    .Option(exDateTodayCaption) = "Azi"
    .Option(exDateMonths) = "Ianuarie Februarie Martie Aprilie Mai Iunie Iulie August Septembrie Octombrie Decembrie"
    .Option(exDateWeekDays) = "D L M M J V S"
    .Option(exDateFirstWeekDay) = 1
    .Add "Date", Date, EditDate
End With

The following VB sample changes the default filter for EditFile editors :

With PropertiesList1
    .Option(exEditFileFilter) = "INI Files|*.ini;*.init|All (*.*)|*.*"
    .Option(exEditFileTitle) = "Select an INI file"
    .Add "INI", "c:\temp\test.ini", EditFile, "Selects a file", "Custom"
End With
