I would like to know if things have evolved since then.
The default raddatetimepicker isn't so appealing.
In my project, the user may enter a date of birth (the date is not mandatory so nullvalue is a good thing). I tried to replace microsoft's datetimepicker by a raddatetimepicker but i couldn't display the todaybutton, nor the clearbutton nor the ability to navigate the years (as you would normally do when entering a birth date).
I haven't tried by code, I used some of the properties accessed via the smarttag
raddatetimepickerelement/calendar/showfooter set to true, headernavigationmode set to zoom
but whatever I do nothing changes. The control stays exactly the same.
What I am doing wrong?
By default, this control should have at least the same amount of functionalities DateTimePicker has. I believe, this would improve the learning curve.
