add a month to a DateTimePicker

I will explain the case:

 

I have 3 controls:

 

1-Frequency

(DropDow)

[Daily, Monthly, Annual]

 

2-Start date

(DateTimePicker)

 

3-Final date
(DateTimePicker)

 

In the case of Frequency and Initial Date, you can select

 

in the case of End date it is a default value

 

The default value for End Date is:

 

If(
Frequency .Selected.Value = "Daily";
StartDate.SelectedDate + 1
)

 

As you can see I add a day to the Start Date because the selected frequency is Daily

 

Now, how can I add a month or a year to the Start Date in case the Frequency is equal to Monthly or Annual?

Hi @King 

you can use this formula in (DefaultDate) property of final date -datetimePicker to set value Dynamically based on the frequency dropdown.

 

If(
    Frequency_dropdown.Selected.Value = "Daily",
    Start_date_picker.SelectedDate + 1,
    Frequency_dropdown.Selected.Value = "Monthly",
    Date(
        Year(Start_date_picker.SelectedDate),
        Month(Start_date_picker.SelectedDate) + 3,
        Day(Start_date_picker.SelectedDate)
    ),
    Frequency_dropdown.Selected.Value = "Annual",
    Date(
        Year(Start_date_picker.SelectedDate)+1,
        Month(Start_date_picker.SelectedDate),
        Day(Start_date_picker.SelectedDate)
    )
)

Try:

Switch(Frequency.Selected.Value = "Daily";DateAdd(StartDate.SelectedDate + 1);

          "Monthly"; DateAdd(StartDate.SelectedDate + 30);

        "Annual"; DateAdd(StartDate.SelectedDate + 365))

If each month had 30 days, it would have done from the beginning, but some have 31
