In Compaq Visual Fortran 6.6A I have a monthcalendar control that I've gotten to pop up over other controls while the user selects a date (for the code see a thread I posted earlier on this forum). After the date is selected it disappears. My problem is that I added some static text and a button now that do not get covered up when the monthcalendar control pops up messing up my calendar. Anybody know how to make sure the underlying controls don't shine through? Is there some control setting or trick in MS Visual Studio that I don't know?
