Date Time Picker Control - Questions?

Although the date time picker control appears to use the month calendar control for the drop down calendar, how can I set any of associated with the month calendar eg "No Today"

Also when using the style DTS_APPCANPARSE there appears to be problems associated with an internal "lost focus event". Ie when the control created with this style is located and you enter information and then click on any other control in the dialog the control appears to eat the click message. Is this a bug in the implemntation of DTS_APPCANPARSE?

(This behaviour is demonstrated in the common control sample available on MSDN that was wrote by Aaron Skonnard in MSJ titled "Internet Client SDK Part iii, Common Controls")

You need to handle the DTN_DROPDOWN frmo your date/time control. That will tell you that the user has asked for the drop down, and the month/calendar control has been created, but has not yet been shown to the user.

In response to that notification, you should call GetMonthCalCtrl(). That'll gain you a pointer to the month calendar control object. You can modify its style using ModifyStyle() or ModifyStyleEx().

I don't see the Skonnard article you reference in my copy of MSDN. What do you mean by "eat the click message"? Are you saying that focus isn't passed to the control upon which you click?

BTW: I think you should ask two separate questions instead of folding two separate questions in one.
