Hi,

I need to set DateTimePicker.DateInput.Text in codebehind, but the following error occurs when I set as dateTimeBirthDate.DateInput.Text = "2007/11/12"; for example.

Text property cannot be set. String was not recognized as a valid DateTime.

How could I set this property appropriately?

Thanks,
Ricky.

Hi Ricky,

When working with a RadDatePicker you should use its SelectedDate property to change the value in the DateInput. Since this property is of type System.DateTime you should parse the string that you want to pass to the picker like this:
RadDateTimePicker1.SelectedDate = System.DateTime.Parse("2007/11/12"); 

I hope this helps.

Sincerely yours,

Hi Pavel

I know the way you provide to me. But we are leveaging wwDataBinder http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/cc163505.aspx to help data-binding process, and wwDataBinder is best to bind the value to controls' Text property.
Hence, if DateTimePicker.DateInput.Text can be assigned DateTime-format string, it would save us a lot.

Thanks,
Ricky.

Hello Ricky,


Binding a RadDatePicker, RadTimePicker, or RadDateTimePicker control to a data source is easy provided you use the DbSelectedDate property. It works almost like the SelectedDate one, but does not throw an exception when given a null value.

In addition you can review the following help article:

This look very simple for me

  DatapickerName.Value= DateTime.Parse(dateToSet)
