Default .net calendar control


I am trying to find a good control for a calendar. And I do not mean a datepicker, but a calendar similar to the one in outlook or MAC Mail. The best I have found so far is this one:
http://www.telerik.com/products/aspn.../calendar.aspx

It is not quite what I want, but close. Anyone know of any other similar components? Preferably cheap once...

What's wrong with .Net's MonthCalendar control?

Default Well

Like I said, I do not want a datepicker but a scheduler. Are you saying the MonthCalendar control can be extended to this functionality? If so, how?

There's a lot wrong with it. Most visible is that from Vista onwards you can't customize the colors at all. <sarcasm>This is dreadfully important because apparently most enterprise apps can't be bothered to look like every other Windows app, lest the employees who have no choice but to use it or quit choose the latter. I've seen companies lose 100+ employees because the calendar forecolor was black instead of teal.</sarcasm> It's also not very friendly to many common kinds of extensibility. If you want to do fancy things like color certain dates based on different criteria you'll end up in trouble pretty quick.

Unfortunately, calendar controls are quite complicated and thus I'm not aware of many that don't come with a hefty price. Your best bet's going to be to dig around sites like The Code Project and see if some kind soul has made one. Otherwise, look to Telerik, Component One, etc.

Note that WPF/Silverlight have their own MonthCalendar control and due to the magic of templating controls they are *built* for customization. Petzold had fun with one and it's a good place to look to get an idea of what's involved.

Default Thanks!

I'll be looking around some more, but assume I will end up with the one from Telerik. Thanks for your detailed reply!

Sorry, I thought it was look you were after, not tons of code written.
