How to: Read Selected Dates in the Calendar Web Server Control

The first example displays the currently selected day. The second example displays all selected dates, which might be a single day, a week, or a month.


' Example 1
Label1.Text = Calendar1.SelectedDate.ToShortDateString()

' Example 2
Dim s As String = ""
Dim d As DateTime
For Each d In Calendar1.SelectedDates
    s &= "<br />" & d.ToShortDateString()
Label1.Text = s

Compiling the Code

This example requires:

  • A Web Forms page.

  • A Calendar control named Calendar1.

  • A Label control named Label1.

Robust Programming

If only one day is selected, the SelectedDates property will get just one date. If a week or a month is selected, the SelectedDate property will get the first date from that collection.
