This article assumes that you are familiar with the programming language that is being demonstrated and with the tools that are used to create and to debug procedures.

NOTE: You may receive an error message if you copy the examples directly from this article and paste them into FrontPage. The angle brackets (< and >) may appear as escaped HTML code (< and >). To work around this behavior, paste the script into a blank Notepad document, and then copy it from Notepad before you paste it into FrontPage.
  1. Open a web in FrontPage on a Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) Web server.
  2. Open a new blank page.
  3. Insert the Calendar Control. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. On the Insert menu, click Web Component.
    2. Under Component type, click Advanced Controls.
    3. Under Choose a control, click ActiveX Control.
    4. Click Next.
    5. Select Calendar Control 10.0.
    6. Click Finish.
  4. Switch to HTML view.
  5. Find the section of code that looks like this:
    <param name="Year" value="2000">
    <param name="Month" value="1">
    <param name="Day" value="1">
    Change the code to look like this:
    <param name="Year" value="<%=Year(Date())%>">
    <param name="Month" value="<%=Month(Date())%>">
    <param name="Day" value="<%=Day(Date())%>">
  6. Switch to Normal view.
  7. Save the page with an ASP extension.
When you browse the page by using HTTP, the ASP code automatically creates the default date based on the current date.
