don't know if the DateChooser component for flash 8 was updated or not but i'm trying to highlight a few days in each month. i can see the 'selectedDate' property does this but it doesn't appear to be able to for more than one date in each month. anyone know of a workaround?

    Accepted Solution

    Think of the selected date as the Active Date, and that will explain why you can only select one. However, if you change another property, you would be able to change all the days you want. Like, change bg color, or text color, for example.

    Load your values into an array and then cycle through the array changing the properties for each item.

    Sounds like you have experience, so just let me know if you need more help.
