In visual Basic, How do I compare two dates from the datepicker to ensure the user does not set the "From" Date before the "To" Date

Hello Everyone
   When using the following code, I get the blue line " Operator '>'  is not defined for types System,windows.forms.datepicker. Can someone tell me how I can use the datepicker in windows forms to compare

If (DateFromTimePick > DateToTimePick) Then
   console.writeline("Your FROM date has to be smaller then your TO date")
      end If

If DateFromTimePick and DateToTimePick are the names of your controls, you would need to use a property on those controls, such as SelectedDate to compare. SelectedDate returns a DateTime object which has the method "CompareTo" which would allow you to compare one time to another.

A control cannot be bigger than another. The value they contain can be bigger however.
