    It seems autopostback needs to be true for month navigation to work. Can calendar navigate without postbacks, just with using javascript?

    Hi Abdu Bukres,

    RadCalendar needs to postback when navigating only when you have multiple month views, as in the following demo:

    http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/calendar/examples/functionality/multimonthview/defaultcs.aspx

    Otherwise a postback is not necessary, as you can see in the other RadCalendar demos.

    Let us know if you need more information.

    Kind regards,

    Hi,

    I'm using the multi-month view (just 2 months, MultiViewColumns="2") in a scenario with a date range selection. I understand that there will be full support for date range selection in the upcoming Q3 release.

    I'm hoping that the autopostback=true requirement for multi-month view will be dropped in this release as well. Can anyone confirm this? I'd like my users to be able to navigate through the calendar quickly (i.e. clientside only) with a two-month view.

    EDIT: obviously, doing a date range selection in an autopostback=true scenario would be awkward anyway.

    Thanks for any feedback.

    The change to another month in multimonth should be done in the client side. I have used two other datepickers from other vendors and they are doing it client side.

    Hi all,

    Currently we have no intention to drop the postback requirement for multimonth calendar, however, we can research this behavior in the future.

    Hello Dimo,

    Thanks for looking into this. I really hope that the clientside multi-month navigation will be part of the product soon.

    Regarding my date range selection scenario: at a minimum, I'd like to be able to control whether the calendar posts back while the range is being set; if it's a two-click selection (i.e. click date 1, click date 2), it would be awkward if the calendar posts back after the first click.

    I hope this makes sense.
