The WinForms DateTimePicker control provides an intuitive interface through which users can pick a date and edit date and time information in different editing modes. It displays dates and time in different formats, allows null values, and provides validation for dates. The date-time edit control provides easy date selection through touch, keyboard, and mouse interaction. It supports watermarks, minimum and maximum dates, date formats, nullable, date validation, and much more. In addition, it supports month and year selection by disabling date selection.


Different editing modes help edit dates and times through keyboard interactions in free-flow editing and mask mode. This helps restrict date input in formatted values based on a date-time pattern.
