TDateTimePicker error - ShowCheckBox mode

I have a TDateTimePicker set to "Time" mode.

I have noticed when scrolling through the numbers, sometimes I will get an error message:

Project ... raised exception class EDateTimeError with message 'You must be in ShowCheckbox mode to set this date'.

Now, I noticed that in the Properites for the TDateTimePicker there IS a property called "ShowCheckbox" and it WAS set to false.

Now, I can try setting this to true and see if the error goes away, but what I don't understand is what this error has to do with me scrolling throught e hours or minutes in a TDateTimePicker.

Thanks,

Tom

Looks like the string came from

Delphi4\Source\Vcl\Comstrs.pas :

  sNeedAllowNone = 'You must be in ShowCheckbox mode to set to this date';

Probably you set the property "Time" of your TDateTimePicker to not valid value.
If you set the Time value on this mode:

DateTimePicker1.Time := MyTime;

you must control MyTime, probably is not valid Time format.
Create MyTime as:

var
  MyTime : TDateTime

and you must use the instruction EncodeTime (or StrToTime) to set your time:

begin
  MyTime := EncodeTime(10,07,01,5);  

--- or ----

  MyTime := EncodeTime(myHour,MyMin,MySec,myMSec);

--- or ---
 
  MyTime := StrToTime('11.33.44');

end;

!!!remember: the hours are calculated on 24 hours for day


If you want the current time write: "MyTime := Time" or "MyTime := Now";
