Expandable Date Element for MonoTouch.Dialog

A while back, I asked if anyone else had done this:

UPDATE: My apologies to Kraig Spear - he was the one who originally provided the code. Sorry for mis-crediting it! I think I had some similar stuff from Gerry High around the same time.

I had few replies, and I think I got a (mostly) working version from Kraig Spear. Glenn Stephens promted me about it today, tho, and here's a Gist with the code. I use it Trip Wallet to edit the dates, tho I need to migrate it to my other apps, too.

And you use it like:

var tripStartElement = new StyledExpandableDateElement("Start", startDate, UIDatePickerMode.Date, root, section);
tripStartElement.ValueChanged += (DateTime newDate) =>
{
	tripDayCountElement.Value = FormatDayCount(tripStartElement.Value, tripEndElement.Value);
};
			
var tripEndElement = new StyledExpandableDateElement("End", endDate, UIDatePickerMode.Date, root, section);
tripEndElement.ValueChanged += (DateTime newDate) =>
{
	tripDayCountElement.Value = FormatDayCount(tripStartElement.Value, tripEndElement.Value);
};

It is, as far as I know, fully timezone aware (especially fun for a travel app when I live in GMT+13!), so the date you get back has al the right bits set.

Enjoy! Thanks Kraig for the code, and Glenn for the prompt to release it.
