Default Date Chooser/Picker in MEL

Has anyone ever seen a date chooser written in MEL? Googling doesn't really turn up anything, so I figured I could ask here. I might try to write one and just base it on a javascript example, but I'm not really that good at MEL. Thanks for the help,


dave

the use i had in mind would be to tag polygons with a custom string attribute or two called "start time" and "end time", for use with the maya2googleearth mel script, which I customized to utilze the new time element in the kml 2.1 specification.

it basically allows you to tag points in google earth, with dates, and view the points (and also polygons) in the order of their timestamps.

here is some more information about it, since my explanation doesn't really describe it very well...
