    I'm writing to learn if it is possible to format the RadDatePicker Telerik Silverlight control.

    For example, following a date selection, display the selected date in "yyyyMMdd" format 

    - rather than display the selected date in the default "MM/dd/yyyy".

    Thanks in advance for any insight!  

    Best regards, Rob

    Hi Robert ,

    Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately the RadDatePicker is using an internal date parser system which is not fully supporting all of the know date formats. The requested by you date format is one of the not supported from the control ones. You may try setting "yyyy.MM.dd ". Hope this is knot a showstopper for your application. Let us know if you need any further assistance.

    Hi Team,
    I am using Telerik RadDatePicker in my Silverlight Project.

    <StackPanel x:Name="StackPanelDates" Orientation="Horizontal" Margin="0,0,0,0" Visibility="Visible" HorizontalAlignment="Center">
                        <telerik:RadDatePicker x:Name="DatePickerStart"  DateSelectionMode="Month" Margin="0" SelectionChanged="DatePickerStart_SelectionChanged" />
                        <TextBlock x:Name="TextBlockTo" Margin="10,0" Text="to" VerticalAlignment="Center" />
                        <telerik:RadDatePicker x:Name="DatePickerEnd" DateSelectionMode="Month" Margin="0" SelectionChanged="DatePickerEnd_SelectionChanged" />

    I am facing a problem, when I click on Date Picker, I have Year in Header and 2 arrows in right and left corner to navigate to year. But I am not able to go forward and backward year by clicking it.

    It would be great if you provide any solution for that..

    Hi Nasko,

    Thanks for the quick reply. 
    I found the problem. I was using dll version 2013.1.0220.1050. I tried the version 2013.1.0403.1050 and in this version the navigation is working fine.

    Thank you... :)
