You may use Microsoft Date and Time Picker OLE control. Many more other calendar controls exist.

If you need just FoxPro Calendar window to appear then you may simply display it on some Hot key:

ON KEY LABEL F9 Activate Window Calendar

and save _diaryDate variable into the Textbox.Value when you close the Calendar window.

Like pcelba said, what you describe is very likely the Date and Time Picker OLE Control. If you want to avoid ActiveX (and their deployment and registration at clients), then take a look at Craig S. Boyd's calendar done with a vfp grid: http://www.sweetpotatosoftware.com/SPSBlog/PermaLink,guid,878c1b11-1770-405c-92ea-cdbe2c838dfa.aspx

Bye, Olaf.
