    I'm trying to set the tooltip on the RadDatePicker when I get a validation error from my viewmodel.

    <Trigger Property="Validation.HasError"Value="True">
    <Setter Property="FrameworkElement.ToolTip"
                                     Value="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource Self}, Path=(Validation.Errors).CurrentItem, Converter={StaticResource edenValidationErrorToolTipConverter}}"
                                        TargetName="PART_DateTimeInput" />

    No matter  what I try, I can't seem to update the tooltip.

    Hi Andy,

    In case your RadDatePickers are data bound, you have to defined the binding expression to throw an exception in case of invalid input date:

                    <Binding Path="SelectedDate" ValidatesOnDataErrors="True"
                            <ExceptionValidationRule />
                      <DataErrorValidationRule />

    All the best,
