Hello Saikiran,

Thank you for writing.

The easiest way to achieve this functionality is to subscribe to the KeyDown event of RadDateTimePicker and set the SupressKeyDown property from the event arguments to true:
void DateTimePickerElement_KeyDown(object sender, KeyEventArgs e)
{
    e.SuppressKeyPress = true;
}
 
I hope that you find this information helpful. Should you have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
