    I have a module called Employees that is for a company directory. There's a field in that module that has the BIRTH DATE.  What do I need to do to get the employees to show in a date range? For example, I want to show who's celebrating a birthday in the next three weeks. I'd like to display their pic, name and birthday (e.g. Pic, Bob Smith, June 22nd).

    Hi Bryan,

    You can create a user control (.ascx file) and query in the code behind the employees who have birthday in the next three weeks. You can find samples on how to retrieve employees through filtering and how to work with your dynamic module programatically in the code reference which is automatically generated for your custom module created using the Module Builder. To view the generated code samples please go to Administration -> Module builder and select your moduleThen please click on the Code reference for < module name> link which is on the right-hand side of the page. Here is a screenshot for your convenience.

    After you get the employees filtered by their birth date in the code behind, you can bind them to a ListView or any other control in order to display the desired information about the employees on the frontend.

    After performing the above, you can register the user control using Sitefinity Thunder as described in the following documentation article and add the widget on your page.
