How to customize the DateTime format in the DateTimePickerAdv?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: DateTimePickerAdv |
Published Date: October 14, 2015 |
Last Revised Date: May 22, 2019

You can customize the Date and Time display format in the DateTimePickerAdv by using Format property. The types of display format are,

  1. Long
  2. Short
  3. Time
  4. Custom

 

Long: It helps to display the date/time value in the long date.

Short: It helps to display the date/time value in the short date.

Time: It helps to display the date/time value in the time date.

Custom: It helps to display the date/time value in custom format. 

 

The following code example demonstrates the same.

C#

//Displays the date/time value in the long date format.
this.dateTimePickerAdv1.Format = System.Windows.Forms.DateTimePickerFormat.Long;
//Displays the date/time value in the short date format.
this.dateTimePickerAdv1.Format = System.Windows.Forms.DateTimePickerFormat.Short;
//Displays the date/time value in the time format.
this.dateTimePickerAdv1.Format = System.Windows.Forms.DateTimePickerFormat.Time;
//Displays the date/time value in a custom format.
this.dateTimePickerAdv1.Format = System.Windows.Forms.DateTimePickerFormat.Custom;
//Sets the date/time format of the picker when Format is Custom.
this.dateTimePickerAdv1.CustomFormat = "MMMM/yyyy";

 

VB

'Displays the date/time value in the long date format.
Me.dateTimePickerAdv1.Format = System.Windows.Forms.DateTimePickerFormat.Long
'Displays the date/time value in the short date format.
Me.dateTimePickerAdv1.Format = System.Windows.Forms.DateTimePickerFormat.Short
'Displays the date/time value in the time format. 
Me.dateTimePickerAdv1.Format = System.Windows.Forms.DateTimePickerFormat.Time
'Displays the date/time value in a custom format.
Me.dateTimePickerAdv1.Format = System.Windows.Forms.DateTimePickerFormat.Custom
'Sets the date/time format of the picker when Format is Custom.
Me.dateTimePickerAdv1.CustomFormat = "MMMM/yyyy"
