<font size="2" color="#0000ff">



my:DatePicker Height="25" Margin="218.543,350,0,0" Name="datePickerstartdate" VerticalAlignment="Top" xmlns:my="" Text="Show this" SelectedDateChanged="datePickerstartdate_SelectedDateChanged" LostFocus="datePickerstartdate_LostFocus" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Width

="115" />


private void datePickerstartdate_SelectedDateChanged(object sender, SelectionChangedEventArgs e)

            isthereanychange = true;   //private variable        

private void datePickerstartdate_LostFocus(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)

private void checkdatePickerstartdate()
            TextBlock popupText = new TextBlock();
            popupText.Background = Brushes.LightBlue;
            popupText.Foreground = Brushes.Red;
            if (datePickerstartdate.SelectedDate == null)
                popupText.Text = "Start Date is required!";
                popupshowerror.PlacementTarget = datePickerstartdate;
                popupshowerror.Child = popupText;
                popupshowerror.IsOpen = true;
                popupshowerror.StaysOpen = true;               
                btncreate.IsEnabled = false;
                Isthereproblem = true;

when I click the calender, it gives the "System.StackOverflowException was unhandled".

I traced the error because it caused the infinite loop due to datePickerstartdate.Focus() step.  It seems whenever this step causes to call datePickerstartdate_LostFocus function again.

If I comment this step datePickerstartdate.Focus(), no error again. I think this is bug. Can anyone explain this?

Thanks in advance!
