The WPF DateTimePicker (DatePicker) control provides a simple and intuitive interface for picking DateTime. In other words, users can quickly navigate and select dates using months, years, and decades of calendar. The DateTimePicker comprises text box and a dropdown with calendar and clock to pick or edit a date with time. It supports watermark, minimum and maximum dates, date format, nullable, date validation, and much more. In addition, it supports month and year selection by disabling date selection.

No, our 100 WPF controls, including DateTimePicker, are not sold individually, only as a single package. However, we have competitively priced the product so it only costs a little bit more than what some other vendors charge for their DateTimePicker alone. We have also found that, in our experience, our customers usually start off using one of our products and then expand to several products quickly, so we felt it was best to offer all 100 WPF controls for a flat fee of $995/developer. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team today to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.

No, this is a commercial product and requires a paid license. However, a free community license is also available for companies and individuals whose organizations have less than $1 million USD in annual gross revenue and five or fewer developers.

A good place to start would be our comprehensive getting started documentation.

I am really thankful for the wonderful set of controls for WPF. I was able to deliver things on time and could focus on core business logic rather than control development.
