Q

Entering a blank date in the DateTimePicker control

The DateTimePicker control does not allow you to enter a blank date. Is there a way to work around this inability?
Interesting, I never noticed that before. The idea behind the DateTimePicker is that you are entering a date and if you allowed a blank date, that's not quite kosher. You could derive your own control from the DateTimePicker and handle the edit box yourself so you would allow the delete or backspace key to delete the text.
