How to custom colorize calendar days in the DateTimePicker control
Posted on 2012-09-04
I know that cracking open the DateTimePicker control and customizing it isn't possible. I was, however, wondering if I could wrap it or inherit from it in a way that allowed me to customize my own "colorDay" feature in calendar-mode. I have no problem inheriting from the DateTimePicker control (if that is the best solution); the tricky part for me is actually color-coding the days programmatically. Also this is an existing program that is in production, so I'd rather not swap it out for a totally unrelated control (even if that control behaved as described above).
