DateTimePicker in DataGridView Msdn2 example

20 New Member
Ok, I'm trying to make a column in my data grid be a DateTimePicker column.
I copied and pasted all the code from the msdn website. Now, the difference in my code and the microsoft code is that my datagrid is not in the startup form. Also, the form it's in is an MdiChild.

So I get errors when the form containing the datagrid is opened.

Next, when i go and take out the whole mdichild thing, the form with the datagrid won't recognize the control inputs. The first command I have in the onLoad function is setting a checkbox. It says "Object Reference not set to the instance of an object". So basically it's not recognizing it's own inputs.

Does someone now how to fix this? Thank you very much

I'm new to the datagridview control, and am left wondering how one goes about restricting input to numeric only. Is it possible to trap key presses at the cell level, and in the relevant columns, ignore them if non-numeric? Greg.

Hi Everyone, There are so many Nullable DateTimePickers out there that this post may not even be found among all the others, but I wanted to try. First, I want to thank all the authors of the code I used as a starting point. Second, I hope this code helps someone as much as they helped me. I have built a Nullable DateTimePicker and NullableCalendarColumn/Cell/EditingControl that is nearly 100% complete, as far as I can tell. There is...

I'm trying to make a datagridview column to act like a datetimepicker column (C#.Net 2005). These are the behaviours that the dgv should have: 1) Initially all the cells of the dtp column should be blank unless they are filled by the user. 2) As soon as the user enters a cell, the dtp control should appear as the editing control of that cell. If there's a value in the cell beforehand, that value is set as the value of the dtp editing control...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
