ActiveX Control: DTPicker

1. Is it possible to set Min and Max dates thru code? If Yes, how?

2. I'd like to lock the typing capability and allow user to select the date only thru the drop-down calender. Tried locking the control but didnt help

thanks in advance

u can set the min and max date by selecting the datepicker,
right-click on it and select datepicker-object --> properties (not the default properties window for all controls)

oops, overlooked the second part...

here is an example of disabling user typing into datepicker:
--> name of my control is dteP

Private Sub dteP_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)

    KeyAscii = 0

End Sub

cheers

thanks for the Ascii-function. As for the min, max dates thru properties, I already know that. My question is, is it possible to change them thru code? Each user depending on his/her level would have a different set of dates.

hi,

quite simple actually,



dteP.MinDate = #1/1/02#
dteP.MaxDate = #1/1/03#

DTPicker neither has Key_Press-Event nor one can access its properties. Please try it out.

If you have a workable example, then email me.

sure it has...

the only thing is, this is an ActiveX-control,
so Access will not show u all its properties (it has an OCX-property-page of itself), but the properties are there...

In your module (or VB-editor in Acc2k) in the left upper combobox, select the name of the DatePicker,
then in the right combobox u will have all its properties.
Key_Press is one of them.

MIN- and MAXDate are methods, so they will not show,
but if u type them they will work.

anyway, an example is on its way

cheers

strange,

i commented here this morning,
my post is gone...

anyway,

what i said:
since this is an ActiveX control, u wont see all the properties in the enumeration-box, since it has a 'ocx-property-page.

but the methods and properties are there.

for example:
in the code-window (Visual basic editor in A2k), in the left upper corner, u will find your datepicker (name) in the combobox, if u select it,
then u will find the properties in the combobox in the right upper corner.
