Calendar Views in JavaScript (ES5) Calendar control

The Calendar has the following predefined views that provide a flexible way to navigate back and forth when selecting dates.

View Description
month (default) Displays the days in a month.
year Displays the months in a year.
decade Displays the years in a decade.

When view is defined to the start property of the Calendar, it allows you to set the initial view on rendering.

The following example demonstrates how to set the year as the start view of the Calendar.

View restriction

Calendar view navigation can be restricted by defining the start and depth property that allows you to select the date from that view.

By defining the start and depth property with the different view, drill- down and drill-up views navigation can be limited to the user. Calendar views will be drill-down up to the view which is set in depth property and drill-up up to the view which is set in start property.

The following example displays the Calendar in decade view, and allows you to select a date in month view.

Depth view should always be smaller than the start view. If the views are the same, then the Calendar view remains unchanged.
