You can use
1. MaskedTextBox[^]
or
2. DateTimePicker.CustomFormat Property[^] for formatting the textbox.

For those formats, please see:

However, I'm not sure writing date/time in a text box is a good idea. Why? Having the users to type it can drive them crazy, and validation of the result, too. Isn't the DateTimePicker control much better? Please see:
