    I am able to click on the calendar icon and get the Calendar to display although date selections are not updated. Setting IsEnabled = false does not help either. Do we have a workaround?

    Hi Ramesh,

    The ReadOnly state is designed to provide just what you described - the control is functional (you can "read' it), but selection is disabled.

    If you wish to make the Calendar PART appear disabled when the DatePicker is in ReadOnly state, you can do the following: bind the IsEnabled property of the Calendar to the IsReadOnly property of its parent with an appropriate converter. Generate the template of RadDatePicker from Blend and try the following:

    <telerik:RadCalendar x:Name="PART_Calendar" Culture="{TemplateBinding Culture}" Grid.Column="0" 
                                                             IsEnabled="{Binding IsReadOnly, RelativeSource={RelativeSource TemplatedParent}, Converter={StaticResource BoolToOppositeBoolConverter}}" />

    I hope this helps.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
