    I'm using RAD Calender with Multiselect = 'False'.
    When I click on an already selected date, the date get deselected.
    I want to stop that.

    Is there any property to do that or How Can I do that?

    Attach OnDateSelecting event to RadCalendar and try the following client side code.

    <script type="text/javascript"
        function OnDateSelecting(sender, args) {   
            if (args._renderDay.IsSelected) {

    Does this solution still work?
    When I try this script, it breaks the EnableMultiSelect="False"
    In other words, multiple days can be selected despite multiselect being turned off.

    I am using 2010.03.1109.40

    Hi Samuel,

    You can use the OnDateClick event to get the date that is about to be selected and then compare it with the current date. Here is a code sample:

    var date = null;
            function OnDateSelecting(sender, args) {  
                var currentDate = args.get_renderDay().get_date();
                var newDate = new Date(currentDate[0], currentDate[1], currentDate[2]);
                if (args.get_renderDay().IsSelected && isDatesEquals(date,newDate)) {
            function OnDateClick(sender, eventArgs)
                var d = eventArgs.get_renderDay().get_date();
                date = new Date(d[0], d[1], d[2]);
            function isDatesEquals(date1, date2)
                if(date1.getFullYear() == date2.getFullYear() && date1.getMonth() == date2.getMonth() && date1.getDate() == date2.getDate())
                    return true;
                else return false;
