The calendar control is built into all date fields. You're familiar with it: arrow right or left to scroll through the months, click a day and it populates the field, click "today" and today's date is entered. Of course, you may not want the Date Picker to always be offered. Using the ShowDatePicker property, which is on all textbox controls, you can select one of two values. For Dates will display the calendar control when the text box is bound to a DateTime field and Never will totally suppress the calendar control. Again, total convenience and reliability. No add-in, no references—just add the field and set the date.
