I'd like to select not just a day but a period with calendar (multiple days)
Does anyone know a way to do that?

I don't think that you can do this with just one calendar control.

The best thing to do is to have two calendar controls, with the user selecting the from date in the first box and the to date in the second.

Add validation code to ensure that the date range is valid - e.g that the first date is older than the second.

you can use monthview control
in vb ide press CTRL+T select  microsoft windows common controls-2 6.0. you can see monthview control.
set MultiSelect property to true.
set MaxSelCount tono of days you want to allow to select.

from selection

MsgBox MonthView1.SelStart    returns start day selected
MsgBox MonthView1.SelEnd      returns end day selected

Thanks but even with multiselect property you can't select (even with ctrl) for exemple the 1,4,13,19 and 28 of the month.
And if you display 3 months you can't select a period on this 3 months you can just select a period on the same month.

you can create a custom control that loads calendar controls at run time... and get the intervals you need.

Use a listbox to display selected dates and a DatePicker control to add new ones. It's not as pretty as having the calendar highlight all the days, but it's functional.
