DateTimePicker not a valid windows class????????

P: n/a
Dan
I'm trying to learn VB on my own, and recently bought vb.net version 2003.
The book I'm learning from is "Getting Started with Microsoft vb.net version
2003" by Michael Halvorson.

I've gone through all the lessons, except 1, for the DateTimePicker control.
I click on it in the tool bar, but as soon as I drag it to the form I get a
message that says "DateTimePicker not a valid windows class". All other
tools work with no problem. This is the only one that's giving me a problem.

Anybody have any ideas?

Dan,

First of all... The date time picker in 2003 sucks. I have not tried it yet
in 2005 beta, but believe me I will tonight.
The controls are very different depending on whether you are getting them
from the Windows forms or from the Web forms so which is this you are using?

Regards
Jerry

Thanks. I really don't know what more I can tell you. All the other tools
work with no problem at all. But DateTimePicker comes up with "not a valid
windows class".

Running Windows XP home edition with SP1.

Dan,

When you right click on your toolbar where the datetimerpicker is, than
opens a window where you can see where it comes from. What is writen in the
checked row from the datetimepicker there?

Maybe something strange?

Cor;

It just has the standard list that all the rest of them have. The only one
that't checked is "List View". Same as all the other tools.

Thanks for your help.

Dan
