RadDatePicker is a composite control that combines the functionality of RadCalendar and RadDateInput to assist in the process of allowing users to select dates in a web application.
The three major components of a date picker are:
- RadDateInput -- a textbox-like control that validates dates as the user types and assist the user with some shortcuts when typing numbers, month and day names;
- RadCalendar -- a month calendar that is shown in a popup element, so that the user can select a date by clicking a day in the displayed month;
- CalendarPopupButton -- an image button, displayed next to the input box that shows and hides the calendar popup.
Notice that the RadCalendar component as a part of the RadDatePicker works with AutoPostBack="false" which means that can not work in multi-month view.
