    When you click the "Today" button in the fast navigation pane it only takes you to the current month.  I read a post from 3 years ago that mentioned this is the expected behavior.  Why is this still the behavior?  Why can't this automatically choose todays date also? You know like the button states?

    I imagine 99.99% if not all of the user population would expect "Today" to choose todays date in the datepicker.

    Hello Robert,

    As you have pointed out, this is the expected behavior of the Today button in the Year/Month popup of RadCalendar, which used only for fast month navigation. When you click on "Today", the RadCalendar would show you the current month and you can then select today's date. If you want to automatically select the current date, you could easily achieve that by adding the following property:
    <telerik:RadDateTimePicker ID="RadDateTimePicker1" runat="server">
            <FastNavigationSettings EnableTodayButtonSelection="true">

    That should do the trick. Please give it a try and let me know about the result.
