NepaliDateTime Picker

Hi everyone
I have been trying to develop a tool in C# called NepaliDateTime Picker similar to builtin DateTime Picker but I am not finding any scientific rules of the Bikram Sambat calender.I am manually entering the dates but it's not an effective way as I could only get dates upto 2072 or something like that, So does anyone have idea?????????

I also did similar research long time back. So far the only algorithm that I was able to find out was some kind of database based.
And this is what I did to optimize the data based nepali date conversion

I will be interested to know if anyone had developed Nepali date conversion without data source.

Here is another Nepali date conversion algorithm but it is also database based.

I think we should list all the Nepali date conversion algorithms here.

Here is another one but even this one seems to be database based.

I have also done some research in this area and so far concluded that Nepali-English date conversion can not be done without database...
I have also made a nepali date converter and picker in c#... hope the link below could be of some help....

Here is another Nepali Datetime converter using some data source.

Is there really any math behind Nepali date and calendar??? I am too curious to know if there is any valid math or algorithm to calculate Nepali date.
