Hello,

I am using RadDateTimePicker (Version 2016.1.328.45) in my WPF application. The requirement is such that I need to select all text inside the DateTimePicker when the user clicks inside it. For this purpose, I am using the GotFocus event, inside which I am getting the TextBox inside the DateTimePicker by the method FindChildByType<TextBox>() and then calling SelectAll() on this TextBox.

 

This doesn't work. Any suggestions or workarounds on how to achieve this?

Thanks.

Hi Abdul,

I am here providing the solution I have already sent you in the ticket you have raised as it might be helpful for other users.

You can handle the PreviewMouseDown event of the DateTimePicker and apply the following logic:
 
private void dtPicker_PreviewMouseDown(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e)
       {
           if ((e.OriginalSource as UIElement).ParentOfType<RadWatermarkTextBox>() != null)
           {
              e.Handled = true;
              (e.OriginalSource as UIElement).ParentOfType<RadWatermarkTextBox>().Focus();
           }
       }
