Try set the DTPicker's Value Property.

Example:

Private Sub cmdRefresh_Click()
    DTPicker1.Value = Date
End Sub

Just in case you want to display the date in the Format you want, you can always do this:

1. Right Click the DTPicker Control, click its Property
2. In the General Tab, under Format drop-down, select 3 - dtpCustome
3. Finally at the bottom CustomFormat textfield, enter the date format you want, example: dd/MM/yyyy
