How do I grey out dates in the DTPicker so that I can show non selectable dates in gray.

I am using a DTPicker control to allow the selection of a date.  I want to be able to highlight dates that are not to be selected in, a bit like how it shows the dates in the previous or next month.

I believe that they only way to do that would be to create your own activex control.

keymac,

I do not think you can do that.  However, the DTPicker has MinDate and MaxDate properties; if you set those, it will be impossible for a user to select a date outside that defined range.

You might want to replace the DTPicker.

Consider this one:
