<object property="enumerationMemberName" .../>

Member nameDescription
DecadeThe Calendar displays a decade at a time.
MonthThe Calendar displays a month at a time.
YearThe Calendar displays a year at a time.

A Calendar can display a month, a year, or a decade at a time. 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.

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

End Class
