke an asynchronous request to the server which is running some server side code (PHP? Java Servlet? etc).
2) Let the server side code get the results from the database and return it as an XML or JSON response.
3) Use Javascript to process the results into the HTML DOM tree.

That's roughly the principe of Ajax.

Have you done a basic tutorial on Ajax to make a call to the server and get content? If not do something with this: http://developer.apple.com/internet/webcontent/xmlhttpreq.html

After you figured out how to make an Ajax call, figure out how your calendar works if you have one. Does it fire some sort of notification when a date is picked? Without code, we can not really help here.
