    1.  I have a RadCalendar control on a simple web page.
    2.  I have a listbox control with dates in it (format dd/mm/yyyy)
    3.  On load i want to take the dates in the listbox and select them in the calendar.

    Constraints.. have to do this serverside (no java)

    I tried this in the ItemDatabound event of my listbox control



    Protected Sub elstDates_DataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles elstDates.DataBound



    For Each li As ListItem In elstDates.Items


    ecalDatesWorked.SelectedDate =

    CType(li.Value, Date).ToShortDateString









    End Sub


    li does have the values that i need (debugged this) and I am not getting any errors on the SelectedDate

    Help please

    Hi Corey,

    Try the following code snippet in the PreRender event of the RadCalendar and see whether it works.

     Protected Sub RadCalendar1_PreRender(ByVal sender As ObjectByVal e As EventArgs)  
        For Each item As ListItem In ListBox1.Items  
            Dim [date] As New RadDate(Convert.ToDateTime(item.Text))  
     End Sub
