    Hi ,

      I am using radDatetImepIcker as a seperate control .(Not inline with grid or anything else). I need to set date/time in picker by default based on my server time zone like ‘DD.MM.YYYY HH24:MI:SS TZR’.


    Please advice as soon as earlier.

    THanks,
    Priya

    Hello Kavi,

    The RadDateTimePicker (and the DateInput itself) does not manage the timezones.
    So you could use format expression like: "dd.MM.yyyy hh:mm:ss".
    When you get the SelectedDate you will get a DateTime object parsed with unspecified time zone. You could later convert the time in different timezone manually if you need.

    Please also note that the DateTime object itself does not store information about the timezone. For more information check these resources:
