Silverlight Calendar Control

The Silverlight Calendar control is great for scenarios where date selection by an end user is needed.  Here we have a simple example which shows how to display the calendar in XAML and how to respond to date changes in C#.

How to Use the Calendar Control

To use it on your Silverlight page:

<UserControl x:Class="Calendar.Page"
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/client/2007"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
    xmlns:liquid="clr-namespace:Liquid;assembly=Liquid"
    xmlns:extended="clr-namespace:System.Windows.Controls;assembly=System.Windows.Controls"
    Width="400" Height="300">
    <Canvas>
        <extended:Calendar x:Name="testCal" Canvas.Top="10" Canvas.Left="10" />
    </Canvas>
</UserControl>

In your Silverlight C# code behind file you can refer to your calendar using testCal.  The Calendar has a SelectedDate property which allows you to set or read the currently selected date.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Windows;
using System.Windows.Controls;
using System.Windows.Documents;
using System.Windows.Input;
using System.Windows.Media;
using System.Windows.Media.Animation;
using System.Windows.Shapes;

namespace Calendar
{
    public partial class Page : UserControl
    {
        public Page()
        {
            InitializeComponent();

            testCal.SelectedDatesChanged += new EventHandler<SelectionChangedEventArgs>(testCal_SelectedDatesChanged);
        }

        void testCal_SelectedDatesChanged(object sender, SelectionChangedEventArgs e)
        {
            DateTime selectedDate = testCal.SelectedDate.Value;
        }
    }
}


The Calendar exposes a click event which is fired (named SelectedDateChanged) when a day is clicked on, you can attach an event handler to this to read the date value.
