Hello,

I am using the DatePicker for a couple of date controls.

But when I disable the controls (because of some business logic) the property in my Model that is bound to the DatePicker looses the value it has when submitting the form.
When I debug my Post Edit method I see that my Model has no values for the properties attached to the Terik DatePicker control.

Is this by design? Or am I doing something wrong?

I disable the control with the build in .disable() method.

When I disable a Telerik ComboBox, the attached property of my model keeps its value when Submitting.

How do I disable a Telerik DatePicker without the underlying model loosing its bound property?

Thanks,

I'm noticing the same thing... disabled date pickers don't post their value.

Hello Nebras,

This is an expected behavior. HTML input element will not post its value if it is decorated with disabled="disabled" attribute, which is the case here. You can overcome this limitation if you create hidden input element with the same name as DatePicker and post its value when the DatePicker is disabled.

Nevertheless I will forward this issue to our developer for further investigation and consideration.

Disabled inputs don't post values when submitting forms.  This is a rule of HTML.  If you want the value to get posted when the control is disabled, you'll need to copy the value into a hidden element.

The spec is at http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/interact/forms.html#h-17.12
A good workaround (using readonly instead of disabled) can be found at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4727974/how-to-post-submit-an-input-checkbox-that-is-disabled
