Anyone know of a good control which will display a drop-down month calendar used to allow interactive date selection? CDateTimeCtrl isn't cutting it for me as it ignores (in the newer common controls, according to MS and from my experimenting) any font specification, opting to instead use the current Windows visual theme info.

I need to be able to have it use a custom font, specifically a larger than normal font. Any suggestions?

The solution can be found here on Stack Overflow. The built-in control will work, however, some code is required to both remove the visual theme from the drop-down control (so it respects the font setting) and then resize the control to match the custom font choice. The code to do this is provided if you follow the link. Using that, I do not need the custom control requested here as I can use the built-in one.
