    Hello

    I have added a telerik dtp to a 'chunk' in a Ribbonbar as follows in the onLoad event of a form.  The purpose is to change the view of a calendar when the value in the dtp is changed.  The code below accomplishes this task as expected:

    Dim dtPicker As New RadDateTimePicker
    dtPicker.ThemeName = "Office2007Blue"
     
    AddHandler dtPicker.ValueChanged, AddressOf pickerValueChanged
     
    Dim hostItem As New Telerik.WinControls.RadHostItem(dtPicker)
    hostItem.MinSize = New System.Drawing.Size(150, 50)
    Me.chunkJumpTo.Items.Add(hostItem)
    Me.chunkJumpTo.Items(0).Name = "ggPicker"

    The handler that I added is as follows:

    Private Sub pickerValueChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
     
            Dim dtp As RadDateTimePicker = sender
            selectedDate = dtp.Value
     
            Select Case Me.Calendar1.CurrentView
                Case WinForms.CalendarView.WeekRange
     
                    viewMonth()
                    Me.Calendar1.Selection.Set(selectedDate)
                     
                Case WinForms.CalendarView.Timetable
                    If Calendar1.TimetableSettings.VisibleColumns > 1 Then
                        viewWeek()
                        Me.Calendar1.Selection.Set(selectedDate)
                    Else
                        viewDay()
                    End If
     
            End Select
     
            setCurrentMonth()
     
     
        End Sub


    However, I would like to change the value of the dtp if a new date is clicked on the calendar itself - how can I reference the dtp in the Ribbonbar and change the value that is displayed?

    I found some code from another post - I can find the dtp by doing this (I think) but have not been successful in updating the value...

     For Each ct As RadItem In Me.chunkJumpTo.Items
                If ct.Name = "ggPicker" Then
    ...CHANGE VALUE HERE...
                End If
     Next


    QUESTION 2:

    I have several RadImageButtonElements in my Ribbonbar.  I have set the ImageHovered property on several buttons but the new image is not displayed on hover of the button - are there issues with this property? Can you please demonstrate how to display a second image on hover and then revert to this original?

    Thank you

    Brian

    Hello Brian,

    Thank you for writing.

    Actually, iterating through group's items collection is the right way to access your date-time picker. However, you have to look for a host item instead of trying to directly get a RadDateTimePicker control. Please consider the following code as an example:
    For Each item As RadItem In radRibbonBarGroup2.Items
        If TypeOf item Is RadHostItem Then
            Dim dtp As RadDateTimePicker = DirectCast(DirectCast(item, RadHostItem).HostedControl, RadDateTimePicker)
            dtp.Value = New DateTime(2011, 1, 1)
        End If
    Next

    As to your second question, it looks like ImageHovered property does not work as expected. We will address this in one of the future releases. For the time being, you can use MouseEnter and MouseLeave events to change the image. I have updated your Telerik points for bringing this issue to our attention.

    Let me know if you have any additional questions.

    All the best,
