I have a user control with a RadDatePicker on it and set the focus to the picker when the control recieves focus.
This seems to work great except the existing date does not highlighted and has to be deleted chard by char before you can type a new one.

Is there any way to set focus and highlight the exsiting contents?

If I tab away and alt + tab back it does highlight the contents.

Hi Lee,

The easiest way I found was to set custom control template to the RadDateTimePicker and attach to the GotFocus event of RadWatermarkTextbox. On GotFocus I called watermark.SelectAll and it worked. You can find an attached project demonstrating this.
