How to listen to the key events of WinForms DateTimePicker (DateTimePickerAdv) when the user is typing a new date via the keyboard?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: DateTimePickerAdv

Changing the date by using keyboard

The datetimepickerAdv derives from Gradient Panel which in turn derives from the .NET framework panel which does not expose the key events, so you would need to cast the datetimepickerAdv to a control to listen to the key events


private void Form1_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
   ((Control)this.dateTimePickerAdv1).KeyUp +=new KeyEventHandler(Form1_KeyUp);



Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
    CType(Me.dateTimePickerAdv1, Control).KeyUp += New KeyEventHandler(Form1_KeyUp)
End Sub
