Hi Experts,

I have a databound DateTimepicker on my form.  If I select a date and save the record it works ok but if I dont select a value (i.e leave the default date)  in nothing is saved to the database.

A previous question i found describes how to set the datetimepicker to blank, how can I set the selected value to automatically save to the database as the current date? - If the default value of the datetimepicker is acceptable, I do not wish the user to have to click it for it to be saved to the database, should it be unnacceptable it would be down to the user to change it to the correct date.
