Hi zachvaldez,

Can you use two dtpickers?  If so just do:
   Dim start_date As Date
   Dim end_date as Date

 
    Private Sub DateTimePicker1_ValueChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles DateTimePicker1.ValueChanged
        start_date = Me.DateTimePicker1.Value
    End Sub

    Private Sub DateTimePicker2_ValueChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles DateTimePicker2.ValueChanged
        end_date = Me.DateTimePicker2.Value
    End Sub

Cheers,
Hillwaaa

I really not sure if this is the best route to go. I plan of putting a date range in two textboxes. But I would like to click an object to display a calendar then select a particular date then that number will entered to a textbox for the begin date . The same is true also in putting an enddate. The result of it . There will be 2 controls showing the begin date and end date.

You just use Hillwaaa's code like this
to calc the number of days.

    Private Sub DateTimePicker1_ValueChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles DateTimePicker1.ValueChanged
        start_date = Me.DateTimePicker1.Value
        TextBox1.Text = start_date.ToString()
    End Sub

    Private Sub DateTimePicker2_ValueChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles DateTimePicker2.ValueChanged
        end_date = Me.DateTimePicker2.Value
        TextBox2.Text = end_date.ToString()
        TextBox3.Text = (end_date.Date.Subtract(start_date.Date).Days).ToString

    End Sub

And here is how to create a dynamic datepicker

Imports System.Windows.Forms

' Create a new DateTimePicker control and initialize it.
Dim DateTimePicker1 As New DateTimePicker()
Dim DateTimePicker2 As New DateTimePicker()

Dim start_date As Date
Dim end_date as Date

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click    
    ' Set the MinDate and MaxDate.
    DateTimePicker1.MinDate = New DateTime(1969, 11, 29)
    'DateTimePicker1.MaxDate = DateTime.Today
   
    ' Set the CustomFormat string.
    DateTimePicker1.CustomFormat = "MMMM dd, yyyy - dddd"
    DateTimePicker1.Format = DateTimePickerFormat.Custom
   
    ' Show the CheckBox and display the control as an up-down control.
    DateTimePicker1.ShowCheckBox = True
    DateTimePicker1.ShowUpDown = True

End Sub

Private Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click    
    ' Set the MinDate and MaxDate.
    DateTimePicker2.MinDate = New DateTime(1969, 11, 29)
    'DateTimePicker2.MaxDate = DateTime.Today
   
    ' Set the CustomFormat string.
    DateTimePicker2.CustomFormat = "MMMM dd, yyyy - dddd"
    DateTimePicker2.Format = DateTimePickerFormat.Custom
   
    ' Show the CheckBox and display the control as an up-down control.
    DateTimePicker2.ShowCheckBox = True
    DateTimePicker2.ShowUpDown = True

End Sub

    Private Sub DateTimePicker1_ValueChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles DateTimePicker1.ValueChanged
        start_date = Me.DateTimePicker1.Value
        TextBox1.Text = start_date.ToString()
    End Sub

    Private Sub DateTimePicker2_ValueChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles DateTimePicker2.ValueChanged
        end_date = Me.DateTimePicker2.Value
        TextBox2.Text = end_date.ToString()
        TextBox3.Text = (end_date.Date.Subtract(start_date.Date).Days).ToString

    End Sub
