How to enforce WinForms DateTimePicker (DateTimePickerAdv) to react on Home and End keys which is a default behavior of .Net DateTimePicker?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: DateTimePickerAdv |

Behavior of .NET DateTimePicker

We need to override the ProcessCmdKey as illustrated below:

C#

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);
}

 

VB

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)
   ElseIf keyData = Keys.End Then
       Me.Value = New DateTime(2005, 5, 31)
   End If
   Return MyBase.ProcessCmdKey(msg, keyData)
End Function
