The Editors Control for Windows Forms application is flexible data entry controls. The Windows Forms Editor component provides highly customizable, intelligent controls for managing data input, such as Text Box, Masked Text Box that supports Standard, Numeric and Date Time masks, Date Time Picker, and a slick Spin Editor.By adding data input validation and masks, developers can enhance the functionality of their application.
You can get a reference to the Date Picker Text Box in the Date Picker’s control template and hook up an event handler for the event by overriding the base class’ On Apply Template() method: In the Text Changed event handler you can then parse the value of the Date Picker’s Text property using the System. Try Parse Exact method and, providing that the Text property actually contains a valid date, then set the Selected Date property of the Date Picker: An important thing to notice in the above sample code is that the Date Time.
This behaviour happens even if you set the Update Source Trigger property of the Binding to Property Changed and may cause some issues in your application.
If you for example are performing some validations based on the value of the source property and also are enabling or disabling controls or presenting some visual feedback to the user as a result of this validation logic, you probably want to perform the very same logic regardless of whether the user enters the new date using the calendar – the source property does get set as expected when a date is selected in the calendar – or by entering it directly in the Text Box.
Depending on your application platform, you can use Nu Get package manager, Bower etc. Following screenshots show the layout of user interface in my prototype implementation.
The explanation of this implementation very simple.
