DatePicker control in VFP grid doesn't show after picking date and column loses focus.

Effortless asked
Last Modified: 2015-07-24
I am trying to use the Microsoft Date and Time Picker 6.0 ActiveX object in a VFP 9 gridview control. The control works when the cell/column has focus, but I cannot see the value in the cell after the focus moves to the next column. I have tried the SPARSE  property of the column, which hasn't made any difference.

What must I do to see the cell contents after the cell loses focus?

I've attached two images of the cell, one with focus, the other without.
