Following code examples demonstrates the same.


private Nullable<DateTime> m_DateTimeValue = DateTime.Now;
/// <summary>
/// Gets/Sets the value of the DateTimePickerExt
/// </summary>
public Nullable<DateTime> ValueExt
       return m_DateTimeValue; 
       m_DateTimeValue = value;
       if (value != null)
           this.Value = m_DateTimeValue.Value;
void DateTimePickerExt_ValueChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
       if(CheckNoneButtonClicked == false)
       this.ValueExt = this.Value;
       CheckNoneButtonClicked = false;



Private m_DateTimeValue? As DateTime = DateTime.Now
''' <summary>
''' Gets/Sets the value of the DateTimePickerExt
''' </summary>
Public Property ValueExt() As DateTime?
 Return m_DateTimeValue
   End Get
   Set(ByVal value? As DateTime)
 m_DateTimeValue = value
 If value IsNot Nothing Then
  Me.Value = m_DateTimeValue.Value
 End If
End Set
End Property```
Private Sub DateTimePickerExt_ValueChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)

      Me.ValueExt = Me.Value
 End If
