Telerik UI for Windows Phone by Progress

Gets or sets the current date to display. This is a dependency property.

Namespace: Telerik.Windows.Controls
Assembly: Telerik.Windows.Controls.Input (in Telerik.Windows.Controls.Input.dll) Version: 2013.1.422.2040 (2013.1.0422.2040)


public DateTime DisplayDate { get; set; }
Visual Basic
Public Property DisplayDate As DateTime
Visual C++
property DateTime DisplayDate {
	DateTime get ();
	void set (DateTime value);


The DisplayDate property specifies the date to display in the RadCalendar. If no display date was set, then the SelectedValue is used. Alternatively, if no date is selected then DateTime.Today is used.

Similarly to the other date properties of the Calendar, the time part of the DateTime object is not only ignored but set to 00:00:00 as well. See SelectedValue for an example and more infromation on that behaviour.

The DisplayDateStart and DisplayDateEnd properties defined a range within which the DisplayDate can be set, i.e. a range within which the user can navigate. If you try to set a DisplayDate outside the defined range an ArgumentOutOfRangeException would be thrown. Similarly, setting a display range that excludes the current DisplayDate would throw an exception.

Please note that unlike the other date properties DisplayDate cannot be set to null.
