Telerik DateTimePicker in .NET MAUI

When we create an app, it is likely that at some point we will have to interact with the date. For this reason, today’s challenge is about the DateTimePicker that Progress Telerik has for .NET MAUI, which helps us to choose a date easily and without complications. You can set the date format to suit your needs and customize its appearance! In this challenge we will play around with the modes that this Picker has available to you in .NET MAUI.

Challenge: What is the Picker mode shown in the image?

A screenshot of the Telerik DateTimePicker component, in an interaction state where the user is allowed to manually input a date via several scrolling wheels for Month, Day, and Year.

Option A:

         PickerMode="DropDown" />

Option B:

         PickerMode="Popup" />

Option C:

         PickerMode="Alert" />

Do you already have the answer? Perfect! Please click below to see the solution—here you can see the correct answer and its explanation with supporting materials.

The correct answer is option A! 💥

         PickerMode="DropDown" />

The correct answer is A due to the following points:

  • Option B: It is not correct because the appearance of the PopUp is slightly different from the image. The popup displays the UI for choosing a date within a popup.
  • Option C: “Alert” mode does not exist.

It’s for this reason that the DropDown Mode is the correct answer (Option A). This mode opens the UI for picking a date inside a dropdown.
