Thats one of the moments i really don't like telerik controls.
I bind the value to a object that gives back NULL. Then you set the Element to 0. And then i have to reset it to null. In a dialogue made entirely by dynamic elements i cannot address directly because they have no name. In a dialogue where the elements can either be 0 or null. In MVVM, where i have to write a behavior class just to catch the Loaded Handler just to connect the field to its value AGAIN.
And then... after doing all this... the default EmptyText is BLACK while it is grey on other input fields like "radwatermarkinput". Now i have to change the emptycontenttemplate just to display it in the same color.
This is more work than doing it without telerik.
