This depends on the OLE control you are using on your form. Many Date entry controls exist and you have to look what properties and events they do have in design mode and test it if no documentation exists.

E.g. MS DateTime Picker 6.0 OLE control has the selected date and time in _Value property and to copy it into a text box on the same form can be done e.g. in Change event:

THIS.Parent.Text1.Value = THIS._Value
THIS.Parent.Refresh

An answer to your second question is also not possible without calendar control name.

BTW, what VFP sample are you talking about?

And the last note: Do you know VFP Calendar Window?

Try  ACTIVATE WINDOW Calendar

the selected date is stored in _diarydate variable.

Are you sure it is possible to change the calendar image? Do you have some link saying that?

You may change the output value format as described e.g. here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.datetimepicker.customformat.aspx
