    What are the MinDate and MaxDate limits ?

    In the Documentation i have not found a limit for these values and i was surprised that the valid datetime value 31.12.9999 was not accepted form the RadDateTimePickerElement.

    Hello Ramius,

    Thank you for your inquiry. Like the standard DateTime picker, the maximum valid date is 31th of Dec, 9998. The min date is Jan. 1st 1900.

    Best wishes,

    But I find that c#(vs2005) standard DatetimePicker can set to lower than 1900-1-1

    Hello c mutex,

    Thank you for your feedback. I researched this issue and I saw that the minimum value that could be set in the microsoft's datetimepicker is 1/1/1753. I updated your Telerik points for the report. This issue will be solve in the 2010 Q2 SP1.

    If you have another questions feel free to contact us.

    Is there a way to change the default for MaxDate to 12/31/9999 ?
    All of our forever term dates in our database are set 12/31/9999 and using the datetimepicker causes an update everytime when apply this date. I can not use the DatatimePicker or any of the controls that use it if I cant change the default date.

    Hello Dan,

    Thank you for contacting Telerik Support.

    The maximum supported date in our RadDateTimePicker control can be found in the RadDateTimePickerElement.MaximumDateTime static readonly property, which value is December 31, 9998. The same maximum value is allowed for the standard DateTimePicker control. However, you can change this value via reflection:
    FieldInfo fi = typeof(RadDateTimePickerElement).GetField("MaxDateTime", BindingFlags.Static | BindingFlags.Public);
    fi.SetValue(null, DateTime.MaxValue, BindingFlags.Public | BindingFlags.Static, null, null);
    this.radDateTimePicker1.MaxDate = DateTime.MaxValue;
    this.radDateTimePicker1.Value = this.radDateTimePicker1.MaxDate;

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.

    Thanks for the info. That sort of works, I can enter 12/31/9999 but the calendar picker doesnt allow it to go past 12/31/9998 still.
    Any way to fix that also.

    Thanks, Dan

    My mistake, this worked perfectly. I was looking at a different control.
