Helllo thejwal, and welcome to the Ranch! Here's a link to the Oracle Swing tutorial, which is full of sample code to help your learning:

If and when you have a Swing related question, the place to post it is the Swing / AWT / SWT / JFace forum. And you're sure to get good responses if you follow the guidelines in How To Ask Questions On Java Ranch.

For creating a Calendar GUI, you'll also want to be familiar with java.util.Calendar (and its concrete implementation, GregorianCalendar) and java.util.Date. Any questions about these classes will sit well in this forum.

luck, db
There are no new questions, but there may be new answers.
