    Will the the Prometheus RadDatePicker have the ability to pick quarterly dates as with the RicherComponents RichDatePicker? i.e. Q1 2008

    Hi William,

    We have no immediate plans for implementing such feature but we will forward it to our developers for future consideration. Could you elaborate a bit more on the expected behavior -- when you pick a quarterly interval which date is the datepicker supposed to display in the input field?

    With RichDatePicker, they have a pop up with Q1, Q2, Q3 & Q4 down the left hand side of the regular year picker.
    When a quarter (Q1-Q4) is selected & then a year is selected, the input field will display "Q1 2008" for example.

    On the server, the first day of the quarter is returned as the SelectedDate.

    An improvement would be the ability to have the first date or the last date of the quarter returned.
    Then as another example, you could have two date pickers where a date range of a selected year could be returned.

    e.g. QuarterStart.SelectedDate & QuarterEnd.SelectedDate

    It would be very useful for business and financial apps.

    Thanks
    William
