Is it possible to add a Calendar Date Picker to a Popup CMS window?

I have a basic Calendar Page :

class CalendarPage extends Page {

    static $db = array(
    	'EventDate' => 'Date',
    	'EventTime' => 'Time',
    	'EventTitle' => 'Text',
    	'EventDescription' => 'HTMLText',
    	'EventContact' => 'Text',
    	'ContactEmailAdd' => 'Text'
    static $has_many = array(	
		'EventCalendarDate' => 'CalendarDate',
    function getCMSFields() {
        $fields = parent::getCMSFields();

        $tablefield = new ComplexTableField(
		    	'EventDate' => 'Event Date',
		    	'EventTime' => 'Event Time',
		    	'EventTitle' => 'Title',
		    	'EventDescription' => 'Description',
		    	'EventContact' => 'Contact Name',
		    	'ContactEmailAdd' => 'Contact Email'



class CalendarPage_Controller extends Page_Controller{

And I want to add in a Date Picker as per tutorial 2:

    $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', $dateField = new DateField('Date','Article Date (for example: 20/12/2010)'), 'Content');
    $dateField->setConfig('showcalendar', true);
    $dateField->setConfig('dateformat', 'dd/MM/YYYY');

But I can't figure out or find any topics on this? Is it possible?

Hey Marc-

I used UncleCheese's DatePickerField - you can find it in the DataObjectManager module. Works great in the popup!
