    When you set a MinDate on a RadDatePicker, the Calendar's arrows are hidden to prevent straying into the wrong month... however in the Calendar, the arrows aren't hidden and instead I get a JavaScript alert:

    Message from webpage
    Date is out of range.

    How do I hide the arrows?

    Hi Richard,

    Note that setting the RadDatePicker.MinDate and Calendar.RangeMinDate have the same effect on the functionality. However, if you want to hide the arrows you could achieve your scenario by using the code provided below which hides the prev and fast prev arrows.
    <telerik:RadCalendar ID="RadCalendar1" runat="server" RangeMinDate="03/07/2013">
        <ClientEvents OnCalendarViewChanged="CalendarViewChanged" />
    <telerik:RadScriptBlock runat="server">
        <script type="text/javascript">
            var calendar;
            function pageLoad()
                calendar = $find("<%= RadCalendar1.ClientID %>");
            function CalendarViewChanged(sender, args)
            function updateIconsVisibility()
                var display = "visible";
                if (calendar.get_rangeMinDate()[1] == calendar.get_focusedDate()[1])
                    display = "hidden";
                $telerik.getElementByClassName(calendar.get_element(), "rcPrev").style.visibility = display;
                $telerik.getElementByClassName(calendar.get_element(), "rcFastPrev").style.visibility = display;
