Hello,
I have a grid that has RadDatePicker control in date column. The records in the grid are called template which user can create a numer of them.  These templates get applied during the process to the project based on the matching criteria. Now I want the feature where user can apply template to every project regardless of matching dates during the process if the date contains "*".  Is there a way to customize datepicker control to support "*" as input value?

Thanks
Amit

Hello Amit Patel,

The RadDateTimePicker can accept every input. Then it tries to convert it to a valid date time format. Also the control support an event ("ParseDateTimeValue") where you can set your own parsing logic(setting it via the ParseDateTimeEventArgs parameter). There you can handle your use case.

Kind regards,

Thanks for replay!
I also need to be able to display "*" when user opens up the template next time. Is this possible too?

Hi Amit Patel,

You can attach an event handler to the DropDownOpened event and do the following trick:

private void radDateTimePicker_DropDownOpened(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
        {
            radDateTimePicker.SelectedValue = null;
            radDateTimePicker.DateTimeWatermarkContent = "*";
        }

Thanks for reply Kaloyan!
Honestly, this is not gonna work. I need to be able to support atleast 3 states empty, "*", and actual date. Are you planning on supporting these features in the future version, and meantime, is there way to extend the control to be able to support above mention state?

Thanks,
Amit

We will take that into account for the next iteration of the control. Thanks for the suggestion.

Hello Amit,

I am sorry, but this is still not supported in the current version of the controls. I have added this feature request in PITS. You can view it here. You can vote for it, track its status and see when it is going to be implemented.
