  • There are no built-in Calendar controls similar to the Calendar app. You can however use a DatePicker: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/hh465480.aspx if it helps. For a full fledged grid-style Calendar, you will have to implement something yourself.

  • When I said that you need to implement a grid, I meant to say that you will need to create a grid that has individual boxes (rows and columns) with date numbers in it and the click of which will handle selection of that date. The DatePicker control is a built-in control in HTML so I don't quite understand what you meant by "how I could bind between them"?

  • I mean after creating the grid shall I add put the date with each box individually or there are a method to link between this boxes and the DatePicker ???

    or if I want to use any jquery calendar will be easier ?

  • The DatePicker is a built-in control and the grid calendar you are implementing is independent of the DatePicker. Why do you want to link the custom calendar control with the DatePicker since you are duplicating functionality? The DatePicker lets you select a Date and the Calendar control you will implement will do the same, so I don't quite understand the point of linking them together.

    For jquery, I don't know. You can probably check the jquery forums if there are any built-in calendar controls.

  • I want to link to use dates in the DatePicker (i.e from 2000 to 2015)

    and create one box (grid item) and duplicate it to the end of the DatePicker date i.e 2015

    in addition to if I want to get specific date without going on the calendar just use the DatePicker.
