    I am trying to understand why the RadDatePicker will not populate the Input field with just calling the following statement in the PreRender method?

        protected void RadDatePickerStart_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e) 
            if (!RadDatePickerStart.SelectedDate.HasValue) 
                RadDatePickerStart.SelectedDate = DateTime.Today.AddDays(-1); 

    For me to get the value to populate to the DatePicker textbox I have to add this assignment:
    RadDatePickerStart.DateInput.SelectedDate = DateTime.Today.AddDays(-1); 

    Can someone please explain why that is needed?

    I have a RadComboBox and upon selection of its SelectedIndexChanged event method that works without even having to set the additional DateInput.SelectedDate as you can see in this little code snippet.
    1     protected void rcbDateRange_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e) 
    2     { 
    3         //Dates should be disabled unless Custom has been selected 
    4         RadDatePickerStart.Enabled = false
    5         RadDatePickerEnd.Enabled = false
    7         switch (rcbDateRange.SelectedValue) 
    8         { 
    9             case "WeekSun"
    10                 RadDatePickerStart.SelectedDate = DateTime.Today.AddDays(-5); 
    11                 RadDatePickerEnd.SelectedDate = DateTime.Today.AddDays(-1); 
    12                 break
    13             case "custom"
    14                 RadDatePickerStart.SelectedDate = DateTime.Today.AddDays(-1); 
    15                 RadDatePickerEnd.SelectedDate = DateTime.Today.AddDays(-1); 
    16                 RadDatePickerStart.Enabled = true
    17                 RadDatePickerEnd.Enabled = true
    18                 break
    19             default
    20                 RadDatePickerStart.SelectedDate = DateTime.Today.AddDays(-1); 
    21                 RadDatePickerEnd.SelectedDate = DateTime.Today.AddDays(-1); 
    22                 break
    23         } 
    24     } 

    I am not sure why you have to set the DateInput.SelectedDate in the PreRender to make it bubble up to the DatePicker's textbox.

    I am using the SharedCalendar control and not sure if that makes a difference.

    Just for completeness here is the aspx telerik elements:
                          <telerik:RadComboBox ID="rcbDateRange" AllowCustomText="false" Skin="WebBlue" OnSelectedIndexChanged="rcbDateRange_SelectedIndexChanged"  
                                AutoPostBack="true" runat="server">  
                                    <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Yesterday" Value="Yesterday" Selected="True" runat="server" />  
                                    <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Week To Date (Starts Sun)" Value="WeekSun" runat="Server" />  
                                    <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Week To Date (Starts Mon)" Value="WeekMon" runat="server" />  
                                    <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Prior Week (Sun-Sat)" Value="PriorSun" runat="server" />  
                                    <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Prior Week (Mon-Sun)" Value="PriorMon" runat="server" />  
                                    <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Month to Date" Value="MonthToDate" runat="server" />  
                                    <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Prior Month" Value="PriorMonth" runat="server" />  
                                    <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Quarter to Date" Value="QuarterToDate" runat="server" />  
                                    <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Prior Quarter" Value="PriorQuarter" runat="server" />  
                                    <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Year to Date" Value="YearToDate" runat="server" />  
                                    <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Prior Year" Value="PriorYear" runat="server" />  
                                    <telerik:RadComboBoxItem IsSeparator="true" runat="server" />  
                                    <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Custom Range" Value="custom" runat="server" />  
                                <telerik:RadDatePicker ID="RadDatePickerStart" SharedCalendarID="sharedCalendar" OnPreRender="RadDatePickerStart_PreRender"  
                                    Skin="WebBlue" Enabled="false" runat="server">  
                                    <DateInput ID="rdpStartInput" ReadOnly="true" runat="server" />  
                            <telerik:RadDatePicker ID="RadDatePickerEnd" SharedCalendarID="sharedCalendar" OnPreRender="RadDatePickerEnd_PreRender"  
                                Skin="WebBlue" Enabled="false" runat="server">  
                                <DateInput ID="rdpEndDateInput" ReadOnly="true" runat="server" />  
            <telerik:RadCalendar ID="sharedCalendar" RangeMinDate="2005-04-01" runat="server" 
                EnableMultiSelect="false" Skin="WebBlue" Width="200px" ShowRowHeaders="false" 
                OnPreRender="sharedCalendar_PreRender" UseColumnHeadersAsSelectors="false"

    Hello Michael,

    I tested your scenario and was able to replicate the described issue locally. It seems that this behaviour is a bug and the SelectedDate properly works in all handlers except in PreRender. I will forward this to our developers, for further researching and a fix will be available in some of the upcoming releases.

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
    As a token of gratitude for your feedback I have updated your Telerik points.

    Hello Chris,

    I cannot reproduce the problem with our latest release. Could you provide more details about your scenario so we can investigate further?

    Best wishes,
