I have the Calendar1 control on my form and when a textbox gets focus the calendar comes up. I would like it to display todays date, not a hard coded date.
Can this be done, if so how?

Thanks

You can do this by setting the properties for the calendar when the form loads (or on any action you choose). I will use the example when the form loads:

Private Sub Form_Load()
  Calendar1.Day = dayNow
  Calendar1.Month = monthNow
  Calendar1.Year = yearNow
End Sub

You would have to assign the values to dayNow, monthNow and yearNow with the Date function.

Hope this helps.

you can also use the format statement to view in your textbox....

calendar1.Value = now
text1.text = format(calendar1.Value, "mm/dd/yyyy")
