I'm having a heck of a time just finding how to do basic operations. I feel bad about posting something as simple as this, but how does one do simple things like assign a value to this control and retreive the selected value?

Does one use "RadDatePicker1.DateInput.Text", or is there a better property to get at this?

I was using this property and got "Text property cannot be set. String was not recognized as a valid DateTime." and am suspecting perhaps isn't the way.

Thanks in advance!

Edit: I found a property called "selectedDate" and that seems to work. However I'm not sure if this is the recommended practice.

Hi Darren,

You could surely use the SelectedDate property which returns a DateTime? type value. You could also use it to assign a given date to your picker.

I am attaching a sample web site to demonstrate how you could access the picker's value. In addition, please check out the following topics:
 RadCalendar Server-Side Objects
  RadDatePicker Client-Side Object

I hope this will prove helpful.

Kind regards,
