I'm using the RadDatePicker control and let's say I enter '1' into the control and tab away. The control automatically assigns '1/1/2009' to the control. We do not want this, is there a way to stop this and make it invalid so the user has to enter a valid date?

One possible solution would be to intercept the OnValueChanging event of the date input (part of the date picker control), check whether the newValue argument can be parsed to a valid date and cancel the operation if this condition is not met.
In order to provide user-friendly notification that the entered value is invalid and has to be changed, consider attaching RadToolTip to the date input and utilize the approach presented in this blog post.
Let me know whether these directions are helpful.
