    I'm having a rendering issue with RadDateTimePicker and RadDatePicker controls.
    When I set the selected date on server side the control display for a little time a strange value: 2012-04-17-15-19-33. Moreover the input control overlaps the first icon. I have attached a sample picture (raddatetimepicker_before.jpg).
    After some milliseconds the control renders fine (raddatetimepicker_after.jpg).

    My users complain that the control "flickers" when the page start and infact this behavior is strange.
    Is there a way to avoid this behavior?


    I don't have an update panel in all of my pages and I cannot insert it when there isn't. I have done a simple test and if I wrap the control with an update panel I don't have the issue.

    Hello Giovanni,

    In general this happens very fast and should not be seen by the user. It will be fixed for the next release and the value will be shown correctly on initialize with no flickering. Until then you could set EnableSingleInputRendering="false" for the DateInput of the pickers to avoid this problem.
