With the DateTimePicker, I can bind a nullable DateTime property to NullableValue:

resolvedDateTimePicker.DataBindings.Add("NullableValue", _bindingSource, "DateResolved", true, DataSourceUpdateMode.OnPropertyChanged);

 

Unfortunately the NullableValue property doesn't seem to exist for the TimePicker.

Will this be implemented at some point, and/or how would I bind a DateTimePicker to a nullable DateTime?

Hello Eric,

The RadTimePicker already supports this. Its Value property type is nullable DateTime and you can directly set it to null:
private void radButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    radTimePicker1.Value = null;
}

I hope this will be useful. Let me know if you have additional questions.

Hi Dimitar,

Thanks for the response, that works great.

It wasn't initially working because I was setting the "formattingEnabled" parameter to false when I was adding the DataBindings.  So I thought that, like the DateTimePicker, you couldn't bind to Value if your DataTime was nullable.  It's a little confusing that they work differently, but it's all good now, thanks.

Hi Eric,

Yes, indeed it's a bit confusing, with RadDateTimePicker this was added as a later point and this is why there is another property. Nevertheless, I am glad that his works as expected now and do not hesitate to contact us if you have other questions.
