MonthCalendar font issue in Win7

Hi there,

I would like to know if any .NET windows form programmer, is using MonthCalendar control in Windows7, and it's getting any problem.

When I change the font size, don't reflect on calendar control, not even when I start the application.

On Windows XP, the same program has a completely different aspect, because the font size is displayed as it should be.

Does anyone had the same problem?
Did you find a solution?

Yeah, that control is a pain...  it essentially is a fixed-size control
I'd recommend that you use the equivalent COM-based control from Microsoft Office.  You can resize this control to your hearts content.
To add the control to the toolbox.   Go to Tools, Choose Toolbox Items.  From the dialog box, use the COM Components, and check the "Calendar Control 12.0" line.

Hi graye,
thanks for your tip, but I can use Office controls, because my clients will not have M.Office installed

In that case, you'll need to go hunting for a 3rd-party control (free, commercial, or write one yourself)

While it's true that no one other than the asker can truely gauge an answer's "suitability", both the original answer (of using the Office component) and the second answer (link to a 3rd party free control) seemed like suitable answers to me.
