Hi,

I populate the RadDateTimePicker with a default date on the server side.

The control is rendered and the user can modify the date, but should be able to restore the control to its default value.

I couldn't find a client side function which covers this. I have tried to use the defaultValue of the HTML textbox element which I can get via
- $find(dtp.ClientID).get_textBox() -
but the value is stored in the wrong format to do a Date.parse(datetime_string) and I don't want to spend lots of time on this issue.

What would be the suggested way?

Thanks.

Kind regards,
Christoph

Hello Christoph,


Use the set_selectedDate() method to set date in DatePicker. Check the documentation for some sample code regarding this.

Hi Shinu,

Thank you for your reply.

I do use set_selectedDate() but I want to be able to restore the RadDateTimePicker to its default value.

The default value is the value the control gets assigned on the server side and is displayed to the user the first time the page is rendered.

The question is whether the RadDateTimePicker has a built-in mechanism on the client side to restore to this default value after the user has selected a different datetime.

I can surely add some hidden input, Date.parse() etc. but I first wanted to check whether I have missed something in the API or someone else came across the same requirement.

Kind regards,
Christoph

Hello Christoph,

The RadDateTimePicker does not implement such built-in mechanism for restoring the default value. As you already mentioned possible options could be to use hidden field, Date.parse or other similar way for restoring the needed value.
