    Previous Question

    I am trying to validate date in server side. When I am trying to pass invalid date to my server side code, it is getting converted to {01/01/0001 00:00:00}.

    Works fine when I select proper date.

    Here is my code:

    <telerik:RadDatePicker ID="rdpDob" runat="server" AutoPostBack="true"   DateInput-EmptyMessage="MaxDate" MinDate="01/01/1000"MaxDate="01/01/3000">

    When I try to access the date value:

    It is returning as null.

    Which is quiet strange as I can see my invalid date being passed in the POST request.

    Whats wrong with what I am doing, Is there any property which I need to tweek??

    Hi Shubh,

    InValidDate will not be available after postback. One suggestion is that you can use the InvalidTextBoxValue  property. Please have a look into the sample code snippet.

    <telerik:RadDatePicker ID="RadDatePicker1" runat="server" MinDate="01/01/2014">
    <telerik:RadButton ID="RadButton1" runat="server" Text="Validate" OnClick="RadButton1_Click">

    protected void RadButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        string value=RadDatePicker1.DateInput.InvalidTextBoxValue;
        if (value != string.Empty)
            //your code for validation
