Is there an event when date is selected via date picker in Microsoft Access?

I have a text box for entering a date and it is set to use Access 2010's built-in date picker. Is there an event that fires when someone selects a date via the date picker? When I select a date via the date picker, it updates the date in the field but the before update and after update events of the field don't fire until I try leaving the field.

Thanks in advance!

Use the OnChange event for that control.

One more question ... is there a way to distinguish in then OnChange event between a change that came from selecting a date in the date picker and a change that is the result of typing in the field?

What I'm trying to do is execute code when a date is entered - either be typing or via the date picker.
You could add a check in the OnChange event like this:
If IsDate(Me.NameOfDatePickerControl.Text) And Me.NameOfDatePickerControl.Text Like "*/*/####" Then
