    Using Umbraco Date Time Picker in ASCX file

    I know this is probably a simple question but is there anyway of using the Umbraco Date Time Picker in an ascx control?

    Many thanks

    Hi,

    You can use the default Umbraco control.Add a reference to EditorControls dll and create an usercontrol

    Declare the following namespace

    using umbraco.uicontrols.DatePicker;

    override the OnInit method to add the control

     protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e)
            {
                base.OnInit(e);

    DateTimePicker dateValuePicker = new DateTimePicker();

    Controls.Add(dateValuePicker);

    }

    Hope this helps you,

    Richard

    Hey Richard... do you know if this approach can be used to create a custom control for a custom data type (i want to add a date picker to a custom control with a couple of other options)?  Any suggestions of the best way to achieve this?

    Hi Greg,

    Yes works also, exactly the same as you use it in a User Control. Just override the oninit method.

    Hope that helps,

    Richard

    You're right i got it working Richard... however I need the source code as I need to make a control with a date picker as well as some other fields, and they need to be able to interact with each other.  Think I'm going to outsource this one as I dont have time to figure it out myself right now :(

    Hi there

    Sorry to reactivate an old post but is someone able to expand on Richards' post.

    The bit I am missing is how, after adding the code detailed, do you get a datepicker appearing on the page within your user control.

    As background - I am wanting to add a custom user control as a dashboard item with 2 date pickers (date from, date to).

    Thanks

    Nigel
