I would be curious to know what class/object you are using exactly as DatePicker. I have written a sample app using the class System.Windows.Forms.DateTimePicker and have written a few lines to disactivate/activate the control and at no moment it was possible to interact with the control when the Enable property was set at false.
Perhaps the property you are looking for is Visible? It could be useful to know which Visual Studio version, which programming language and which version of our components you are using.
You could even paste a few lines of your code below, if needed.
