Selects entire weeks


If multiple dates can be selected simultaneously (see CalendarControlBase.SelectionMode), the SelectionBehavior property allows you to specify whether an end-user selects date ranges strictly from day to day being clicked (the default simple style), or the selection is automatically extended through the entire weeks containing those days (the Outlook-inspired style).
