    I've got a radgrid, with a filter setup like so

    myGrid = new RadGrid();
    myGrid.ID = "ClientBoundGrid";
    myGrid.Culture = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-GB");
    //...initialise rest of grid
    myGridRadFilter = new RadFilter
        ID = "myGridFilter",
        FilterContainerID = "ClientBoundGrid",
        Culture = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-GB")
    myGridRadFilter.ApplyExpressions += new EventHandler<RadFilterApplyExpressionsEventArgs>(myGrid_Filter_Apply);

    When I add a filter to the on a date column type, I'd expect the date to be in the format appropriate for the culture I use. (DD/MM/YYYY in this case). However when a date is either typed, or selected from the calender popup, it formats itself to the default en-US format (MM/DD/YYYY). Have I missed a step?

    On a slightly related question, is it possible to modify the radfilter object to remove the calender and/or time popups from appearing?

    Hello John,

    The picker controls that are nested in RadFilter won't inherit their culture out-of-the-box.
    I made a simple demo that shows how to set this culture manually. The same project demonstrates also how to hide the unwanted buttons.
    RadFilter1.PreRender += (s, a) =>
        IEnumerable<RadDateTimePicker> pickers = ControlsOfType<RadDateTimePicker>(RadFilter1).
            Where(p => p.SelectedDate == null).Select(p => p);
        foreach (RadDateTimePicker picker in pickers)
            picker.DatePopupButton.Visible = false;
            picker.TimePopupButton.Style.Add("visibility", "hidden"); //do not set Visible false here
            picker.Culture = RadGrid1.Culture;

    Hope this helps.
