Adding Awesome Calender in Dotnetnuke or DNN Module

Dear Readers
Today i found the very easy solution for display calender in DNN module by two easy steps

DotNetNuke provides with inbuilt jquery.js and jquery-ui.js so you don't have to bother to link them separately In regular html / asp.net application you would have to add following lines in
<head> tag
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.8.2.js"></script>  
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/ui/1.9.0/jquery-ui.js"></script>  
<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://code.jquery.com/ui/1.9.0/themes/base/jquery-ui.css" />

Note: If you did not see the calender then copy and past the above link 

If you are developing a custom DNN module add this to your user control view.ascx file.
I have txtStartDate as a text field on the form where I wanted my calander to be rendered on click.
To achieve this I added this code at the top of my ascx page after the standard includes.

<script type="text/javascript" >
$(function () {
    $("#<%= txtStartDate.ClientID %>").datepicker();
});
</script>


The calender takes the size based on your text size if it is appearing bigger that your expectation
set it style like this

<style>
div.ui-datepicker{
font-size:10px;
}
</style>


That's it and when you click on the text box the calender will automatically display Wawoo!

Enjoy

Calling LoadLibraryEx on ISAPI filter “C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\aspnet_filter.dll” failed

Dear Readers
if you get the error

Calling LoadLibraryEx on ISAPI filter “C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\aspnet_filter.dll” failed


Here is the solution 
Get a command prompt in administrator mode and go to C:\Windows\Microsoft .NET\FrameWork64\v4.xxx
and run aspnet_regiis -r. This will re-register the right libraries. It has happened twice already to me.
For other frameworks (32 bit or other versions of .net make sure you go to the correct folder (i.e. Framework/v2.xxx, etc.)

xxxx is the the number which is present with the folder name so i suggest you guys to check the folder name in your directory

If "run aspnet_regiis -r" is not working and if you get the error run is not recognized command then just type " aspnet_regiis -r" it will run fine

Reason of problem
Your asp.net frame work has been change may be you have install the lower version on the higher version or may be because of any reason you have register another version in your IIS, in my cas…
