After a bit of toil I have the DatePicker and Calendar WPF control styles done for Material Design in XAML Toolkit. I hope you guys like it!
Please note that the behaviour is not quite identical to that which you might see on Android. These are templates for the existing WPF DatePicker and Calendar primitive controls, and thus, some of the behaviour around month/year selection is driven by the nature of those controls. There is no modal dialog, as I don’t want these templates to get confused with any requirement/API used to manage dialogs in WPF.
I must say that I believe that it is testament to the original design of WPF/XAML – which is now a mature technology – that I could slot these styles in pretty much seamlessly for a control whose code base is around 8 years old. Note that some extra code has gone in to the Material Design Toolkit, bit this is wrapped inside the new templates and thus if you consume these templates you need never concern yourself with it.
