    Hi Team,

    I want to make date picker textbox readonly so that user can only select the date from picker,but can not edit,so I do not need to do the client side validation any more.

    and the next thing is I want to display the date in .Format("dd MMM yyyy") format,but while passing this valuse to server,I want it to be in default dd-MM-yyyy format

    Can you please help me out in doing this.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Hello Preeti,

    Disabling the input could be achieved by adding a readonly attribute to the DatePicker's input element, as shown in this example. I am not aware how the DatePicker's value is being passed to the server in your application, but changing the formatting could be done using the toString method. For example: 
    date = kendo.toString(datepicker.value(), "dd-MM-yyyy");
