DateTimePicker - Format Value

My system short date format is dd/mm/yy.

The DateTimePicker returns mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss PM.

I need to get this value formated into dd/mm/yyyy regardless of the system
short date format, what do I need to use please.

Regards
Terry

The DateTimePicker control's 'Value' property returns a 'Date' instance,
which you can format by calling its 'ToString' method and passing
appropriate formatting options to this method.
