    I dont see any solution for disabling week ends and special days in date picker.
    Any workarounds?
    There is a solution for weekends, but we have to do server,client side code. But For special days?Holidays?
    the special days are by a caculation on server side, so doing this on client side as well is going to be hard..:(
    Shouldn't it be a simple propery to disable?

    Thanks Shinu.
    But I already tried this with no luck. They just disabling the current month. If click next month then, could be able to select the disabled dates. This case, have to implement client side script to disable.
    So i think, we need to do the same action at both client  and server side.
    This will be an issue for us, as we are dynamically disable dates at server side.

    I have already replied to your query in your support ticket 686818. I will repeat the approach here so other users with similar issues make avail:
    Does enabling the AutoPostBack property of the calendar works for you?
    <telerik:RadCalendar ID="RadCalendar3" runat="server" OnDayRender="RadCalendar3_DayRender" AutoPostBack="true">
    protected void RadCalendar3_DayRender(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.Calendar.DayRenderEventArgs e)
        if (e.Day.IsWeekend)
            RadCalendarDay weekendDay = new RadCalendarDay();
            weekendDay.Date = e.Day.Date;
            weekendDay.IsSelectable = false;
            (sender as RadCalendar).SpecialDays.Add(weekendDay);

    Hope this helps.
