ASP.NET:  Calendar.SelectedDate

I have a function that is called from the end of Page_Load() that attempts to initialize the currently-selected date of several Calendar controls.

However, no matter how I try to initialize these Calendars, every time they come up with the current month (March 2004).

What's wrong with what I'm doing here?

Thanks!

         '// This code is always executed, but the calendar always displays with the current month.
         If (Not (dtCreationDate = Nothing)) Then
            '// At this point, dtCreationDate = #6/21/2001#
            sDateFormat = "yyyy/MM/dd"
            Me.calendarCreationDate.SelectedDate = dtCreationDate.ToString(sDateFormat)
         End If

I've tried it just using the DateTime variable, too:

   Me.calendarCreationDate.SelectedDate = dtCreationDate

to no avail.

What do I have to do here to initialize this stupid control?

Thanks!

Bingo.

What's SelectedDate for, then?

SelectedDate is the one for getting/setting the date selected. But somebody at MS decided that for some reason you would not want the SelectedDate to be displayed as the default month; so the control displays current month by default, and forces you to override it by setting the VisibleDate property. Don't we love Microsoft? :-)
