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)
