    The standard WPF datepicker allows for the specification of blackout dates which prevents a user from selecting these date ranges.

    It would be excellent if this feature was in the Telerik datepicker as it looks a little weird having 1 standard wpf control amungst all the Telerik controls in my application.

    Further more, it would be nice to be able to 'easy set' things like "Weekdays only" as selectable.

    Just an idea,

    I'm having the same issue with RadDatePicker.
    The WPF RadCalendar has blackout dates, but I don't see any way to access the calendar that pops up for the date picker in order to set the blackout dates on it.  This also probably wouldn't prevent the user from just typing in a date that's blacked out.
    I was using the WPF toolkit DatePicker control in combination with the RadTimePicker control so that I could blackout all Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays, but am experiencing a bug with the WPF DatePicker control that I do not experience when replacing it with RadDatePicker.  This is not an option because of the missing blackout dates feature.  So I'm caught between the two.
    Has there been any progress on this?  I couldn't find a PITS item for this.  If there is one, can you please link it to this thread, and if there is not, can you please create one?
