Property Value

Type: System.Nullable<DateTime>
The first date that is available in the calendar. The default is null.

You can restrict the range of a Calendar by setting the DisplayDateStart and DisplayDateEnd properties. A user cannot scroll to or select dates outside of this range. If you set the SelectedDate property to a date that is before DisplayDateStart, DisplayDateStart is set to the same value as SelectedDate.

The following code sets up a Calendar with a particular range of displayable dates, and sets the currently selected and displayed date.

// Create a Calendar that displays 1/10/2009
// through 4/18/2009.
Calendar basicCalendar = new Calendar();
basicCalendar.DisplayDateStart = new DateTime(2009, 1, 10);
basicCalendar.DisplayDateEnd = new DateTime(2009, 4, 18);
basicCalendar.DisplayDate = new DateTime(2009, 3, 15);
basicCalendar.SelectedDate = new DateTime(2009, 2, 15);

// root is a Panel that is defined elswhere.
root.Children.Add(basicCalendar);
<!-- Create a Calendar that displays 1/10/2009
           through 4/18/2009. -->
<Calendar Margin="20" 
          SelectedDate="2/15/2009"
          DisplayDate="3/15/2009"
          DisplayDateStart="1/10/2009"
          DisplayDateEnd="4/18/2009"/>
