Hi,

How can I allow the user to enter the Date in the Date Picker even without selecting the Date from the Date Picker.

Thanks and Regards,

Syed Danish

Hi Syed Danish,

You can enter a date directly when you type in the TextBox. In case you want to disable it you can set IsExanble = false.

Hi Kaloyan,

I need a water mark text in the RadDatePicker control when the xaml is loaded and should disappear by replacing with the cursor on focus,So that the user can enter the date manually.

Thanks and Regards,

Syed Danish

Hi Syed Danish,

Thank you for your question.

You can use a RadMaskedTextBox in the template of the RadDatePicker. The MaskedTextBox has a property EmptyContent="" which will do that work exactly.
Attached I am sending you a sample project in which is illustrated how to bind a MaskedTextBox to a DatePicker.

Please feel free to contact us again if you need further assistance.

All the best,
