Blank .text value for DateTimePicker control

 Blank .text value for DateTimePicker control

Can anyone tell me how to display a blank value for the MS DateTimePicker?
I've read a few old articles that either give a useless workaround(.Format =
DateTimePickerFormat.Custom, .CustomFormat = " ") or simply mention that
it's impossible.  Was the .text property added to the .NET version (not
mentioned in older articles) and if so, should I not be able to have .text =
"" no matter what the .value is, to simply display a blank date to the user
before they click the control?  I wouldn't be able to use this control if
it's not doable, as a default date doesn't make sense for what I'm trying to

Set the control's ShowCheckBox property to True. The state of the
checkbox indicates whether a value is specified or not.
