Thank you for contacting us.
At first I would like to ask you what version of RadControls for WinForms you currently use?
Currently the MinDate
value cannot be set to a date before 1900. Otherwise it would throw an exception if you are using the current version. The min date (1,1,1900) is the minimum effective date we have put as a lowest date bound and the user cannot set it to something before than this date. If you are using the current version Q1 SP1 and try to set the date less than the (1,1,1900) could you please give me some instructions how to reproduce this ?
The issue with the Key
events in RadDateTimePicker
is known and we will have a fix for it for the next version. However, there is a workaround that lets you subscribe to the KeyEvents
has a property named TextBoxElement
. This property holds the child mask box shown in the RadDateTimePicker
and you can subscribe to its Key
events and receive KeyUp
I can assure you that we will consider changing the Min
dates behavior in RadDateTimePicker
but at the moment in this version you cannot set a date before 01.01.1900.
If you have more questions please write me back.
