outdate = uisetdate2 : Opens an interactive date selection GUI. This
function suspends execution until date selection is complete or
cancelled. Returns a 1-by-3 partial date vector 'outdate' containing
the selected year, month, and day as its respective elements.
outdate = uisetdate2(<Property>, <Value>, ...): Allows the user to
specify property/value pairs
'MIN_YEAR', <1>: The minimum selectable year is specified. It should
not be less than 1.

'MAX_YEAR', <9999>: The maximum selectable year is specified. It should
not be greater than 9999, and should always be greater than or equal to

'StartingDate', <[]>: The starting date can be specified as a
date vector (or a partial date vector of three elements containing
year, month, and day). This date will be set when the interface is
launched. If the year corresponding to this StartingDate is outside the
range [MIN_YEAR, MAX_YEAR] then the year field of the date
vector is limited to MIN_YEAR or MAX_YEAR, as the case may be. It is
also possible to specify N date vectors to be selected as an N-by-3
(partial date vector) or N-by-6 (full date vector) matrix.

'MULTI_SELECT', <false>: If set to true, the user can select multiple
dates interactively. The return value is then an N-by-3 matrix of
partial date vectors where N is the number of dates selected.
