The following code example demonstrates how to initialize the CalendarForeColor property. This example creates a new DateTimePicker, adds it to the Controls collection, and then initializes its CalendarForeColor property to the Aqua constant.

public MyClass()
   DateTimePicker dateTimePicker1 = new DateTimePicker();
   Controls.AddRange(new Control[] {dateTimePicker1}); 
   dateTimePicker1.CalendarForeColor = Color.Aqua;

public MyClass()
    DateTimePicker dateTimePicker1 = new DateTimePicker();
    get_Controls().AddRange(new Control[] { dateTimePicker1 });
} //MyClass
