You can do that by handling the Enter and Leave events


private void dateTimePickerAdv1_Enter(object sender, System.EventArgs e)


this.dateTimePickerAdv1.CustomFormat = "dd/MM/yy HH:ss";


private void dateTimePickerAdv1_Leave(object sender, System.EventArgs e)


this.dateTimePickerAdv1.CustomFormat = "dd-MMM-yy HH:mm";



Private Sub dateTimePickerAdv1_Enter(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)

Me.dateTimePickerAdv1.CustomFormat = "dd/MM/yy HH:ss"

End Sub

Private Sub dateTimePickerAdv1_Leave(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)

Me.dateTimePickerAdv1.CustomFormat = "dd-MMM-yy HH:mm"

End Sub
