    [RESOLVED] Save SetDate

    I display a calendar in my windows form with a particular date highlighted on it:

    Code:
    calBirthDate.SetDate(lTrainee.BirthDate);
    The user then has the possibility to manually change this highlighted date. On saving I want this newly highlighted date to be saved. How do you set the date for setDate()? I tried the following but it didnt work:

    Code:
    lTrainee.BirthDate = (DateTime)calBirthDate.SetDate.Value;

    1. Do you get a build error?
    2. Do you get a run-time error?
    3. Have you checked the value of the calBirthDate.SetDate property at run-time?

    I received a build error so I didnt try to debug it. The first setDate() methods works fine

    I assume you're using the MonthCalendar control. Seems like a funny control. Have a loot at this link MonthCalendar.SelectionRange...

    Thanks, that helped! I kept looking at the code on the MSDN library for setDate() but didnt read the remark that this is just assigning the same value to both selectedRangeStart and selectedRangeEnd. I should therefore be able to use the following code:

    Code:
    lTrainee.BirthDate = (DateTime) calBirthDate.SelectionRange.End;

    Even neater...

    Code:
    // Form Initialisation
    clBirthDate.MaxSelectionCount = 1;
    
    // Event DateSelected
    lTrainee.BirthDate = calBirthDate.SelectionStart;
