date time picker null value

I am having trouble using the DateTimePicker control.  

I basically want to print out each time a user choses a date.  So I use the ValueChanged event.  

However everytime I run my program, the DateTimePicker starts with a null value.  I found this out by just having a messagebox display the dateTimePickerControl.value.

I have the Control on a panel that is not initially visible, so only when I change to that panel is where the right date gets displayed.

Since it is a null value any other methods that I run because of a date change crash my program.  

I was thinking of creating the control dynamically, but I was wondering if there was another way?

Well I change the messagebox to print out the Value of the control and it worked fine...but it only displays the date and time a generic way

I need it formatted to yyyy-MM-dd cuz i'm using mysql so I need to use the control.text which gives me a null value when loading hte program up
