  • If I understand your requirement correctly here is my xaml

                <RowDefinition Height="40"/>
                <RowDefinition Height="40"/>
                <RowDefinition Height="40"/>
                <RowDefinition />
            <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">
                <TextBlock Text="Start Date : " VerticalAlignment="Center"/>
            <sdk:DatePicker  Width="130" Height="25" x:Name="dtpStartDate"/>
            <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal" Grid.Row="1">
                <TextBlock Text="End Date : " VerticalAlignment="Center"/>
                <sdk:DatePicker  Width="130" Height="25" x:Name="dtpEndDate" />
            <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal" Grid.Row="2">
                <TextBlock Text="Output : " VerticalAlignment="Center"/>
                <TextBlock  VerticalAlignment="Center">
                    <Run Text="{Binding SelectedDate, ElementName=dtpStartDate,StringFormat='dd/MM/yyyy'}"/>
                    <Run Text=" And "/>
                    <Run Text="{Binding SelectedDate, ElementName=dtpEndDate,StringFormat='dd/MM/yyyy'}"/>

    here I have bind the textblock with the start and end date.

    Hope that will help.

    let me know if you have any question

  • You can element bind the TextBlock with the DatePicker control.  If you want the date to render in a particular format, you can use XAML StringFormat or a IValueConverter converter.
