Property Value

A value that indicates what length of time the Calendar should display.


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.

Calendar yearCalendar = new Calendar();
yearCalendar.DisplayMode = CalendarMode.Year;
yearCalendar.DisplayModeChanged +=
    new EventHandler<CalendarModeChangedEventArgs>(Calendar_DisplayModeChanged);

// root is a Panel that is defined elswhere.
Dim yearCalendar As New Calendar()
yearCalendar.DisplayMode = CalendarMode.Year
AddHandler yearCalendar.DisplayModeChanged, AddressOf Calendar_DisplayModeChanged

' root is a Panel that is defined elswhere. 
<Calendar DisplayMode="Year" DisplayModeChanged="Calendar_DisplayModeChanged" />
private void Calendar_DisplayModeChanged(object sender,
                                         CalendarModeChangedEventArgs e)
    Calendar calObj = sender as Calendar;

    calObj.DisplayMode = CalendarMode.Year;
    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)
    End Sub

End Class
