Hi,

If i create a control like this:

RadDatePicker date = new RadDatePicker();
            date.EnableTyping = false;
            date.ShowPopupOnFocus = true;

Disabling typing also disables Popup.. ..but i only want the popup, that's why i disable typing! :D

So now i have a control that allows no input at all!

Disabling typing should actually force popup = true

Also, you should probably not show a caret in the input box when typing is disabled. Very misleading.

Hello,


I tried same code and that got worked for me and the pop-up calendar is showing on clicking the image for the date-picker. I am using RadControls version 2010, 3, 1109, 35. If you want to show calendar popup when clicking the input, then you can make use of the client side api (by calling showPopup method).

Hi,

If you read my code you'd see there's a Property for this exact purpose.

Hi Kræn,

In your scenario I would suggest you to us the "ReadOnly" property of the controls instead of "EnableTyping". Give this a try and let me know how it goes.

Using the "ReadOnly" property doesn't resolve the issue.  Any other suggestions, or is this a bug?  I'm having the same issue with the v.2011.1.519.40 build.

Hi Andrew,

Find attached a sample runnable application which shows the correct functionality of both methods for preventing typing in DateInput. Test it on your aide and let me know what the difference in your case is.

Hi Jr,

Could you please let me know what exactly you mean by "still not working" ? Are you able to type in the input in the provided project. On my side the application works as expected. 
Please let me know what version of Telerik RadControls are you using?

Hi Maria,
I am testing at your demo project that you have provided, so I guess the RadControls are the latest version.
So about the problem:
I am not able to type in the input, but the property "ShowPopupOnFocus" should open the calendar when I select the datainput.
If the property of the RadDatePicker "EnableTyping" is set to true, the other property "ShowPopupOnFocus" is working as expected. In the other case nothing happens. I need to ensure that the users cannot type in the dateInput field but when they click on it the calendar should pop up.

Hello Jr,

In this case possible approach is to cancel the keypressing in the keydown event of the DateInput component. Please find attached a sample application which presents this functionality. Test it locally and verify if it covers your requirements.

Did this get solved? I'm having the same issue. My declaration is:

<telerik:RadDatePicker ID="ec_dtEndDate" runat="server" ShowPopupOnFocus="true" EnableTyping="False" />

I've also tried 

<telerik:RadDatePicker ID="ec_dtEndDate" runat="server" ShowPopupOnFocus="true" DateInput-ReadOnly="true" />

Either way, the date pop-up does not appear when the text box gets focus. Also the zip you supplied with the possible solution seems to be corrupted -can you repost?

I'm referencing the 2011.3.1305.40 build in my project in Visual Studio.

Thanks,
BB

Hi BB,

It seems that you have some problem downloading the project attached as on my end it appears to be correct. However here is the full code of the application:

JS:
<script type="text/javascript">
        function numericInput(e) {
            e = e || window.event;
            if (e.preventDefault) e.preventDefault();
            e.returnValue = false;
            return false;
        }
  
    </script>
ASPX:
<asp:Panel ID="Panel1" runat="server">
    <telerik:RadDatePicker ID="RadDatePicker1" ShowPopupOnFocus="true" runat="server">
        <DateInput runat="server">
        </DateInput>
    </telerik:RadDatePicker>
</asp:Panel>
C#:
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
       RadDatePicker1.DateInput.Attributes.Add("onkeydown", "numericInput(event);");
    }

I hope this works for you.

Ok, but this didn't fix the problem. It prevents the user from typing in the text field but as stated here several times by me and others I need the date popup calendar to appear when the user clicks into the text field. Something like ;

DatePicker1.DateInput.Attributes.Add("onfocus", "showthecalendar(event);")


Is this possible?

Hello BB,

Find attached the sample application you were previously unable to download.

I further tested it on my end and it seems to cover all your requirements. Test it on your end and let me know if this works for you.
