Nebula CDateTime Widget(Style Settings)

CDateTime can take on many forms depending upon the setting of the style in its constructor.
These styles are found in a separate file:, simply for the convenience of typing 3 characters rather than 9 :)


General Styles
DROP_DOWN->Creates both the textual and graphical parts; the text is shown and there is a button to drop down the graphical
SIMPLE->Creates ONLY the graphical selection part; there is no text box and no button
(Note that if neither of the above styles is set, then ONLY the textual selection part will be created; there will be no graphical part and no button)
