    Can't get cfcalendar control work client side to selectedDate with JavaScript


      I am not sure why this is happening, I have a function where I am passing a date value, and I've seen it while displaying it and in alerts.  So it comes across such as this 01/22/2013.


      I am trying to get the cfCalendar control I have to select the date but I can't seem to reference the property...


      Simple control defined in the form:


      <cfcalendar name="calDisplay" 


              mask="mmm dd, yyyy"


              monthNames="JAN, FEB, MAR, APR, MAY, JUN, JUL, AUG, SEP, OCT, NOV, DEC"


              width="150" height="150" id="calDisplay"  >



      here's the javascript the parameter is being passed correctly this I have verified:


      function edit_Item(st_Date)



        document.getElementById('calDisplay').value = stDate;  //doesn't work


           document.getElementById('calDisplay').value = Date(stDate); //doesn't work


      document.getElementById('calDisplay').selectedDate= stDate; //doesn't work


      document.getElementById('calDisplay').select(stDate);  //doesn't work




      This has to be a real simple thing to do I am sure it's 2 lines of code, but the calendar will not highlight the date I am passing and select it.  I am not sure what to do.


      If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.  I am trying to do this client side with the control I hope this is possible.
