	// after MaxDateTime. Use a StringBuilder object to build the string 
	// for efficiency. 
	private void DateTimePicker1_DropDown(object sender, 
		System.EventArgs e)

		System.Text.StringBuilder messageBuilder = 
			new System.Text.StringBuilder();
		messageBuilder.Append("Choose a date after: ");
