Could you please be more specific where exactly you want to change the number of the year?
Initially, this can be done be re-templating the RadCalendar control, which is part of the DatePicker. To restrict the visible dates you can set the DisplayDateStart
properties of the DatePicker.
You can edit the template of the DatePicker very easy with Expression Blend. Just drop a DatePicker control on the design surface, right-click it and choose from the menu Edit Template->Edit a Copy
. Then Blend will generate all the needed resource. Find the Button x:Name="Header"
and navigate to its style: CalendarHeaderButton
. There you will find the two TextBlocks which display the text. Through a converter you can change the 2011 number to "Current" and 2012 to "Next".
Hope this helps.
