    By default RadDateTimePicker taking Today date whenever select time from timepicker.

    Expected Behavior:
    Suppose today date is 23-Apr-2012.When we choose time(7:00 PM) for the first time it should selected as "XX-Apr-2012 7:00 PM" instead "23-Apr-2012 7:00 PM". 

    Note: 'XX' could be any date.It is purely situational.

    Can it possible to change default behavior to expected date ???

    Hello Pradeep,

    DatePicker loads the present day upon selecting a Time value, because it is declared as its focused day by default.
    To change that and define a custom initial Date, please use the OnClientTimeSelected event of the TimePicker:
    <telerik:RadDateTimePicker ID="RadDateTimePicker1" runat="server"
    function timeSelected(sender, args) {
     if (args.get_oldTime() == null) {
      var dateTimePicker = $find("<%=RadDateTimePicker1.ClientID %>");
      var selectedDate = args.get_newTime().toString();
      var index = selectedDate.indexOf(":");
      var hours = selectedDate.substring(index - 2, index);
      var minutes = selectedDate.substring(index + 1, index + 3);
      dateTimePicker.set_selectedDate(new Date("01/01/2012/" + hours + ":" + minutes));

    It works properly on my end. Please give it a try and let me know what is the result

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
