Date range selection using MonthCalendar control in vb.net 2005

I am using the MonthCalendar control on a form trying to allow a user to select either 1 day or a range of days up to 1 week (7 days).  I know how to allow this selection and I believe I can handle it fine, but I cannot figure out how to get the control to display the highlighted range.  

For instance, if I allow a 'MaxSelectionCount=7' and then run the app, the control loads and I try to select a range by dragging from monday to friday.  In doing this, half of Monday is highlighted and half of Friday is Highlighted, but everything in between is a white block.  I have not been able to figure out how to make that whole range highlighted as if I just selected one day.

I assume I should be clicking and dragging to select my range...?

I have seen this posted on other forums, but haven't seen a solution yet and didn't see one when I searched here.

Thanks for the help,

rgn

Hi rgn2121,

That is how the selecting of multiple dates works. You'll notice the start and end dates are not just half shaded, but also at the top and bottom, which look a bit like brackets. AFAIK, there is no way to avoid this behavior.

Okay, I can't believe I would have to live with that if used, but I guess I will.

Like my info shows, I am not an expert in .net or VB, but when the control is click for dat selection, I assume it is invalidated every time the user highlights another day.  Can this intercepted along with the Paint event so that it could be highlighted correctly?  If that is possible, I am still not sure since there doesn't seem to be a property for the highlighting of the days...

thoughts?

I suggest staying with the current behavior. Selecting multiple days with a MonthCalendar does not actually select multiple days, but a start and end date.

Okay...last question.  What should I use for a range selection?  The one with the drop down?

The one with the dropdown (DateTimePicker) is used for selecting single dates. To select a range of dates, use the MonthCalendar.
