Hello,

I am using a RadDatePicker Q12008

If I have it this way:
<telerik:RadDatePicker ID="rdpStartDate" runat="server">  
     <DateInput   
        ID="DateInput1" runat="server"   
        DateFormat="MMM yyyy" DisplayDateFormat="MMM yyyy">  
     </DateInput> 
</telerik:RadDatePicker> 
 

I select a date and it displays it fine  "Mar 2007"

But if I change the formats to " DateFormat="MM/yyyy" DisplayDateFormat="MM/yyyy"

No matter what date I select, it always shows the month as 09 (the current month).. the year is correct

"09/2007" instead of "03/2007"

Ultimate goal is I need to be able to have them pick month and yeah, no day.

Thanks,
Matt

Hi Matt,

Try setting DisplayDateFormat alone in order to display month and year in the input of RadDatePicker.

ASPX:
 
<telerik:RadDatePicker ID="rdpStartDate" runat="server"
    <DateInput ID="DateInput1" runat="server" DisplayDateFormat="MM/yyyy"
    </DateInput> 
</telerik:RadDatePicker> 

Go through the following forum link for more information about this:

Shinu,
Thank you very much, works like a charm!

Quick related question..  Anyone know if there is any way I can get just the month/year picker to come up and select from that instead of the calendar?  People whine that they have to select a day when the day is meaningless in this case.

Thanks again!

Matt

Hi Matt,

Check out the following code library submission and see whether it meets your requirement.
Month/Year picker

Shinu,

I know that this is an older post, and against an older version of the RadControls, but I wasn't sure how to accomplish the Month/Year picker so I thought I'd give the link you posted a try. However, the code library is not working 100% exactly as it is supposed to. It is always switching the month to the current month (01) rather than the month that I choose (09).

Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks!

It looks like the issue appears if you change the Date Format from  "MMMM yyyy" to "MM/yyyy" or "MM yyyy".

Any clue why this doesn't work when you change the date format?

Thanks!

Hi Matt,

Could you please try using the following declaration for the DateInput and let me know if the issue still exists:
<DateInput DateFormat="MM/dd/yyyy" DisplayDateFormat="MM/yyyy">
</DateInput>

Looking forward for your reply.

Kind regards,

Hi Radoslav,

I made the suggested modifications and the Month/Year picker is properly displaying the selected month and year.

Thank you!!!
