Hi

I want to initially have the text "Select" in a DataTimePicker. The only way I can think to do this is to place a label in the text(date) area of the DateTimePicker.

Suppose the DateTimePicker is called Me.dtpDate and the label is called Me.lblSelect. How can I re-size and place the label on top of the DateTimePicker so it covers the edit area of the DateTimePicker but still shows the drop down arrow of the DateTimePicker?

Example code would be most appreciated.
