    I wonder if anyone can shed any light on this query that I am having with the Calendar control.

    When I click on the drop down and select a date (eg 08/08/2009), I would like to prefix the date with the day of week (eg Sat 08/08/2009) in the text box of the control. Does anyone know if this is feasible as I am having no luck which trying to do this.

    Thanks, Dwight

    Hello Dwight,

    There is no property you can use in the current version of the RadDatePicker. But using a small trick can help you. Try adding a small TextBlock near to the RadDatePicker and bind it's text to the SelectedDate property of the RadDatePicker using a converter. You can separate this functionality in a UserControl so you can use it in more then one place. Let us know if you need some additional explanation.

    All the best,
