    I have an idea for a project that I am working on and starting to research the possibilities.  My employeer gets tickets for a variety of events and the employees can make requests for the tickets.  They currently have multiple classic asp sites that manage the approval of the requests for these tickets.  They would like to upgrade these sites to one site that is easy to use and manage.

    I was thinking about creating a page that has two calendars on it.  The calendar on the left would be the Events Calendar.  The calendar on the right would be the employees Outlook Calendar.  They would see both calendars side by side.  They could drag an event from the events calendar to their calendar.  The process of dragging or clicking on the event would then update their Outlook Calendar with a request for these tickets.  Two weeks before the event an admin would approve the event for some employees and it would auto deny the requests from the others.

    Does anyone have any suggestions or samples?  I would like to start building a protype next week.  It would be cool to make this a Silverlight App using the Telerik Calendar Controls.

    Thanks,

    Randy

    Hello Randy,

    Presently, the Calendar control for asp.net ajax does not offer such a functionality. Another option in this case would be to provide the details for the items, associated with a given date, in two grids. The grid control does expose a drag and drop behavior, as demonstrated in the following article:

    http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/grid/examples/programming/draganddrop/defaultcs.aspx

    I hope this suggestion helps.

    Sincerely yours,
