    I'm using theme Office2007Blue with the datetimepicker. The forecolor of the the date text is greyish. I'd like to have it black. Had a look in the theme manager but can't find the setting for this.

    Hello Lovsten,

    Currently this is not possible with this version of RadDateTimePicker as the editing text box is disabled. Changing its fore color doesn't affect its appearance.

    This control is currently part of RadCalendar, but it will be officially released as a stand alone control in Q3 of RadControls for WinForms. With the Q3 release we will provide masked edit functionality as well, and then you will be able to change the fore color of the text box as it would be editable.

    If you need more assistance please write back.

    OK. You call it a DateTimePicker. How do I set it up so the user can change the time as well as the date?

    Hi Lovsten,

    The Time value could be set only by using the API of the control.

    RadDateTimePicker
    has a property named Value which is of type DateTime. By default it is shown in the text box area when you set the format property of RadDateTimePicker to time.

    The user would be able to change the time using the mask edit functionality which would be included in the official version of the control.

    If you have more questions, please write back.

    Hello Lovsten,

    Indeed, you are right. RadDateTimePicker is not a fully functional date time picker as the standard MS one. It was not officially introduced with the Q2 release as it is still in active development. We plan to have it fully functional with the Q3 release. You could look at the date time picker as being a part of RadCalendar as the bread crumb is part of the RadTreeView at the moment.

    If you are interested you could take a look at the following blog post announcing the date time picker to the telerik community -

    Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any additional questions.
