    Hi Mike,

    Try adding following CSS for not showing the invalid style when typing custom text.

        <style type="text/css"
                border1px solid gray !important; 
                color: Black !important; 
                background-imagenone !important; 

        <telerik:RadDatePicker ID="RadDatePicker3" runat="server"
            <DateInput InvalidStyle-CssClass="MyInvalidStyleClass"

    Hello Mike,

    I am afraid that using custom text with the RadDatePicker control is not allowed - after all, this control has been designed to work with dates and for example its value is of DateTime type.

    If you still prefer using the same approach, then you can retrieve the user-input on the server with RadDatePicker1.ValidationDate property (the SelectedDate property will return null).

    All the best,
