    I have a problem with telerik ajax "Calendar".

    I managed to set the "" on the page load and it is working perfectly for me.

    But the problem is when I click to Navigate using the "prev month, prev year, next month or next year" a "default date is to be selected", instead here the prevoiusly selected date (that is value) exists if any one one of the "Navigation is clicked".

    Actually I want a postback on the calendar click and I am plannning to load the data correspending to the "Selected Date". But here the selected date doesnot change on the Navigation Click.

    You can see the "system calender" set a default value on the Navigation click to "default 1 st day of the corresponding Month and year".

    Is it possible to set a default date on the Navigation month and year click. This is very much needed for this.

    And as a workaround "Can we manage to set a default date on the clientside of the navigation cllick"

    Any Help is appreciated,

    Hello Vinu,

    You can achieve the default date selection on navigating the calendar using script similar to:
    <script type="text/javascript">
        var currentDate;
        function selectDate(sender, eventArgs) {
            if (currentDate) {
                currentDate = sender.get_focusedDate();

    You should call this function on the client CalendarViewChanged event.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
