#1,034 – Limiting the Range of Selectable Dates in a Calendar

The Calendar control allows selecting one or more dates.  By default, the user is allowed to select dates within the range DateTime.MinValue (1/1/0001) to DateTime.MaxValue (12/31/9999).

If you want to restrict the user to dates within a more reasonable range, you can set the DisplayDateStart and DisplayDateEnd properties.  The Calendar will then be limited to dates within that range.

        <Label Content="Pick your favorite day from the 1980s:"/>
        <Calendar DisplayDateStart="1/1/1980"


These properties also work in the DatePicker control, to limit the dates that can be selected.
