A Calendar can display a month, a year, or a decade. The following table lists how the user navigates to each mode.

DisplayMode

Action

Month

To navigate to Year mode, click the month heading.

Year

To navigate to Decade mode, click the year heading. To navigate to Month mode, click one of the displayed months.

Decade

To navigate to Year mode, click one of the displayed years.

The following example creates a calendar that displays the months in a year and handles the DisplayModeChanged event so that when the user clicks on a month or the year, the calendar does not change its DisplayMode.

Calendar yearCalendar = new Calendar();
yearCalendar.DisplayMode = CalendarMode.Year;
yearCalendar.DisplayModeChanged +=
    new EventHandler<CalendarModeChangedEventArgs>(Calendar_DisplayModeChanged);

// root is a Panel that is defined elswhere.
root.Children.Add(yearCalendar);
<Calendar DisplayMode="Year" DisplayModeChanged="Calendar_DisplayModeChanged" />
private void Calendar_DisplayModeChanged(object sender,
                                         CalendarModeChangedEventArgs e)
{
    Calendar calObj = sender as Calendar;

    calObj.DisplayMode = CalendarMode.Year;
}
