Hi

I want to ask what is the RadCalendar's default value when open/displayed for first time? In my expense app, I'm displaying a RadCalendar on the main page filled with expense data. At that time, RadCalendar.SelectedValue.Value is not set (it is NULL), so I want do assign the default value or if possible the RadCalender.Display.Value which is always the actual date I think.
How can I check the RadCalendar's selected value for NULL and set it to the default/display date?
Thank you very much.

Kind regards,
Joerg

Hello Joerg,

Thank you for contacting us.

Yes, the default value for SelectedValue is null. It is a normal DependencyProperty which you can set to whatever date you want, in XAML:
<telerikInput:RadCalendar x:Name="calendar" SelectedValue="2012/10/25"/>
or in code-behind:
calendar.SelectedValue = DateTime.Today.AddDays(3);

The display value is used for displaying the correct month, so its default value is the first day of the current month. If you change it, this will cause the calendar to display a different month.

I hope this information helps.

Kind regards,

Is there a way to revert this. To make the selectedValue to default.
Or to deselect the current selection???

Hello,

You can set it to null:

calendar.SelectedValue = null;
