Property Value

Type: System.Nullable(DateTime)
The first date that is available in the calendar. The default is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

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.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
<!-- 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"/>
