I need a way to change the ForeColor of a DateTimePicker Control.

The regular dtp.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Red; property does not work, it does not cause an error, but does not change any color.

Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

DateTimePicker.ForeColor is not supported in .net , however you can use DateTimePicker.CalendarForeColor:
dtp.CalendarForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Red;
to change the calendar appearance

if you want to give the datetimepicker this feature , have a look at:

its really a nice thread and is related to your problem

There is another dtpicker control which supports that feature
