    Hello all

    I've got a really strange problem with the RadCalendar control  (v. 2008.1.415.20) and  was hoping somebody could help me.

    When a date is selected from a drop-down menu, there is an autopostback that sets the minimum date to equal the date in my drop-down.

    i.e:     rcSelect.RangeMinDate = DateTime.Parse(lstDate.SelectedValue);

    If I select January 2009, I can then select February 2009 and so on, but I can't select a date from an earlier date - i.e. November 2008.

    Does anyone have an idea why this is?   All I want to do is make the month on the calendar match the month in the dropdown.

    You can see what I mean here:

    Best regards

    The RadCalendar is actually performaing exactly to the API. :) The "RangeMinDate" property sets the oldest date allowed for selection in the RadCalendar. Dates older than the RangeMinDate cannot be selected (just as dates above RangeMaxDate cannot be selected, either). See the API ref here:

    I'd suggest you use the Calendar's FocusedDate if all you're trying to do is change the focus of the Calendar:

    For top performance, though, I'd also encourage you to use the RadCalendar's client-side API in conjunction with RadCombobox's client-side API to avoid the need for a postback to change the calendar's focus. You can see the client-side API in action here:

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks very much for that Todd, I did suspect that I was using the wrong function - I'll get that in place now :)

    Also do you know if it is possible to set the number of days that are highlighted when you hover over the calendar?  i.e. Three days instead of just the one.

    Best regards and many thanks
