    I have this RadDatePicker:

     <td class="auto-style1">Birth Date: *</td>
     <td class="auto-style2">
    telerik:RadDatePicker ID="RadDatePicker1" runat="server" Culture="it-IT" MaxDate="2015-12-31" MinDate="1920-01-01">
     <asp:RequiredFieldValidator runat="server" ID="datevalidator" ControlToValidate="RadDatePicker1" Display="Dynamic" ForeColor="#FF3300" ErrorMessage="Enter a date!">

    and I call this JS
    <asp:Panel ID="Panel1" runat="server">
     <script type="text/javascript">
     function ageProb() {
     var DatePicker1 = $find("<%= RadDatePicker1.ClientID %>");
     DatePicker1.get_dateInput()._textBoxElement.style.backgroundColor = "yellow";

    With this line of code:
    ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(this, GetType(), "ageProb", "ageProb();", true);

    I have two problems with the above:

    I had to put the JS in the body section otherwise I get an error saying: "Impossible to modify the Controls collection because the control contains code blocks (like <% ... %>)".

    2) The JS script does not have effect on the RadDatePicker, I mean the background color does not change and I do not get the focus either.

    How can I change the background color and get the focus on the RadDatePicker?

    Thanks for supporting

    Hi Felice,

    You can achieve this requirement directly on server-side:
    protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        RadDatePicker1.DateInput.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Yellow;

    Hope this helps. Please give it a try and let me know if it works for you.
