How to set Up and Down Button in DateTimePicker in C#?
  • Last Updated : 02 Aug, 2019

In Windows Forms, the DateTimePicker control is used to select and display date/time with a specific format in your form. In DateTimePicker control, you are allowed to set a spin button control or up-down control in the DateTimePicker to adjust date/time using the ShowUpDown Property. If the value of this property is set to true, then an up-down control display in the DateTimePicker control, otherwise, false. You can set this property in two different ways:

1. Design-Time: It is the easiest way to set an up-down control in 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 an up-down control in 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 an up-down control in the DateTimePicker control programmatically with the help of given syntax:



public bool ShowUpDown { get; set; }

The value of this property is of System.Boolean type, either true or false. The default value of this property is false. The following steps show how to set an up-down control in 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 ShowUpDown property of the DateTimePicker provided by the DateTimePicker class.
    // Setting the ShowUpDown property
    dt.ShowUpDown = true;
    
  • 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);

        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.Time;
        dt.Name = "MyPicker";
        dt.Font = new Font("Comic Sans MS", 12);
        dt.ShowUpDown = true;
  
        // Adding this control
        // to the form
        this.Controls.Add(dt);
