Detect active field before Button click

I'm working on a VB Compact Framework application, and have a Date-picker field containing (surprise:) dates.

We have six of theses date fields (EventDate1, EventDate2...EventDate6). Sometimes the user needs to put in a special date (like "31-12-2099") which is a code for a special event. So I've made a button to register this date "code" - but I don't know how to detect which of the EventDateX fields was activated right before the user pressed the special date button ?

Please advice
