The following code example demonstrates initializing a DateTimePicker object by setting the Format to a DateTimePickerFormat value. To run this example paste the following code in a form and call InitializeDateTimePicker from the form's constructor or Load event-handling method.


// Declare the DateTimePicker.
internal System.Windows.Forms.DateTimePicker DateTimePicker1;


private void InitializeDateTimePicker()
{
    // Construct the DateTimePicker.
    this.DateTimePicker1 = new System.Windows.Forms.DateTimePicker();

    //Set size and location.
    this.DateTimePicker1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(40, 88);
    this.DateTimePicker1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(160, 21);
    
    // Set the alignment of the drop-down MonthCalendar to right.
    this.DateTimePicker1.DropDownAlign = LeftRightAlignment.Right;

    // Set the Value property to 50 years before today.
    DateTimePicker1.Value = System.DateTime.Now.AddYears(-50);

    //Set a custom format containing the string "of the year"
    DateTimePicker1.Format = DateTimePickerFormat.Custom;
    DateTimePicker1.CustomFormat = "MMM dd, 'of the year' yyyy ";

    // Add the DateTimePicker to the form.
    this.Controls.Add(this.DateTimePicker1);
}

// Declare the DateTimePicker.
private System.Windows.Forms.DateTimePicker dateTimePicker1;

private void InitializeDateTimePicker()
{
    // Construct the DateTimePicker.
    this.dateTimePicker1 = new System.Windows.Forms.DateTimePicker();
    //Set size and location.
    this.dateTimePicker1.set_Location(new System.Drawing.Point(40, 88));
    this.dateTimePicker1.set_Size(new System.Drawing.Size(160, 21));
    // Set the alignment of the drop-down MonthCalendar to right.
    this.dateTimePicker1.set_DropDownAlign(LeftRightAlignment.Right);
    // Set the Value property to 50 years before today.
    dateTimePicker1.set_Value(System.DateTime.get_Now().AddYears(-50));
    //Set a custom format containing the string "of the year"
    dateTimePicker1.set_Format(DateTimePickerFormat.Custom);
    dateTimePicker1.set_CustomFormat("MMM dd, 'of the year' yyyy ");
    // Add the DateTimePicker to the form.
    this.get_Controls().Add(this.dateTimePicker1);
} //InitializeDateTimePicker
