    Hi, I am using RadDatePicker as follows:


    <telerik:RadDatePicker ID="RadDATERECIEVED" runat="server" Culture="English (United States)" >
    <DateInput runat="server" DateFormat="MM/dd/yyyy" MaxLength="10">


    The picker works fine, you can pick the date, it formats with a maximum length.

    I have two questions:

    1.  How do I set the DatePicker field so that the user cannot enter a date, it has to be chosen from the calendar.

    2.  I will be loading some records with an existing date from SQL that needs to be loaded into the DatePicker.   What property do I use as I see no value property.


    Thank you for your time.  Dale,

    Hello Dale,

    Straight to the points:

    1. You can use the following property to achieve this requirement:
    <DateInput ... ReadOnly="true">

    2. You can use the DbSelectedDate property similar to this live sample:

    I hope this will prove helpful.
