Property Value

A string value using .NET DateTime syntax format specifiers. Default value = "d" (ShortDate).


Using the DateFormatproperty provides a great deal of flexibility on how to display dates. Examples include: You could also display the date format in the TextBox when the control first loads to provide a 'hint' to users of the required format. Example:

BasicDatePicker1.DateFormat = "Date: MMM d, yyyy"; //Date: Feb 20, 2005
BasicDatePicker1.DateFormat = "M-d-yy"; //2-20-05
BasicDatePicker1.DateFormat = "MMMM yyyy"; //February 2005
string myDateFormat = "Date: MMM d, yyyy";
BasicDatePicker1.DateFormat = myDateFormat;
BasicDatePicker1.NullDateText = myDateFormat;
