The DatePicker enables you to set the initial view it renders and define the navigation depth of the views.
The Calendar view supports the following predefined views:
Month—Shows the days of the month.
Year—Shows the months of the year.
Decade—Shows the years of the decade.
Century—Shows the decades of the century.
The following example demonstrates how to create a DatePicker that allows the user to select a month.
@(Html.Kendo().DatePicker() .Name("datepicker") .Start(CalendarView.Year) .Depth(CalendarView.Year) )
