I've just gotten my hands on the Q3 release, and I'm looking through the demo application to check out what's new.

I noticed that the way the date picker handles dates isn't working very well. A couple things I noticed right away in the demo on the RadDateTimePicker page:

1. Long Date Format, if you change the year or day, the day text (Thursday, etc) doesn't change if you exit the control (tab away, or click on another control). However, if you click on the control again after leaving, the name of the day will change to be the correct one.

2. Probably linked to this, but worse: If you change the date on the short date format box, by typing in something like 2008.. and then click the drop down menu to get the calendar, the calendar refuses to update itself unless you click away, click back into the text area, and THEN click on the down area to display the calendar.

3. Time format.. O_O How on earth does picking a date have anything to do with the time format? You also can't tab to jump between hours / minutes / seconds, making it pretty much useless as a time control.

4. I can't seem to get the calendar to display a date from before 1900, although I suspect that may be a setting - at the very least though, it shouldn't allow me to actually enter a date not in the range of the calendar...

5. Heh. The tab order on the RadMaskedEditBox DateTime screen is out of order :)

Found another one.. if you set the min/ max range of the Rad Calendar as the same month, and then click on the Month/Year at the top of the calendar, it shows up a list of the same month.. And with more fiddling, basically if you're on another month, the list you get when you click on the month name, isn't being updated when you are jumped back to within the proper range of dates given.

EG, set it to the 23 - 25 of August, then navigate over to say January and pick a date.. calendar jumps back to August, but if you click on the Month title, the list will have January highlighted. It will also allow you to navigate away using the month list, but it won't let you use the forward/back buttons.
