Default Monthview - today variable?

I am using a monthview object in my form and I have two text boxes to represent a date range that the user will be able to select. What I want is for the current date to be displayed in both the text boxes. I can physically put the current date into the monthview.value, but then tomorrow I will just have to change it again. On the monthview calendar the current date is circled in red, so there must be something that knows the current date. I want to take that variable and put it into my text boxes. Does anyone know how to access that? Thanks.

You can use the Date variable to return the current date. Time returns the time. Now returns both together.

Default Month View

If memory serves me correct it goes a little something like this:

with monthview
.month = month(now)
.day = day(now)
.year = year(now)
end with

that should be thrown at the form load event. You may need to check the functions but i think they are right (sorry didn't have the luxury of a vb editor when posting).

Hope that helps.

Default Thank you

Thank you VolteFace. I was able to make it work with "Date" quite easily by making a puiblic function called SetDate that is called on the Form_Load() event with the following:

Public Function setDate()
calDate.Value = Date

txtOne.Text = Date
txtTwo.Text = Date
End Function

I just need a good reference book...
