    1) Has there been any change in the autocorrect DatePicker?  Is there anyway to disable this functionnality?  If my client types in 2012-13-02 I don't want the date to become 2012-02-13 cause maybe he mistakenly wanted to type 2012-12-02.

    2)When I type an invalid date like "qwerty", how can I keep the value in the datePicker after a postback.  The field does show an exclamation mark but I would like to handle the error myself.

    Thank you!

    Hi Hélène,

    You could specify the format of the control's value by using DateFormat property.
    <telerik:RadDatePicker ID="RadDatePicker1" Runat="server">
        <DateInput DateFormat="yyyy/dd/MM"></DateInput>

    A possible solution is to add a hidden field and save the date as its value when the date in the RadDatePicker is changed. I prepared a small sample and attached it to this forum post.
