    Using the RadControl helper to create a date picker.  I'm also using script to do this:

    var comp = $find("<%= StartDate.ClientID %>");

    Similar to what you would do in ASP.NET web forms.  But I get an error.  So I took it out and inspected the markup, and I couldn't find a StartDate element, so I don't know if that is also contributing to the error.

    Any ideas for handling this?

    Hi Brian Mains,

    To find the client object of specified radcontrol you will need to pass the id of the component to the $find method. In the case when you are using Html.RadControl<T>() method you set id of the control into Func. The defined id is the one you should use when you are looking for the client object.

    I have attached a test project which shows how to achieve your goal.
