How to: Select a Range of Dates in the Windows Forms MonthCalendar Control

An important feature of the Windows Forms MonthCalendar control is that the user can select a range of dates. This feature is an improvement over the date-selection feature of the DateTimePicker control, which only enables the user to select a single date/time value. You can set a range of dates or get a selection range set by the user by using properties of the MonthCalendar control. The following code example demonstrates how to set a selection range.

To select a range of dates

  • Create DateTime objects that represent the first and last dates in a range.

    Dim projectStart As Date = New DateTime(2001, 2, 13)
    Dim projectEnd As Date = New DateTime(2001, 2, 28)
