    I would like the RadDateTimePicker located in LayoutTemplate to fire InitInsert command.
    The problem is, RadDateTimePicker does not have CommandName property (and CommandArguments), so the only way to do that would be to fire command from SelectedDateChanged.

    I understand that RadListViewDataItem can use FireCommandEvent method, but how to get RadListViewDataItem when the RadListVIew is empty?

    In other words, how to make the following to start working as intended above

    protected void myDatePicker_SelectedDateChanged(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.Calendar.SelectedDateChangedEventArgs e)
                RadListViewDataItem r = new RadListViewDataItem(myRadListView, 0);
                r.FireCommandEvent("InitInsert", String.Empty);

    An alternative approach would be to use a client-side fireCommand:

    That should do the trick. Please give it a try and let me know about the result.
