How to set the Visibility of DateTimePicker in C#?
  • Last Updated : 02 Aug, 2019

In Windows Form, the DateTimePicker control is used to select and display date/time with a specific format in your form. In DateTimePicker control, you can set the visibility of this control using Visible Property. If the value of this property is set to true, then the DateTimePicker control display on the screen. And if the value of this property is set to false, then the DateTimePicker control does not display on the screen. The default value of this property is true. You can set this property in two different ways:

1. Design-Time: It is the easiest way to set the visibility of the DateTimePicker as shown in the following steps:

  • Step 1: Create a windows form as shown in the below image:

    Visual Studio -> File -> New -> Project -> WindowsFormApp

  • Step 2: Next, drag and drop the DateTimePicker control from the toolbox to the form as shown in the below image:

  • Step 3: After drag and drop you will go to the properties of the DateTimePicker and set the visibility of the DateTimePicker as shown in the below image:

    Output:

2. Run-Time: It is a little bit trickier than the above method. In this method, you can set the visibility of the DateTimePicker control programmatically with the help of given syntax:

public bool Visible { get; set; }

The value of this property is of System.Boolean type, either true or false. The following steps show how to set the visibility of the DateTimePicker dynamically:



  • Step 1: Create a DateTimePicker using the DateTimePicker() constructor is provided by the DateTimePicker class.
    // Creating a DateTimePicker
    DateTimePicker dt = new DateTimePicker();
    
  • Step 2: After creating DateTimePicker, set the Visible property of the DateTimePicker provided by the DateTimePicker class.
    // Setting the visibility
    dt.Visible = false;
    
  • Step 3: And last add this DateTimePicker control to the form using the following statement:
    // Adding this control to the form
    this.Controls.Add(dt);
    

    Example:




    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.ComponentModel;
    using System.Data;
    using System.Drawing;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Text;
    using System.Threading.Tasks;
    using System.Windows.Forms;
      
    namespace WindowsFormsApp48 {
      
    public partial class Form1 : Form {
      
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }
      
        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
      
            // Creating and setting the 
            // properties of the Label
            Label lab = new Label();
            lab.Location = new Point(183, 162);
            lab.Size = new Size(172, 20);
            lab.Text = "Select Date and Time";
            lab.Font = new Font("Comic Sans MS", 12);
      
            // Adding this control to the form
            this.Controls.Add(lab);
      
            // Creating and setting the
            // properties of the DateTimePicker
            DateTimePicker dt = new DateTimePicker();
            dt.Location = new Point(360, 162);
            dt.Size = new Size(292, 26);
            dt.MaxDate = new DateTime(2500, 12, 20);
            dt.MinDate = new DateTime(1753, 1, 1);
            dt.Format = DateTimePickerFormat.Long;
            dt.Name = "MyPicker";
            dt.Font = new Font("Comic Sans MS", 12);
            dt.Visible = false;
            dt.Value = DateTime.Today;
      
            // Adding this 
            // control to the form
            this.Controls.Add(dt);
        }
    }
    }

    Output:

    Before setting the Visible property to false:

    After setting the Visible property to false:
