I am using windows application in C# and .net framework 2.0

I have datepicker with check box

When saving to DB, i want to save both date and time.

Problem:
I want this datepicker to return both and time.
While saving, I dont want to write if checked=true in every form. I need this in class level so that I can just pass the control and return date time if it is checked

>>  so that I can just pass the control and return date time if it is checked

You can simply create a function that is accessible to all forms and takes a parameter of DateTimePicker:
public Nullable<DateTime> GetDTPValue(DateTimePicker picker)
{
    if (picker.Checked)
    {
        return picker.Value;
    }
    else
    }
        return null;
    }
}

Are you using a custom control or have you changed to a custom format for the value?  As the code provided works perfectly for me.

By default it will have the date and time as the value (although the time wouldn't be displayed on the control, which you should see in the Value property when you right click it and select "Properties".

If that property only has the date or whatever you can try to alter the forms Design with this:
this.dateTimePicker1.Value = new System.DateTime(System.DateTime.Now.Year, System.DateTime.Now.Month, System.DateTime.Now.Day, System.DateTime.Now.Hour, System.DateTime.Now.Minute, System.DateTime.Now.Second, System.DateTime.Now.Millisecond);

Here is my example:
using System;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace WindowsFormsApplication3
{
    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            MessageBox.Show(GetDTPValue(this.dateTimePicker1).Value.ToString());
        }

        public Nullable<DateTime> GetDTPValue(DateTimePicker picker)
        {
            if (picker.Checked)
            {
                return picker.Value;
            }
            else
            {
                return null;
            }
        }
    }
}
