'Usage

Parameters

Return Value

Type: Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.Controls.DateTimePicker
The DateTimePicker control that was added to the ControlCollection instance.

Exceptions

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

The name or range argument is nulla null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), or the name argument has zero length.

ControlNameAlreadyExistsException

A control with the same name is already in the ControlCollection instance.

InvalidRangeException

The range that was specified is not valid. Multi-area ranges cannot be used. The range should be on the same worksheet as the ControlCollection instance.

The AddDateTimePicker method enables you to add DateTimePicker objects to the end of the ControlCollection. To remove a DateTimePicker that was previously added programmatically, use the Remove method.

The control automatically resizes when the range is resized.

Examples

The following code example adds a DateTimePicker control to cells A1 through C1, and then sets the background of the calendar to light blue.

Private Sub ExcelRangeAddDateTimePicker()

    Dim DateTimePicker1 As Microsoft.Office.Tools. _
        Excel.Controls.DateTimePicker = Me.Controls. _
        AddDateTimePicker(Me.Range("A1", "C1"), _
        "DateTimePicker1")
    DateTimePicker1.CalendarMonthBackground = _
        Color.LightBlue

End Sub

     private void ExcelRangeAddDateTimePicker()
        {

            Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.Controls.DateTimePicker
                dateTimePicker1 = this.Controls.AddDateTimePicker(
                this.Range["A1", "C1"], "dateTimePicker1");
            dateTimePicker1.CalendarMonthBackground = Color.LightBlue;
        }
