Is there a way to specify the way dates can be entered in the DateTimePicker? I'm writing an app for heavy data entry, and I want to be able to type anyof the following:

03161980
031680
03/16/1980
03/16/80
03-16-1980
03-16-80

and get the same result.

Thanks,
Mick

Hi Mick,

As mentioned in the previous thread, we have a DateTimePicker.ValueConverter property you can set to another custom converter that does DateTime to string and back if you'd like to do different logic. That way you could write your own logic for determining how dates convert to strings and back. We are just using the default .NET logic if you don't change that property.
