    I'm trying to use the RadDatePicker in a RadGridlike so: 

    <telerik:GridTemplateColumn HeaderText="Target Date" UniqueName="dateuomCol"> <EditItemTemplate>
    <telerik:RadDatePicker id="RadDatePicker1" Runat="server" Width="100px" />

    I have the datepicker showing up, but I need it to display todays date when i insert a new record.  Can anyone tell me how to do this?

    Hello David,

    You can use the ItemCreated event handler of the Grid to find the DatePicker and set its SelectedDate like this:

    protected void RadGrid1_ItemCreated(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.GridItemEventArgs e) 
            if (e.Item is GridEditableItem && e.Item.IsInEditMode) 
                RadDatePicker picker = (e.Item as GridEditableItem)["dateuomCol"].Controls[1] as RadDatePicker; 
                picker.SelectedDate = System.DateTime.Today; 

    See the following help article for more details on how to reference controls in the Grid.
