Show empty DatePicker if value is null

    Question

  • Hi,

    My WindowsPhone App has an optional Date-Field. If no date is set I want to display an empty DatePicker and otherwise the picked Date. How can I do this?

    Thank you

    Bernd

  • You'll have to write your own datepicker to get this solution.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.

  • There's no such thing as a null date. Set it to today's date as the default.

  • Unfortunately this is no solution for me.

    If there is always a date visible, the user doesn't
    know if he still has to set the date or is it already set.
