Hi,
I have 4 datetime picker objects on my win form.
On form load I would like to set those 4 datetime pickers like:
1. First picker as first date of the current month
2. Second picker as last date of current month
3. third picker as last date of previous month
4. Forth picker as first date of previous month...

Can someone help me to make this working. I would appreciate your time and effort a lot.
Thanks.

You can do:
Public Class Form1

    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        Dim CurrentFirstOfMonth As New DateTime(DateTime.Today.Year, DateTime.Today.Month, 1)
        DateTimePicker1.Value = CurrentFirstOfMonth
        DateTimePicker2.Value = CurrentFirstOfMonth.AddMonths(1).AddDays(-1)
        DateTimePicker3.Value = CurrentFirstOfMonth.AddDays(-1)
        DateTimePicker4.Value = CurrentFirstOfMonth.AddMonths(-1)
    End Sub

End Class

first day of current month:
DateTime firstDayOfCurrentMonth = new DateTime(DateTime.Now.Year, DateTime.Now.Month, 1);

last day of current month:
DateTime lastDayOfCurrentMonth = new DateTime(DateTime.Now.Year, DateTime.Now.Month, DateTime.Now.Day).AddMonths(1).AddDays(-1);

first day of previous month:
DateTime firstDayOfCurrentMonth = new DateTime(DateTime.Now.Year, DateTime.Now.Month-1, 1);

last day of previous month:
DateTime lastDayOfCurrentMonth = new DateTime(DateTime.Now.Year, DateTime.Now.Month-1, DateTime.Now.Day).AddMonths(1).AddDays(-1);

Simply you can use Dateserial like :
        Me.DateTimePicker1.Value = DateSerial(Year(Now), Month(Now), 1)
        Me.DateTimePicker2.Value = DateSerial(Year(Now), Month(Now) + 1, 1 - 1)
        Me.DateTimePicker3.Value = DateSerial(Year(Now), Month(Now), 1 - 1)
        Me.DateTimePicker4.Value = DateSerial(Year(Now), Month(Now) - 1, 1)
