Property Value

Type Default Description


A DefaultBoolean enumeration value that specifies whether or not the calendar employs the DirectX rendering. The DefaultBoolean.Default value is equivalent to DefaultBoolean.False.


To use the DirectX rendering for the Calendar Control, set the UseDirectXPaint property to True and call the WindowsFormsSettings.ForceDirectXPaint method at the application's startup.


Only modify the UseDirectXPaint setting before the control's handle is created. For instance, you can do this at design time, or in the form's constructor.
