Dim dtFromCol As New GridViewDateTimeColumn("FromDate")
.Format = DateTimePickerFormat.Custom
.CustomFormat = "M/d/yy" 'I'm looking for the shortest date format, i.e. 1/1/12 or 12/31/12
.Width = 70
.Other columns follow
When I click the cell I get the datetime picker & the date selected shows up in the desired format (M/d/yy) in the cell, but when I click or Tab away from the cell the cell value changes to a long date format like 2/14/2012 12:00:00 AM . I'm trying not to display the full year (2012) and I don't want the time.
I have tryed customizing the cell's editor in the CellEditorInitialized event or forcing the desired date into the cell in the CellValidated event to no avail. Thanks for any help.
