Property Value

A System.DateTime object that contains the date represented by an instance of this class. This allows you to programmatically control the appearance or behavior of the day, based on this value.

Use the Date property to programmatically determine the date represented by an instance of this class.

The following example demonstrates how to use the Date property to compare the date being rendered in the DayRender event with today's date. If the date is today's date, it is displayed in a yellow cell with red text on the Calendar control.
