Property Value

The starting DateTime value of the range.

The following example creates a SelectionRange object, sets its Start and End properties, and assigns the SelectionRange object to the SelectionRange property of the MonthCalendar control. When the DateChanged event is raised, the Start and End property values are displayed in the text boxes. This example assumes that you have a Form with two TextBox controls, a Button, and a MonthCalendar control.

private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
   // Create a SelectionRange object and set its Start and End properties.
   SelectionRange sr = new SelectionRange();
   sr.Start = DateTime.Parse(this.textBox1.Text);
   sr.End = DateTime.Parse(this.textBox2.Text);
   /* Assign the SelectionRange object to the 
      SelectionRange property of the MonthCalendar control. */
   this.monthCalendar1.SelectionRange = sr;
}

private void monthCalendar1_DateChanged(object sender, DateRangeEventArgs e)
{
   /* Display the Start and End property values of 
      the SelectionRange object in the text boxes. */
   this.textBox1.Text = 
     monthCalendar1.SelectionRange.Start.Date.ToShortDateString();
   this.textBox2.Text = 
     monthCalendar1.SelectionRange.End.Date.ToShortDateString();
}

private void button1_Click(Object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    // Create a SelectionRange object and set its Start and End properties.
    SelectionRange sr = new SelectionRange();
    sr.set_Start(DateTime.Parse(this.textBox1.get_Text()));
    sr.set_End(DateTime.Parse(this.textBox2.get_Text()));

    /* Assign the SelectionRange object to the 
       SelectionRange property of the MonthCalendar control. */
    this.monthCalendar1.set_SelectionRange(sr);
} //button1_Click

private void monthCalendar1_DateChanged(Object sender, DateRangeEventArgs e)
{
    /* Display the Start and End property values of 
       the SelectionRange object in the text boxes. */
    this.textBox1.set_Text(monthCalendar1.get_SelectionRange().get_Start().
        get_Date().ToShortDateString());
    this.textBox2.set_Text(monthCalendar1.get_SelectionRange().get_End().
        get_Date().ToShortDateString());
} //monthCalendar1_DateChanged
