    validating a date picker in vb6.0

    Hallo guys,
    I'm still knew in vb and would like to know how to validate a date picker.
    For example I have a date picker in one of my forms and would like it not to allow the user to choose a date before last year. A typical example I'd not want the user to choose 1890 as the year of birth. Thanks in advance

    Welcome to VBForums

    For that kind of thing, you don't actually need to validate it at all - just tell it do that for you, by setting apt values in the MinDate and MaxDate properties (which by default are #01/01/1601# and #12/31/9999#).

    That has the bonus of not only validating, but also stopping the user from even selecting invalid values in the first place.

    DTPicker has two properties, MaxDate and MinDate. You can set these properties to whatever values you like.
    Use [code] source code here[/code] tags when you post source code.

    use dtpicker1.mindate to define the minimum available date and dtpicker1.maxdate to define maximum available date, use datediff() function to validate the given date
