If then else for Date Time Picker Question

If then else for Date Time Picker Question

If then else for Date Time Picker Question

So I am trying to make an IF statement that if the date logic stays as default (1/1/1900) then I want my program to do one thing, else do something else.


If StaffEnd_DT.Value.Equals("1/1/2000 12:00:00 AM") Or StaffEnd_DT.Value.Equals("1/1/1900 12:00:00 AM") Then 

When I try to debug, it looks like it just blows through this logic. I have tried without the timestamp, longtime, shorttime..etc. I am at a lost on how to tell my program to understand the default date.

Dim jan012000 As New DateTime(2000, 1, 1)
        Dim jan011900 As New DateTime(1900, 1, 1)

       If StaffEnd_DT.Value.Equals(jan012000) Or StaffEnd_DT.Value.Equals(jan011900) Then
