Selection Modes

By default, the Calendar is in single selection mode.

To enable its multiple selection mode, set the selection input property to multiple.

The multiple selection mode includes the following key operations:

  • Multiple selection—The Ctrl key handles the selection of dates.
  • Range selection—The Shift key handles the selection of date ranges.
  • Week selection—A click on the week number cell handles the range selection for a specific week.

The Ctrl key allows the user to perform the following multiple selection actions:

  • Pressing Ctrl + mouse click (or Enter) on a date will mark the date as selected and other previously selected dates will remain selected as well.
  • Selecting a date without using the Ctrl key will deselect all previously selected dates (including previously selected dates from other views or months) and will select the date of the clicked cell.
  • Selecting a date that is already selected while holding the Ctrl key will remove the date from the selection.

The Shift key allows the user to select a range of dates in the same month or between different months in the following ways:

  • Shift + mouse click (or Enter) will select all dates between the last one selected and the clicked cell.
  • Shift + mouse click (or Enter) when no previous selection was made will select the date of the clicked cell.

When the user clicks a specific week number, the Calendar will select the entire week. This scenario is regarded as a special case of range selection—starting from the first day of the week, the action will select all dates to the end of the week.
