    I have a Grid with a lot of rows and a different DateTime value on each row. When I mouse hover the rows I set the selectedDate of an outside RadDatePicker client-side using the javascript set_selectedDate().
    When the user opens the calendar popup and selects a different date a server side event is fired and the grid is updated with AJAX.

    The problem is that the client javasript set_seletedDate method also fires the server side event because of the Autopostback, but I want the server event fired only when the date is changed using the popup.
    If I set Autopostback to False then the server event never gets fired..

    How can I cancel the server postback after I call set_selectedDate() and make the popup selecteddatechanged server event keep working?

    It is annoying not providing the solution in short form with sample code in these forum posts.

    Having to download Visual Studio solutions is awkward.

    Best regards,
