This is a specialized textbox class designed to work with date values. It provides handy shortcut keystrokes so that users can quickly navigate to the date value they need. The keystrokes are the same as those used by Quicken, the popular personal finance program.

The keystrokes supported by the control are as follows:

Key Action
T Today
+ Up One Day
- Down One Day
[ Up One Month
] Down One Month
M First Day of Month
H Last Day of montH
Y First Day of Year
R Last Day of yeaR
C Popup Calendar to Select

The "popup calendar" option displays a calendar from which the user can select the desired date.

See the Dabo Class Documentation for an exhaustive documentation of this control's Properties, Events and Methods. (Note that this documentation is no longer live, but it's still available via the Internet Archive).
