Selecting non continuous dates in a calendar control

I want to be able to select non continuous dates in a calendar control, is this possible in any of the standard m/s controls ? or does anyone know of a control that can be purchased (or is preferably free) that will allow me to do this.

As an indication of what I am trying to do is to allow a manager of a shop to assign staff to different days of the week in one go, without having to go into each day of the week on the calendar.

There's no standard control that can do this. You can create a user control for one day (the simplest form can have only a number representing the date). Then in your form place three comboboxes or listboxes to allow user select year, month and employee, as well as a panel, add as many user controls as needed for that month (31 for Jan, 28 for Feb not in a leap year , and so on). You can set a public property for user control as Selected. When user click a save button, go through each user control  and check if the flag is set to true, and save them to records.
