datetimepicker formats

I hope this is a stupid question and I will be able to get on with life quickly!

It seems that no matter how I specify a format for a datetimepicker control, it shows up with the date as well as the time.

Is there some obvious oversight that causes this?  I can give examples but am hoping that this is an easy one.

Hi zoseri,

The following works fine for me:

            timeControl = new DateTimePicker();
            timeControl.Format = DateTimePickerFormat.Custom;
            timeControl.CustomFormat = "HH:mm";

The same can be done in the design view - select your control, hit F4 and in the properties set Format to Custome and in the CustomFormat type in HH:mm:ss or whatever

Maybe my problem is that I am putting the date into a textbox?

For some of my date fields, the date is FYI only so I put it into
a ReadOnly textbox...when I do a ToString on the date, even
though a Custom Format is used, does the format not get
taken into account?

Thx again

Thanks guys.  It seems after all that the problem was when I tried to put the data into a textbox...so the datetimepickers do work fine and I just strip off any unwanted parts in the string sent to textbox...

I'll split points anyway
