     This simple project demonstrates how you can use System DateTime Picker in your GUI application in order to get/set time or date easily. This is some sort of replacement to common DateTime picker used in vb6, which depends on a relatively large OCX file, which does not even support for modern Windows GUI styles. Please note that this is almost a very basic version.

  • No need common OCX in vb6 to use the DateTime Picker in GUI.
  • Perfectly works on all modern operating systems without any dependency.
  • Better performance compared to the OCX in VB6. (Direct access to SysDateTimePick32).
  • Supports for all modern Windows GUI styles, which you cannot get from the common OCX used in VB6 (not even with the manifest).


Your comments are greatly welcome.

For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com

That is great! It's just what I want, and I don't have to add a big OCX to a date selection anymore!!
