DateTimePicker Close Calendar

When i select a date, how can i close the calendar automatically? now the calendar stays open and have to click some where on the form.

Currently this is not supported. As a workaround you can create a handler for the ValueChanged event and set the IsOpen property to false to close it.

what i have done is, converted the control to template control (for my requirement i had to convert). now added the event trigger 

<Calendar x:Name="Part_Calendar" BorderThickness="0" DisplayDate="2011-08-23" >

<EventTrigger RoutedEvent="Calendar.SelectedDatesChanged">



<BooleanAnimationUsingKeyFrames Storyboard.TargetName="PART_Popup" Storyboard.TargetProperty="(Popup.IsOpen)"> 

 <DiscreteBooleanKeyFrame KeyTime="00:00:00" Value="False"/>                         






"PART_Popup" is the name given to popup. Now the problem i face is when i click on ToggleButton, Popup is not opening up.

I'm sorry, but I cannot support modifications made to the code base as there can be numerous factors that contirbute to your issues.  All I can do is suggest you look at the source code and make sure you have all the bindings correctly setup.

Is it fixed with new version of WPF Extended toolkit?  I had to implement the ValueChanged to close the calendar.
