    Im using a RadCalendar control and when I start typing, and after typing the first figit, the rest of the date is "auto completed".  Although I can type over it, as usual, the date that is "auto filled" is not really something I want.  How can I enable a user to just type the whole date with no auto filling of parts of the date ?

    Hi AilWeb,

    I am afraid I cannot completely understand the problem you are facing. Can you elaborate a bit more on the problem? Also, can you reproduce the problem with some of the online examples? If so, can you point us to that example and send steps to reproduce the problem?

    Well, its not really an error, per say, but it has to do with what date is being populated within the dateinput field when a user starts typing.  I have "AllowEmpty = true" for the DatePicker.

    To describe what is happening, its something like this -
    When the page is rendered, the dateinput field is blank except for the "/" characters.  If a user started to type a date for example, 12/15/2005 , after typing the first character is typed, the rest of the date is filled in as the user continues to type.  The year is getting set to 1980 after the user types the first character.  Its this pre-filling out of the remainder of the date that I want to turn off if possible.  Id like the user to be able to type the full date into the input field, without any assistance - or use the picker to choose a date.

    My calendar definition is this:

    <radCln:RadDatePicker ID="EffDate" runat="server" AllowEmpty="true" > 
                <Calendar Skin="WebBlue" runat="server"></Calendar> 
                <DateInput CatalogIconImageUrl="" Description="" DisplayPromptChar="_" PromptChar=" " Title="" TitleIconImageUrl="" TitleUrl="" Width="100"  ></DateInput></radCln:RadDatePicker>

    Hi AilWeb,

    I suggest you upgrade to the latest RadCalendar as we included many improvements there. You can review the following help article:
