    datetime picker info

    I have a form with a button, textbox and a datetimepicker.

    I want to click on datetimepicker and choose a date, then click on button, then the date should show in the textbox.
    After I have click on datetimepicker and then the button ,it shows the date, but in the wrong format.

    Here is my code, I am using it in my button code

    DateTimePickerOutDate.Format = DateTimePickerFormat.Custom
    DateTimePickerOutDate.CustomFormat = "dd MMMM yyyy"
    txtSearchDateOut.Text = DateTimePickerOutDate.Value
    The date that I want it to display must be dd mmmm yyyy (09 October 2012), but is shows in the textbox as 10/09/2012 2:43:22 PM

    What am I doing wrong, is there someplace that I must change the datetimepicker values as well.

    The Value property of the DateTimePicker returns a DateTime. It's just a DateTime like any other, which no specific knowledge of the DateTimePicker or the format it displays its contents in. If you want the data displayed in the TextBox using the same format as the DateTimePicker then use the Text property of the DateTimePicker, which is already a formatted String, rather than the Value.
