Help with MSCAL 7 calendar control


I am making use of the Active X calendar control (mscal.Calendar .7) in
several places in my main form, with the following code

Below is an example of the code I'm using for the controls.

Private Sub DateSold_MouseD own(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As
Single, Y As Single)
SoldCal.Visible = True
SoldCal.SetFocu s
If Not IsNull(DateSold ) Then
SoldCal.Value = DateSold.Value
SoldCal.Value = Date
End If
End Sub

My question is this:

How do I get out of the calendar control if it is inadvertently clicked on?
Currently, if the control is clicked on, the calendar is displayed, and
there is absolutely no way of making it dissappear without choosing a date.
Even if I focus on another control in the form, the calendar control still
remains visible.

Sometimes the field will be empty (i.e. in the code above, the DateSold
field will only contain a date if the item has actually been sold

What I would like to have:

A) is to be able to hit the escape key, or click outside the control, on
the background, or on another control, and have the calendar control
dissappear and leave the original (sometimes blank) value in the control.

B) Pop a message box up asking me "Change Date?" Y N. If No is clicked, the
calendar control will close leaving the original value

My Access 97 database is on a public network so it can be accessed by a dozen users. On my computer the Active X calendar shows the GridFont as 8 pt.

I can go into a user's computer and change the font setting on the calendar property to 8 and then it works. Can I set that...

Hey all, How do I set the default date of my MSCAL.Calendar.7 calendar to today's date? I have it on one of my forms so that an employee can click on a given date and bring up the records form there. I just want the data to automatically be today's date, instead of having to click the desired date (which in almost all cases will be the current day's date). Thanks in advance, James

Hey guys, I'm using MSCAL.Calendar.7 to allow the user to select a date and time in an Access application which is used across a network. The application uses Access 2003 as the frontend with SQLServer 2000 as the backend. On most machines (including the one I am developing on) the months and days are correctly displayed in English. However, on some machines the are displaying in German. I thought it may be caused by some machines having...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
