Customised Calendar

Hi experts, I would like to build a simple calendar on a seven rows by five columns table. It is used to fill in scheduled items. It is something like the datetimepicker control. I would like to know how to determine the first date so that I can start to fill the "cell".

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You mean the first moday date in or out the month of a given date? Let's say you start with a known date: myDateTime (could be DateTime.Now)

            DateTime FirstDateOfMonth = myDateTime.AddDays(1-myDateTime.Day);
// FirstDateOfMonth contains the first date in month. If  you want to find out what's the day of week of
// the first of the month just ask it with FirstDateOfMonth.DayOfWeek
// if you want to complete to the first monday regradless of the start day of the month contineu with:
            DateTime FirstSundayToDisplay = FirstDateOfMonth;
            if (FirstDateOfMonth.DayOfWeek != DayOfWeek.Monday)
            {
                FirstSundayToDisplay = FirstDateOfMonth.AddDays(-(long)(FirstDateOfMonth.DayOfWeek));
            }


That's all...
