Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public enum DateTimePickerFormat

Member nameDescription
CustomThe DateTimePicker control displays the date/time value in a custom format. For more information, see CustomFormat.
LongThe DateTimePicker control displays the date/time value in the long date format set by the user's operating system.
ShortThe DateTimePicker control displays the date/time value in the short date format set by the user's operating system.
TimeThe DateTimePicker control displays the date/time value in the time format set by the user's operating system.

This enumeration is used by members such as DateTimePicker.Format.

NoteNote

The actual date/time formats are determined by the date, time, and regional settings set in the user's operating system.

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);
	}
