DateTime picker future date

Asked On April 18, 2007 09:14 PM UTC

I have a grid with a datetime column. By default the column will have no default values and the cells empty. When a user click into the cell to dropdown the datepicker I want it to default to a future date, not today's date. Is there a way to do this. I tried using CurrentCellStartEditing and the grdData.CurrentCell.Renderer to get the control but it doesn't seem to work. Anyone have any ideas.

Thanks in advanced.

Hi Ken,

One way you can do this by hanlding the CurrentCellShowingDropDown event of the grid and change the TodayDate of the MonthCalendar control in a grid. Here is a code snippet.

private void gridDataBoundGrid1_CurrentCellShowingDropDown(object sender, GridCurrentCellShowingDropDownEventArgs e)
GridDataBoundGrid grid = sender as GridDataBoundGrid ;
GridDropDownMonthCalendarCellRenderer cr = grid.CurrentCell.Renderer as GridDropDownMonthCalendarCellRenderer;
if( cr != null )
foreach(Control c in cr.DropDownContainer.Controls )
if( c is MonthCalendar )
MonthCalendar calendar = c as MonthCalendar;
DateTime future = DateTime.Now.AddDays(1);
calendar.TodayDate = future;

Best regards,
