Hi,

You could use the DateTimePicker control thats available in the toolbox... to get the selected date use the Value property which returns a DateTime object:

            DateTime dob = this.dateTimePicker1.Value;

Then use the DateTime properties and methods, e.g.:

            string year = dob.Year;
            string month = dob.Month;
            string day = dob.Day
            string dobInShort = dob.ToShortDateString();

some corrections to my example:

            DateTime dob = this.dateTimePicker1.Value;
            string year = dob.Year.ToString();
            string month = dob.Month.ToString();
            string day = dob.Day.ToString();

            string dobInShort = dob.ToShortDateString();
