    In the RadDatePicker control for Silverlight, is there any way to force the user to enter a 4 digit year.
    I am using the control for a birthdate field.  The century defaults to the current century, if not entered.
    Also, the users don't like the popup starting at the day level, is there a way to start at decade, then drop, down, down to year, month, and day to select a full date.

    Hi Richard,

    You can restrict the RadDateTimePicker's  selection by using SelectableDateStart and SelectableDateEnd. You can also programmatically select the current date. This would come in handy to pre-select something for the user. You have the properties SelectedDate, SelectedTime and SelectedValue to use.

    Go to this link to learn how to implement these features.

    Good Luck,
