So guys here we look at C# DateTimePicker.This is our first DateTimePicker lesson so its a simple one.The aim is to see how to retrieve date from a DateTimePicker and also how to set the date. We are setting date to datetimepicker from a textbox and also retrieve it and show it there. DateTimePickers allow us an easy way to work with dates in .NET. You can easily select the date and use without going to the hassle of remembering Date formats.We want to programmatically set and get the datetimepicker value.
