Examples

The following example creates a DatePicker that displays the dates in August 2009 and specifies that each Saturday and Sunday is not selectable. The DatePicker handles the DateValidationError event. If the user enters a date that is not selectable, the example displays a message. If the user enters text that is not a valid date, an exception is thrown.

DatePicker datePickerWithBlackoutDates = new DatePicker();

datePickerWithBlackoutDates.DisplayDateStart = new DateTime(2009, 8, 1);
datePickerWithBlackoutDates.DisplayDateEnd = new DateTime(2009, 8, 31);
datePickerWithBlackoutDates.SelectedDate = new DateTime(2009, 8, 10);

datePickerWithBlackoutDates.BlackoutDates.Add(
    new CalendarDateRange(new DateTime(2009, 8, 1), new DateTime(2009, 8, 2)));
datePickerWithBlackoutDates.BlackoutDates.Add(
    new CalendarDateRange(new DateTime(2009, 8, 8), new DateTime(2009, 8, 9)));
datePickerWithBlackoutDates.BlackoutDates.Add(
    new CalendarDateRange(new DateTime(2009, 8, 15), new DateTime(2009, 8, 16)));
datePickerWithBlackoutDates.BlackoutDates.Add(
    new CalendarDateRange(new DateTime(2009, 8, 22), new DateTime(2009, 8, 23)));
datePickerWithBlackoutDates.BlackoutDates.Add(

Remarks

The DatePicker.DateValidationError event occurs when DatePicker.Text is set to a value that cannot be interpreted as a date or when the date cannot be selected. You can subscribe to this event and specify whether an exception is raised by setting the ThrowException property. If DatePickerDateValidationErrorEventArgs.ThrowException is true, one of the following exceptions is raised:

Exception type Condition
FormatException The text entered cannot be parsed to a valid date, and the exception is not suppressed.
ArgumentOutOfRangeException The text entered parses to a date that is not selectable.

If DatePickerDateValidationErrorEventArgs.ThrowException is false, the application continues execution as usual.
