    In my applicationn i had a RadDatePicker with the following syntax:

    <telerik:RadDatePicker ID="txtDate" Runat="server" Skin="Sunset" 
                     FocusedDate="" MinDate="01/01/2006" ShowPopupOnFocus="True" TabIndex="20" 
                     Width="155px" MaxDate="01/01/2020">
                        <Calendar UseRowHeadersAsSelectors="False" UseColumnHeadersAsSelectors="False" 
                                             ViewSelectorText="x" Skin="Sunset"></Calendar>
                                           <DatePopupButton ImageUrl="" HoverImageUrl="" TabIndex="20"></DatePopupButton>
                        <DateInput DisplayDateFormat="dd/MM/yyyy" DateFormat="MM/dd/yyyy" TabIndex="20"></DateInput>

    My requirement is i need to bind 10 days back date from today's date to RadDatePicker with the following syntax:

    txtDate.SelectedDate =DateTime.Now.Date.AddDays(-10);

    Here i am getting the following error:

    Value of '7/2/2011 12:00:00 AM' is not valid for 'SelectedDate'. 'SelectedDate' should be between 'MinDate' and 'MaxDate'.
    Parameter name: SelectedDate

    Any one please suggest me the solution for this?

    It's very urgent...

    Thanks in advance...

    Hi Guruvu,

    Try to use Subtract method of the DateTime object to go back with 10 days:

    DateTime dt = DateTime.Now;
    TimeSpan tenDays = new TimeSpan(10,0,0,0);
    dt = dt.Subtract(tenDays);
    RadDatePicker1.SelectedDate = dt;
