DatePicker controls


Specifies whether an up-down control is used to change the date in the DatePicker control.

The ShowUpDown property takes a boolean value. The default is false. When ShowUpDown is set to true, the drop-down arrow in the DatePicker control is replaced with an up-down control. The user can select individual elements in the date and/or time in the control (year, month, day, hours, minutes, and seconds) and increase or decrease them by one unit using the up or down arrows.

This property cannot be changed at runtime.
