MonthCalendar controls


The MonthBackColor property defines the color to be used for the background of a month in the calendar.


This property does not work on the Windows 8.1/10 operating system.

In a painter

Select a color from the MonthBackColor drop-down list on the General page in the Properties view.

In scripts

The MonthBackColor property takes a long (-2 to 16,777,215) that specifies the numerical value of the background color of the month or months in a calendar. The MonthBackColor value is a combination of values for the red, green, and blue components of the color.

If you do not know the long value for the color, choose Design>Custom Colors to determine the red, green, and blue values and then call the RGB function to specify the color in a script.

The following example sets yellow as the background color for months:

mc_1.MonthBackColor = RGB(255, 255, 0)
