    I find that in the raddatepicker if you manually type in the date and try to access what is in the object I get 01/01/0001 instead of what was typed in. Is there some setting to set to manual typing is allowed?

    You did not specify if you are accessing the typed in value on the client or in code behind.

    Here's a simple sample to assist with client-side accessing of a value that is typed into the DateInput TextBox of the RadDatePicker ujsing JavaScript:

    <%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="Default" %>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <head runat="server">
        <telerik:RadStyleSheetManager id="RadStyleSheetManager1" runat="server" />
        <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server">
                <%--Needed for JavaScript IntelliSense in VS2010--%>
                <%--For VS2008 replace RadScriptManager with ScriptManager--%>
                <asp:ScriptReference Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Name="Telerik.Web.UI.Common.Core.js" />
                <asp:ScriptReference Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Name="Telerik.Web.UI.Common.jQuery.js" />
                <asp:ScriptReference Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Name="Telerik.Web.UI.Common.jQueryInclude.js" />
        <script type="text/javascript">
            function DisplayDateInputDate(sender, args) {
                var date = sender.get_selectedDate();
        <telerik:RadAjaxManager ID="RadAjaxManager1" runat="server">
            <telerik:RadDatePicker ID="rdpMinDate" runat="server" Width="140px" AutoPostBack="true"
                DateInput-EmptyMessage="MinDate" MinDate="01/01/1000" MaxDate="01/01/3000" DateInput-ClientEvents-OnValueChanged="DisplayDateInputDate">
            <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text=""></asp:Label>

    And to access the value in server-side code:

    using Telerik.Web.UI;
    public partial class Default : System.Web.UI.Page
        protected void rdpMinDate_SelectedDateChanged(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.Calendar.SelectedDateChangedEventArgs e)
            Label1.Text = "You selected: " + e.NewDate.Value.ToShortDateString();

    Hope this helps!
