The following example creates CalendarDateRange objects to specify which dates in a Calendar cannot be selected.

' Create a Calendar that displays dates through 
' Januarary 31, 2009 and has dates that are not selectable. 
Dim calendarWithBlackoutDates As New Calendar()
calendarWithBlackoutDates.IsTodayHighlighted = False
calendarWithBlackoutDates.DisplayDate = New DateTime(2009, 1, 1)
calendarWithBlackoutDates.DisplayDateEnd = New DateTime(2009, 1, 31)
calendarWithBlackoutDates.SelectionMode = CalendarSelectionMode.MultipleRange

' Add the dates that are not selectable. 
calendarWithBlackoutDates.BlackoutDates.Add(New CalendarDateRange(New DateTime(2009, 1, 2), New DateTime(2009, 1, 4)))
calendarWithBlackoutDates.BlackoutDates.Add(New CalendarDateRange(New DateTime(2009, 1, 9)))
calendarWithBlackoutDates.BlackoutDates.Add(New CalendarDateRange(New DateTime(2009, 1, 16)))
calendarWithBlackoutDates.BlackoutDates.Add(New CalendarDateRange(New DateTime(2009, 1, 23), New DateTime(2009, 1, 25)))
calendarWithBlackoutDates.BlackoutDates.Add(New CalendarDateRange(New DateTime(2009, 1, 30)))

' Add the selected dates. 
calendarWithBlackoutDates.SelectedDates.Add(New DateTime(2009, 1, 5))
calendarWithBlackoutDates.SelectedDates.AddRange(New DateTime(2009, 1, 12), New DateTime(2009, 1, 15))
calendarWithBlackoutDates.SelectedDates.Add(New DateTime(2009, 1, 27))

' root is a Panel that is defined elswhere. 
root.Children.Add(calendarWithBlackoutDates)
