    Telerik Support just explained why one of my RadDatePickers wouldn't pop up so I thought I'd pass it along.

    I was using ClientIDMode="Static" to create non-changing IDs for my JavaScript routines. Bad Move!

    Here's the explanation as to why you need to stick to AutoID:

    "Since these are controls with complex hierarchies of child controls and templates, setting their ClientID mode to Static will break their functionality"

    Maybe everyone else already knew this, but there you go.

    This isn't really acceptable. If you are using composite scripts you really need static ids.
