I'm using the Date/Time Picker control and I would like to eliminate the strange spacing that seems to occur in the display of the date. I'm using the short date format as follows.
The date should display like this in the DTPicker:
But instead display's like this:
1 /7 /01
This forces the control to be larger than it should be, taking up extra space and it looks just plain goofy compared to the rest of the neatly formatted info in the window.
I've noticed that Microsoft seems to have avoided this problem in the Date section of the Find tool...As in Start -> Find -> File or Folders...It displays the short date just fine and without the goofy spacing.
Any ideas on how to get rid of the extra spaces would be appreciated. Please note that I've tried using custom format with a M/d/yy variation without success.
