DatePicker Styles and Templates

Silverlight

This topic describes the styles and templates for the DatePicker control. You can modify the default ControlTemplate to give the control a unique appearance. For more information, see Customizing the Appearance of an Existing Control by Using a ControlTemplate.

The following table lists the named parts for the DatePicker control.

DatePicker Part

Type

Description

Root

Grid

The root of the control.

Button

Button

The button that opens and closes the Calendar.

TextBox

DatePickerTextBox

The text box that allows you to input a date.

Popup

Popup

The popup for the DatePicker control.

The following table lists the visual states for the DatePicker control.

DatePicker VisualState Name

VisualStateGroup Name

Description

Normal

CommonStates

The default state.

Disabled

CommonStates

The state that is triggered when the DatePicker is disabled.

Valid

ValidationStates

The DatePicker control is valid.

InvalidFocused

ValidationStates

The DatePicker control is not valid and has focus.

InvalidUnfocused

ValidationStates

The DatePicker control is not valid and does not have focus.

The following table lists the Style properties of the DatePicker control. You must set the TargetType property when you create a Style.

Property Name

Target Type

Description

CalendarStyle

Calendar

The style applied to the calendar that displays the date.

The following example shows how to add a custom style as a StaticResource. For more information, see Customizing the Appearance of an Existing Control by Using a ControlTemplate. In this example, the StaticResource refers to an x:Key attribute value that you must add to the Style element when you modify it for your project.


<DatePicker x:Name="datePicker1"
    Style="{StaticResource newDatePickerStyle}" />


The following shows the XML namespace mappings that you have to specify when you work with styles and templates.

<!-- XML Namespace mappings. -->
xmlns:vsm="clr-namespace:System.Windows;assembly=System.Windows"
xmlns:controls="clr-namespace:System.Windows.Controls;assembly=System.Windows.Controls"
Important noteImportant Note:

The default templates for controls in Silverlight 4 still use the Silverlight 3-style prefixes, such as controls: and data: instead of sdk:. This is because the default control templates support Silverlight 3 and Silverlight 4 simultaneously. For more information, see Prefixes and Mappings for Silverlight Libraries.

NoteNote:

The default templates still specify the vsm: XML namespace mapping for the VisualStateManager element for legacy reasons. You can however, use the VisualStateManager element without specifying the vsm: mapping.

The following XAML shows the default styles and templates for the DatePicker control.
