Hi,

How do I set the DateFormat in the RadDatePicker.

For example, I want to show the date 9/7/09 as July 9, 2009 in the textbox. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
wpfguy

Hello liza g,

 You can try the following code:

CultureInfo culture = (CultureInfo)CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.Clone();
culture.DateTimeFormat.ShortDatePattern = "MMM/dd/yyyy";
datePicker1.Culture = culture;

This will set the date to this format : May/06/2010.

Let me know if you have more questions.

Sincerely yours,

but I have to do it from the XAML, 
cause it's a DatePicker in a DataTemplate inside a gridView
and if I set it a name, it's not recognize in the cs file.
here is my code:
<telerik:RadGridView>
<telerik:RadGridView.Columns>
<telerik:GridViewDataColumn
  <telerik:GridViewDataColumn.CellTemplate>
<DataTemplate>
<TextBlock Text="{Binding myDate}" />
 </DataTemplate>
 </telerik:GridViewDataColumn.CellTemplate>

<telerik:GridViewDataColumn.CellEditTemplate>
<DataTemplate>
<telerikInput:RadDatePicker Loaded="Editor_Loaded" 
SelectedDate="{Binding myDate, Mode=TwoWay}"/>
</DataTemplate>
</telerik:GridViewDataColumn.CellEditTemplate>
</telerik:GridViewDataColumn>
</telerik:RadGridView.Columns>
<telerik:RadGridView>

Hello liza g,

You can set a global culture that will be applied to the RadDatePicker also.

CultureInfo culutreInfo = System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture.Clone() as CultureInfo;
culutreInfo.DateTimeFormat.ShortDatePattern = "MMM dd/yyyy";
System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = culutreInfo;

Best wishes,
