HTML Controls vs Web Form Controls

I have a page with both controls (HTML and Web Form Controls). I am trying to use an html Calendar control and then get the date selected by the user and put into a Web form input field control. When I try to run this the HTML control cannot talk to the Web form control.
Any ideas?

Hi here is the Code.  Also I added a web form text input control and an html text control and created a function to copy the value from the web form control to the html control using java script.  Did not work.

Thanks for your help.

Mobile Web Controls vs. Web Controls
I am using VS2003 and I have realized that Mobile Web Controls are very basic and simple. So I saw in a post the way to use Web Controls inside Mobile Web Forms. Since then, I often use Web Controls instead of Mobile Web Controls. I put the Web Control inside a Mobile DeviceSpecific and put this DeviceSpecific inside a Mobile Panel. Why the Mobile Controls are so simple?  Does it happen the same in VS2005 or 2008? And, is it right to use only Web Controls inside Mobile Web Forms?

Web control in web control
Hi,There are two simple web user controls A and B, where B contains A. They just display the bunch of text boxes, so I do not need them even in tool pane. They sit in the same project next to web form.I noticed that web user control put on ASPX page does not appear in code behind, but if I create it with protected keyword and name being exactly the same as id it works fine. I can access such a web control from code behind and see the value assigned in IE. The problem is that the same routine does work for my A web control in B. When I assign the value IE, I keep getting null reference. ...

Html controls vs. Web controls
Can someone give me some examples if when it is best to use html controls over web controls and vice versa? Thanks, tdnxxx444 Web controls show up as <asp:class runat=server> (the "asp" may be replaced by other prefixes). They may have a corresponding HTML tag that they represent, but generally they are there to build all the HTML necessary for an idea. For example, something simple like the CheckBox web control still outputs several tags when you View Source: <span><input type=checkbox><label for>. Something like the Calendar control generates an en...

Desktop Web Controls vs. Mobile Web Controls
Hi, after having a look at the posts in this forum about mobile issues, i still have some doubts.
