How to set the date for the calendar to always show up as today in WinForms DateTimePicker (DateTimePickerAdv)?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: DateTimePickerAdv

Set current datetime

DateTimePickerAdv always displays the value which was set when the control was first added to the form. This is possible by setting the value of the datetimepicker to DateTime.Now in the form load event handler.


private void Form1_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
   this.dateTimePickerAdv1.Value =DateTime.Now ;



Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
   Me.dateTimePickerAdv1.Value = DateTime.Now
End Sub
