Calendar Control Date Methods

Author: DevASP Team

In this article I will explain you about the calendar control methods specifically for displaying date/day of selected date of calendar control.

To begin with this article drop two controls on your aspx page and these controls are label control and our main calendar control. When you drop calendar control two properties are by default set the “ID” and “runat”. Now what you have to do is set “SelectionMode=DayWeakMonth” and onSelectionChange event and you method which will fire when this event occurs. Finally your aspx code will be look like as follows:




 <asp:Calendar ID="Calendar1" runat="server" SelectionMode="DayWeekMonth"  OnSelectionChanged="my_date_change"  >asp:Calendar>

  <br /><br />


 <asp:Label ID="my_selected_date" runat="server">asp:Label>



And code for the method that will fire when event changed is as follows:

Sub my_date_change(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal args As System.EventArgs)


    Dim i As Integer


    For i = 0 To Calendar1.SelectedDates.Count - 1

        my_selected_date.Text = my_selected_date.Text & "
& Calendar1.SelectedDates(i).Date



End Sub

Above method will display the selected date in a way that it concatenates with the previously displayed date. Now if you want to display the selected day number of month the only change you need to do is set:  




Now if you want to read the day with respect to weak change the Day method with:




Similarly you can display it with respect to year:




And finally if you want to display month number you can do so by using:
