I have 7 checkboxes with text Monday to Sunday. So, whatever the day is choosen that checkbox has to be checked. Can anyone pls help me in what to do and how to do.

    For example the date i have choosen is 21/02/2008 which is Thursday, so checkbox having Thursday to be checked automatically.

     Hi Priya,

    You can do it in a simple way.
    Make a method like this.

     private void UnCheckedControl()
            {
                checkBox1.Checked = false;
                checkBox2.Checked = false;
                checkBox3.Checked = false;
                checkBox4.Checked = false;
                checkBox5.Checked = false;
                checkBox6.Checked = false;
                checkBox7.Checked = false;
            }

    place following code under your dateTimePicker1_ValueChanged event and run the application. Hope this will solve your issue. There are other complex ways to solve this issue.

     DateTime dt = dateTimePicker1.Value;
                if (dt.DayOfWeek.ToString() == "Monday")
                {
                    UnCheckedControl();
                    checkBox1.Checked= true;
                }
                else if (dt.DayOfWeek.ToString() == "Tuesday")
                {
                    UnCheckedControl();
                    checkBox2.Checked = true;
                }
                else if (dt.DayOfWeek.ToString() == "Wednesday")
                {
                    UnCheckedControl();
                    checkBox3.Checked = true;
                }
                else if (dt.DayOfWeek.ToString() == "Thursday")
                {
                    UnCheckedControl();
                    checkBox4.Checked = true;
                }
                else if (dt.DayOfWeek.ToString() == "Friday")
                {
                    UnCheckedControl();
                    checkBox5.Checked = true;
                }
                else if (dt.DayOfWeek.ToString() == "Saturday")
                {
                    UnCheckedControl();
                    checkBox6.Checked = true;
                }
                else if (dt.DayOfWeek.ToString() == "Sunday")
                {
                    UnCheckedControl();
                    checkBox7.Checked = true;
                }
