I have a problem with autocorrect functionality of RadDatePicker control. When I manually type invalid date '29-02-2010' (no such date this year) it is automatically changed to '28-02-2010', without any notice. It might be confusing for users, so I would rather like to display validation message and let users correct themselves. However, I cannot find a way to turn autocorrection off. I would be most grateful for any tips.

Hello,

Add the following client side code in order to override the built-in date parser engine.

JavaScript:
 
<script type="text/javascript">    
    Telerik.Web.UI.RadDateInput.prototype.parseDate = function(value, baseDate)    
    {    
        if (new Date(value) != "NaN")    
            return value;    
    }    
</script>   

Hope this helps,
Princy.

Unfortunatelly something goes wrong with this solution - when I use the function you suggested some client events of DatePicker and its DateInput are blocked. For example, 'ValueChanging" of DateInput is executed, but "ValueChanged" not. "DateSelected" od DatePicker doesn't work either. How can I deal with this?

Unfortunately, the date picker control is awful.

My suggestion is that you abandon Telerik and implement one of these options:

I suggest the jquery route.

I have almost the complete opposite of the above problem with the radDatePicker date input. When tabbing away from a GridDateTimeColumn where the column has the following properties:

<telerik:GridDateTimeColumn HeaderText="Sign Date"
UniqueName="SignatureDate"  
DataFormatString="{0:MM/dd/yyyy}"
EditDataFormatString="MM/dd/yyyy"
MaxLength="10">
<HeaderStyle Width="120px" />
</telerik:GridDateTimeColumn>

The autocorrect function that I'm assuming is embedded in the Telerik DLL isn't consistently firing. On the Radgrid right above it though, it works correctly. Any idea as to how I can ensure that this fires every time I move away from the GridDateTimeColumn?

Thanks,

- Joe
