Here is my code...
  strDOB = strDOB & "/" & mid(USBHID.GetTrack(2), 30, 2) & "/" & mid(USBHID.GetTrack(2), 32, 2)  
document.getElementById ("ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_fvClients_DOBTextBox").value = strDOB 
It should populate my datepicker with the date of birth from my Javascript.

However this dosen't work using the control above, nothing is entered into the datepicker (and yes I have verified the variable holding the date is valid using an alert box) and looking at my rendered source code, I see that RadCalendar produces two more input controls:
ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_fvClients_DOBTextBox_dateInput_text
ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_fvClients_DOBTextBox_dateInput

If I change my JS code to populate these input boxes, I start to see results, however they still do not work.  If I use the input control which ends in "dateInput" and then click in the radDatePicker after it populates, the input control clears and the date is lost.

Then if I use the input control which ends in "dateInput_text" and then click in the radDatePicker after it populates, the input control changes to "0NaN/0NaN/0NaN" and the date reverts back default "minDate" of 1998/12/31

So my question is, using JS what input control should I be targeting and how do I get the date to "stick" even when someone clicks in the datePicker control field?

Hello Brett,

You should use the datepicker's API to set a value, not DOM operations. Here is the API:

set_selectedDate() is what you need. The method should be executed to the control's instance, not a DOM element.
