ASP.NET Calendar - add 4 years.

I have a page that is used to add records to a Database. I have 2 Calendars - one for the purchase date and one for the retirement date of the equipment, which is 4 years from the purchase date by default, but can be manually changed if required.
So, I have the page and the two calendars, but I can't figure out how to get Calendar2 to Display a date 4 years in the future. Even 4 years from "DateTime.Today" would be fine!

This kind of question has probably been asked before, but I can't seem to find it. Sorry!

I don't think

Calender1.SelectedDate=DateTime.Today.AddYears(4);

on its own will work. Try

Calender1.SelectedDate=DateTime.Today.AddYears(4)
Calender1.VisibleDate=DateTime.Today.AddYears(4)

Apologies - I'm still fudging(?) my way around ASP.NET. Trying to sprint before I can walk, I think...
