Decent calendar control???

Does anyone know of a decent calendar control?  Preferably something cheap...

I am used to using the MS Calendar control, but I hate not having a single EXE file to distribute.  The standard Delphi one looks terrible and I'd like something that looks professional.  BTW - my idea of that is that the MS one looks pretty good.

Hoping someone can help.

Thanks

Actually, the Delphi calendar control is just a wrapper around the Windows calendar control. If you set the font and colors to your specifications then it's a pretty nice control, actually. So what kind of functionality are you looking for that's not in the default calendar control?

I'm after the 3d, outlined, drop shadow look.  In my app, it just adds a little body to the control.  If you can talk me through that it would be great!

Then what about the TCalendar class in the Samples page? You can adjust this component too if you like since it's just one of the sample components. The TMonthCalendar however does not offer any real 3d functionality since it's basically a Delphi wrapper around a Windows control. Borland might have left some functionality away, though. And maybe the link Ivanov_G provided brings you to a calendar that you like more, although many people are just happy with how Delphi itself presents it. At least I myself never worried about how it looked. It works just well and that's more than enough for me.
