Long

Specifies that the date should be displayed by using unabbreviated days of the week and month names. This value displays a string that is equal to the string that is returned by the DateTimeToLongDateString method.

Short

Specifies that the date should be displayed by using abbreviated days of the week and month names. This value displays a string that is equal to the string that is returned by the DateTimeToShortDateString method.

The following example creates a DatePicker that displays the date by using unabbreviated days of the week and month names.

DatePicker datePickerFor2009 = new DatePicker();
datePickerFor2009.SelectedDate = new DateTime(2009, 3, 23);
datePickerFor2009.DisplayDateStart = new DateTime(2009, 1, 1);
datePickerFor2009.DisplayDateEnd = new DateTime(2009, 12, 31);
datePickerFor2009.SelectedDateFormat = DatePickerFormat.Long;
datePickerFor2009.FirstDayOfWeek = DayOfWeek.Monday;

// root is a Panel that is defined elsewhere.
root.Children.Add(datePickerFor2009);
Dim datePickerFor2009 As New DatePicker()
datePickerFor2009.SelectedDate = New DateTime(2009, 3, 23)
datePickerFor2009.DisplayDateStart = New DateTime(2009, 1, 1)
datePickerFor2009.DisplayDateEnd = New DateTime(2009, 12, 31)
datePickerFor2009.SelectedDateFormat = DatePickerFormat.[Long]
datePickerFor2009.FirstDayOfWeek = DayOfWeek.Monday

' root is a Panel that is defined elsewhere. 
root.Children.Add(datePickerFor2009)
<!-- A DatePicker that has March 23, 2009 selected and 
           displays the Long date format. -->
<DatePicker SelectedDateFormat="Long" SelectedDate="3/23/09"
                  DisplayDateStart="1/01/09" DisplayDateEnd="12/31/09" 
                  FirstDayOfWeek="Monday"/>
