    Using Telerik v2013.1.220.40

    I have tried pretty much everything but can't seem to succeed with this seemingly simple task.

    I have 2 DateTimePicker, one for startDate and one for endDate.

    I want to use the NullText "Start Date" and "End Date" respectively.

    - When I put the date 1900-01-01 in startDate, the NullText "Start Date" should shows.
    - When I put the date 2199-01-01 in endDate, the NullText "End Date" should show.

    I don't have a problem with startDate control, but the endDate control always use the lowest date instead of my 2199-01-01.

    Please provide a solid sample that works

    Hello Luc,

    Thank you for writing.

    I was able to see the "Start Date" text when I put the 1900-01-01 and "End Date" when I set the 2199-01-01 in the second DateTimePicker - please, refer to the attached video.

    I have set the following properties for the controls:
    // startDateTimePicker
    this.startDateTimePicker.MinDate = new System.DateTime(1900, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0);           
    this.startDateTimePicker.NullDate = new System.DateTime(1900, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0);
    this.startDateTimePicker.NullText = "Start Date";           
    // endDateTimePicker
    this.endDateTimePicker.MaxDate = new System.DateTime(2199, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0);
    this.endDateTimePicker.NullDate = new System.DateTime(2199, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0);
    this.endDateTimePicker.NullText = "End Date";

    Please, refer to my test project.

    I hope this helps.

    All the best,
