I'm designing a web calendar application. The starting view shows a small-ish calendar with a number of events listed on each day. The calendar cell for today, for example, contains the words "March 10" and "3 Events". When the user clicks on the day, I want some kind of dynamic menu or box to appear with details about those 3 events. I want this "detail view" to be on the same page, overlayed on top of the existing web page elements.
The problem is I'm having a total mental block while trying to decide what that "detail view" menu or box should look like. I'm wondering, does anyone know of any calendars or similar web apps that use this functionality that I could look at to get inspired? I'd appreciate any help. My searches haven't turned up anything.
