Hi,

I am trying to set the SelectedDate property for my date picker which comes out of a XML file.  But the error that I keep on getting is:

Specified cast is not valid.

The date is in the format of 2008/01/01 in my XML file.

Here is my code:

<radG:GridTemplateColumn
   HeaderText="Date Of Deposit"
   UniqueName="DateOfDeposit">
   <ItemTemplate>
      <asp:Label ID="lblDateOfDeposit" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("DateOfDeposit") %>'></asp:Label>
   </ItemTemplate>
   <EditItemTemplate>
      <radCln:RadDatePicker
         ID="rdDateOfDeposit"
         SelectedDate='<%# Eval("DateOfDeposit") %>'
         runat="server">
         <DatePopupButton
           HoverImageUrl="~/RadControls/Calendar/Skins/Default/Img/datePickerPopupHover.gif"
           ImageUrl="~/RadControls/Calendar/Skins/Default/Img/datePickerPopup.gif" />
      </radCln:RadDatePicker>
   </EditItemTemplate>
</radG:GridTemplateColumn>

Please can someone help me?

Thanks
Brendan

Hi,

I got to the solution of this error.  But this is the second control that I come across where I had to set a property that wasn't in the intellisense but it had to be set!!  Are these bugs?

DbSelectedDate='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "DateOfDeposit") %>'

Now the next issue that I am having is that if the date comes in as an empty string then I want the date picker's textbox to be blank.

Please help.

Hello Brendan,

DbSelectedDate is similar to SelectedValue of standard Microsoft GridView control. You can set this only with binding expression.

All the best,
