In the code below, I am attempting to set the date that displays in my datetimepicker after I hit the Drop Down arrow.  I would like to displays today's date in the drop down calendar once I click the Drop Down arrow.  The code I am have below is not working.


 private void dtpChangeEffDate_DropDown(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            if (this.dtpChangeEffDate.Value.ToShortDateString() != DateTime.Now.ToShortDateString())
            {
               
                this.dtpChangeEffDate.Value = DateTime.Now;
                this.dtpChangeEffDate.Text = DateTime.Now.ToShortDateString();
            }
        }

The problem is you have to first:  create a listItem and that item will have...then you have to add the listItem to the dropdownlist...


dr.Items.Add(listItem);

What is this event for--->  private void dtpChangeEffDate_DropDown(object sender, EventArgs e)

if it's for a dropdown, then are you trying to add a new select option once it opened?

I derive the value from a call to a method (ChangeEffectiveDate) in my Gateway with the code below:


this.dtpChangeEffDate.Value = this.mGatwy.ChangeEffectiveDate(this.txtPolNumber.Text.ToUpper(), pEffDate);

and by your Gateway, I assume you mean your Main class and that this is a desktop application?
