How do we enforce DateTimePickerAdv to react on Home and End keys which is a default behavior of .Net Datetime picker?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: DateTimePickerAdv |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |
Last Revised Date: July 10, 2014


We need to override the ProcessCmdKey as illustrated below:


protected override bool ProcessCmdKey(ref Message msg, Keys keyData)


if(keyData == Keys.Home )


this.Value = new DateTime(1753,05,31);


else if(keyData == Keys.End)


this.Value = new DateTime(2005,05,31);


return base.ProcessCmdKey(ref msg,keyData);



Protected Overloads Overrides Function ProcessCmdKey(ByRef msg As Message, ByVal keyData As Keys) As Boolean

If keyData = Keys.Home Then

Me.Value = New DateTime(1753, 5, 31)


If keyData = Keys.End Then

Me.Value = New DateTime(2005, 5, 31)

End If

End If

Return MyBase.ProcessCmdKey(msg, keyData)

End Function
