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.

Dim yearCalendar As New Calendar()
yearCalendar.DisplayMode = CalendarMode.Year
AddHandler yearCalendar.DisplayModeChanged, AddressOf Calendar_DisplayModeChanged

' root is a Panel that is defined elswhere. 
root.Children.Add(yearCalendar)
<Calendar DisplayMode="Year" DisplayModeChanged="Calendar_DisplayModeChanged" />
    Private Sub Calendar_DisplayModeChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As CalendarModeChangedEventArgs)
        Dim calObj As Calendar = TryCast(sender, Calendar)

        calObj.DisplayMode = CalendarMode.Year
    End Sub

    Private Sub calendar1_Loaded(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs)
        Dim cal = TryCast(sender, Calendar)
        cal.BlackoutDates.AddDatesInPast()
    End Sub
