VB.Net 2005 - Calendar control's "today" indicator

Posted on 2007-12-05
Last Modified: 2013-11-07
Something I've done recently has changed the today marker from a circle to a square...
I can't find a property to change this...any ideas where I might look?

Hmmm, did you apply Service Pack 1?  The default setting is for a square, and I don't remember when that changed.

Hmm - "I" didn't, and I can't determine that it was pushed via any package, but I'm quite certain it was a circle up until yesterday or the day before...
I did add a custom class for a combo box, but I don't think that would affect it.

My C# app does, but with VB.NET, that would be an project setting.

Ahh...that would be it.
I've been working in another question on changing my startup to use the actual 'splash' startup, and had commented out this line:

Application.VisualStyleState = VisualStyles.VisualStyleState.ClientAndNonClientAreasEnabled

Probably it...I'll drop it back in.

Adding that line back didn't do it - I had to deselect XP styles under project properties.
Thanx gang.
