    Good day,

    we are having some problems while trying to assign a string time value to a radtimepicker.

    Page logic is as follows:
    We have a formview with a bound control. That control is displaying a string with the value of a previous radtimepicker user inserted value.
    We need to clientside assign the string value of the bound control to a radtimepicker in the current page.

    We've read the api at
    and there the only method seems to be set_selectedDate as a method to update the target field.
    The problem is that set_selectedDate accepts only a date type, while our source type is a string.

    We don't want to implement culture support for conversion from time string to time date, so we need to know:
    1- is there an alternative client side method for setting the time in a radtimepicker, that uses a string parameter
    2- is there an 'universal' datetime format that we can Date.Parse out time string ("08:30") so that the radtimepicker will accept it without culture and timezone problems?

    Thanks in advance

    Hello Francesco,

    If you can ensure that you have a correct time format, you can use the following approach for setting that time in the RadTimePicker:
    <telerik:RadCodeBlock ID="RadCodeBlock1" runat="server">
        <script type="text/javascript">
            function pageLoad() {
                var picker = $find("<%=RadTimePicker1.ClientID%>");
                picker.get_textBox().value = "8:00";
    <telerik:RadTimePicker runat="server" ID="RadTimePicker1"></telerik:RadTimePicker>

    Please note that you need to focus and blur the textBox element in order for the control to update its selected date.

    Hope this helps.
