Calendar/Schedule Form in my application


I am creating a form looks like outlook calendar...

It is for taking daily appointments - hour appointments... The display will have 7 columns and each column will have rows for each hour starting from 8pm - 10pm. When a user click on a cell - it displays the details of the appointment... and if they double click on it, they can modify the appointment...

Can anyone suggest me on how I could do this?

Thanks again.

Is there any way I could skip the I have downloaded all their files..

I am able to get the Calendar control Flextras working. I have one question for you.

In this site, - if you click on the Calendar Properties, and click Events - > Item Click, then you close this window and then when you click on the Source Code, it shows that event.
