I am aware of the date field drop down.

Is there a robust Calendar Control Google will not tell me about? Is there a Table Control "wrapper" that can turn it into a calendar?

I am looking for something that I can throw a bunch of dates at and it will highlight the days? Maybe different colors if the date list has a set of data with it or something?

Please tell me there is something like this out there that can help a user see what days are open and which are free?

Thanks in advance

Why not use a calender program? Mozilla has Sunbird, a standalone calender that sites on the desktop and can keep a list of appointments and other events/tasks for you. http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/ .

Thanks for the input.

I am doing a scheduling app, and the user needs to coordinate several variables to make scheduling decisions.

They really need a calendar control that can be fed from a database to make those decisions, and see the effects of the choices.

You can feed a spreadsheet model with database data.

Can I make that Model look and feel like a form control?

Do you have a simple example?
