Hi,

I'm using a Data Time Picker control (System.Windows.Forms.DataTimePicker) in my application.

I set it's ShowCheckBox Property to True. And set it Checked Property to False, and Set the default value to 01/01/1978

Then when i run the application, the Data Time Picker control is always Checked! When i back to the Form Design, the Checked Property stands as False. Why??! This simply confusing me.. Did i miss out something?

So, the question is:

How to set the Data Time Picker Control value and make it stays UnChecked?

In vb6 time, i can use DTPicker1.Value = Null but this is Not working in .net.

Any idea? thks

just a suggestion

try setting the showcheckbox property after the setting the default value

    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        DateTimePicker1.Value = Now
        DateTimePicker1.ShowCheckBox = True
    End Sub

this is a bug in win xp !!
I've had the same problem .. after slamming my head w/ wall a few times, i came across an article from MS website, which basically said this is a bug in win xp common controls. this was 3-4 months ago. i think they've fixed it by now. i can't find the article !

I've search the internet and there are several mentions of this problem but they all suggest this solution

dtp.value = now
dtp.checked = true
dtp.checked = false
