Hi Veeresh,

When you call the getDate() function ?
If the function is called before the object is created, then it will be null.
The JavaScript on your page is executed in the sequence that it is loaded in your page. So for example:

<script>
var a = find("<%= RadDatePicker1.ClientID %>");
<script/>
 
<telerik:RadDatePicker ID="RadDatePicker1" runat="server">
</telerik:RadDatePicker>
 
<script>
var b = find("<%= RadDatePicker1.ClientID %>");
<script/>

"a" will be null and "b" will be the correct object.
