    It would appear that the RadDateTimePicker does not have a ReadOnly property.  I am aware that I can disable the control.  A control that is disabled behaves differently than a control that is set to read only.  The controls appearance is also different.

    Is there a way to set the RadDateTimePicker to read only?  if not then is there a work around to disable the control and make it appear as if it were read only?  If not, then may I suggest that is a future version that you add read only functionality.

    I find this interesting that the DateTimePicker that ships with VS also lacks a ReadOnly property.

    Hi michael schroeder,

    Thank you for the question.

    Generally, we tend to follow the API and behavior of the standard controls. This allows us our customers to upgrade their applications to RadControls more easily. As in the standard DateTimePicker, we do not have a ReadOnly property. However, our Telerik Presentation Framework allows you to get the normal behavior of RadDateTimePicker even when it is disabled. To do this, you should set the following properties:
    this.radDateTimePicker1.Enabled = false;
    this.radDateTimePicker1.RootElement.UseDefaultDisabledPaint = false;

    If you have additional questions, feel free to contact us.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
