    jQuery Calendar Plug-in

    Hey all. I'm not very good with JavaScript and I'm slightly scared to be even viewing this forum, much less starting a thread in it ]

    I'm making a site for a local youth group. I'd like to include a nice-looking, smooth, efficient calendar of events that is small enough to go in a sidebar. The effect that I want is to have the calendar display event info upon selecting a date. That is, once I select, say March 26th, then a small dropdown detaches from the calendar and displays a "who, what, when" etc.

    I looked around and saw the jQuery UI plug-in. Is there any way to extend its documentation to achieve what I want?

    Here's an image of what I imagine it'd look like. (Just ignore the blue line at the top - that's a Photoshop guide :P)

    Thanks all, in advance!

    The calendar documentation shows hat it has an event called onSelect, from which you can add additional code to achieve what you want there.

    Right...how hard is the plug-in to work with? I'm really, as I mentioned, terrible w/ anything J-related. Could I figure it out w/ much struggle or is it a daunting task?

    Not hard at all, compared with attempting to do things outside of the plugin.

    I mean, how hard is it to write the added jQuery? Not a big JavaScript guy, as said.

    Not that hard. jQuery provides some good useful tools to let you manipulate the DOM and create new elements
