    I am using a rad date picker control in my web application. Now, i want user to enter date using keyboard, via calendar of date picker.

    So, user press TAB key to reach input box , then another TAB to reach date picker button, press ENTER key to open calendar.

    Now i want that this ENTER to bring focus over calendar control. So that next tab moves within calendar dates and navigation ctrls.

    Then i move out of calendar either by pressing ESC key or by selecting a date. And this should bring the tabbing focus back to either date input area or calendar button. I have handled this moving out part by writing javascript on OnPopupclosing.

    <radCln:RadDatePicker ID="RadDateOfEvent" runat="server" Width="90px" TabIndex="2"Style="z-index: 104;">
        <ClientEvents OnPopupClosing="onDateTimeSelected" />
        <DateInput TabIndex="2"></DateInput>
    <Calendar TabIndex="2" AccessKey="Q"></Calendar>

    If there could be a client event like OnPopUpOpened , then also i can write a javascript to move focus to calendar pop up. But we only have OnPopupOpening and this doesn't work as we can't move focus before the control is displayed.

    Hi ankool,

    Please take a look at the following KB article that elaborates on setting focus to the calendar control directly.
