public enum DatePickerFormat
<object property="enumerationMemberName" .../>

Member nameDescription
LongSpecifies that the date should be displayed by using unabbreviated days of the week and month names. This value displays a string that is equal to the string that is returned by the DateTime.ToLongDateString method.

DatePicker datePickerFor2009 = new DatePicker();
datePickerFor2009.SelectedDate = new DateTime(2009, 3, 23);
datePickerFor2009.DisplayDateStart = new DateTime(2009, 1, 1);
datePickerFor2009.DisplayDateEnd = new DateTime(2009, 12, 31);
datePickerFor2009.SelectedDateFormat = DatePickerFormat.Long;
datePickerFor2009.FirstDayOfWeek = DayOfWeek.Monday;

// root is a Panel that is defined elsewhere.
root.Children.Add(datePickerFor2009);
<!-- A DatePicker that has March 23, 2009 selected and 
           displays the Long date format. -->
<DatePicker SelectedDateFormat="Long" SelectedDate="3/23/09"
                  DisplayDateStart="1/01/09" DisplayDateEnd="12/31/09"
