How do you lock/unlock the Date Picker Control?  There is no LOCKED property for the Date Picker Control.

To lock the date use the following

DTPicker1.MaxDate = Now
DTPicker1.MinDate = Now

or instead of Now the date you want it locked to.

To unlock

DTPicker1.MaxDate = "12/31/9999"
DTPicker1.MinDate = "01/01/1601"

That works to lock the control, but I also want to disable the dropdown calendar.

Why don't you set the datepickers enabled property to false.

dtPicker.enabled = false

If I set the enabled to false, the dates are shaded.
