Use this code in Form_Load after that:

CalendarColumn col = new CalendarColumn();
        this.dataGridView1.Columns.Add(col);
        this.dataGridView1.RowCount = 5;
        foreach (DataGridViewRow row in this.dataGridView1.Rows)
        {
            row.Cells[0].Value = DateTime.Now;
        }

what i want is a calender icon so that the user can select any date.

Yes, that's what it does.

Try editing the cell and then you can select any date.

Answer 1: Add a CellClick event to the datagridview and use this code:

dataGridView1.BeginEdit(true);

Answer 2: You can use many methods to convert it to string. Use:

cellValue..ToShortDateString();
cellValue..ToShortTimeString();
....and others

Use the one that suits you.

Thanks

hey thanx again,
question in answer 2:

is it like this:
String a = dgvDAction[2].ToShortDateString();

please can you specify this clearly, i am not good in C#.
