    Wondering if there's a way to override the default error message, "Error" when args.IsParsingSuccessful is set to false in the ParseDateTimeValue event handler. Would like to provide something more descriptive to my users.

    Hi Wilfred,

    The control provides ErrorTooltipContent property - you could modify it in the event handler as desired once the parsing is not successful:
    private void RadDateTimePicker_ParseDateTimeValue(object sender, ParseDateTimeEventArgs args)
        (sender as RadDatePicker).ErrorTooltipContent = "Another Error";
        args.IsParsingSuccessful = false;

    Hope this helps. If you have any other questions or concerns, please let us know.

    Exactly what I was looking for. Was looking at properties of the wrong control.
