Event Calendar in VB .NET

I am trying to create a Visual Basic Caledar view where I can access and show information on a month view. i.e: a tardy for a student on one day, will be shown as a start, break, lunch tardy and the amount. I was trying to do this in VB but, I keep running in to dead ends with it. I did see some ASP calendars, but, I am fairly new at coding in VB .NET and needed some help. I am hoping some one can guide me in this project. The idea is to get it similar to the outlook calendar application.

I've done a fair amount of research regarding calendar controls.

I've came across many controls that emulate Outlook views.

Try the UltraWinSchedule at www.infragistics.com. This is one that seemed very robust. There is a fully functional demo available for download.

As for my solution, I decided to create my own control =)

   Thanks for the link, I checked it out but, it seems that it is not something I need. It is similar as far as the calendar view goes but, I think I will have to make the control and view myself. Can you tell me how you went about creating the control. I am fairly new at VB .NET so any help you can provide will be of great assistance... Else I will have to come up with some other alternative...
I dont want to go web-based, therefore I am trying to get something that I can create in my VB stand alone application....

I ended up using an ASP Calendar in place of the VB calendar. It seems to have solved the problem.
