DateTimePicker - Selecting year

Posted 10 years ago by Avatar Matt

Is is possible to include year up/down selector in the datetimepicker like Xceed uses in their WPF datetimepicker?

Yes, you could probably actually template it in right now to do that if you'd like.

But we also have a TODO item to add this ourselves once we get to the next round of updates to this control. Thanks for the suggestion!

Any update on this where this is priority wise? If its low and far off, I'll make some other arrangments, however if its coming soon then I'll hold off, just need to know before I have an attempt at templating this...

Hi Matt,

Right now, one of our devs is most of the way through an unannounced control. Once he finishes that, he will probably start working on this sort of thing along with some other related controls like masked editors in preparation for yet another unannounced product. :)

But in regards to your request, I've seen calendars done two way. With the up/down buttons and with a popup that shows when you click the year and a number of years before and after available like a menu. Which sort do you (and anyone else reading this) prefer?

I prefer the Xceed datatimepicker style or Silverlight, vs the overlaying screen that ExtJS uses for year/month, but whatever method is choosen I'll be happy, its a critical function of any datetime picker for a LOB app.

Hi Matt,

v4.0 now has the year up/down buttons implemented as an option. This should provide the functionality you desire upon its release.

We also are going to be probably making a more robust DateTimePicker in a future editors package post-v4.0.

This feature is very cool, but is there any way to change where those buttons appears? We'd like to have double-arrows on the far left and right (outside of the month selector).

This can be done but would require you to retemplate the MonthCalendarTitle control however you need.

Fyi, this issue has been addressed by the MonthCalendar control in our Editors for WPF product, which reproduces the Vista style calendar.
