    I'm doing MVC4 with razor.  I have tried using the datetimepicker with a grid and without and I get the same result.  I suspect it is my CSS but I'm not very proficient at doing CSS.   I use the kendo.common.min.css and kendo.default.min.css.  I've changed the theme slightly for width and fonts on the grid.  

    My editor template is as follows, though I have the same problem when I use datetimepicker outside of grid.

    @model  DateTime?

    @(Html.Kendo().DateTimePickerFor(m => m)
    .Min(new DateTime(2010, 1, 1, 10, 0, 0)) //Set min time of the datetimepicker
    .Max(new DateTime(2010, 1, 1, 20, 0, 0)) //Set min date of the datetimepicker
    .Value(DateTime.Now) //Set the value of the datetimepicker

    To use without the grid, i just included:
        <div id='to-do'>

    My datetimepicker shows up with the month on top, nothing as far as the days, and then a bunch of gray space to the right.  I'm at a loss as to what to try or what to furnish you.

    Hi Thomas,

    I am afraid that the provided information is not sufficient enough in order to determine where exactly the problem comes from. The provided configuration looks valid. As you said probably the problem comes from the changes in the CSS that you made, however you did not send the 'slightly changed' CSS code.

    Could you please try to replace the modified file with the original one and confirm that the issue is connected with the styling? As a general information, modifying the existing themes manually is not recommended. Did you tried using the theme builder tool?

    I put the default css back and it resolved the problem.   Changing the default css (especially when it is the min version) is not a good thing to do I've learned unless you really know what you are doing.
