One of the things I love about CodeGuru is that you can modify the examples to look just how you want them to, not how someone else wants them to. Recently I needed a control that would enable the user to to select just the month, and year, NOT the day. Shekar Naranan's Year and Month Selector Control was just what I had been looking for. It was a very useful piece of code, however it just seemed rather "flat" to me, so I decided to change the look of it and along the way I added other features to it.

  • The popup window now has a 3D border, the cell border have been removed, and the popup window has been shrunk. Also other minor costmetic alterations have been made.
  • Cursor Keys. When the popup window is displayed the cursur / arrow keys may be used to move the selection.
  • Space / Return Keys. Pressing the space bar or the return key within the popup window now chooses the current selection.
  • "Cool Look" Flat Buttons. The "<<" and ">>" keys have now been made into cool look flat buttons.
  • Keith Rules CMemDC class used to stop flickering.

  For an explantion on how to use this class please refer to Shekar's original article here.

Keeping data close to home, on premises, makes business and IT leaders feel inherently more secure. But the truth is, cloud solutions can offer companies real, tangible security advantages.
