I've got my DatePicker (and calendar and input), but it doesn't work with this "yyyyMMdd" format. It works with spaces or characters between, but not all together. Why not? When I try to use this format and pick a date from the calendar, the input part gives me the little warning sign. Some relevant code:

<telerik:RadCalendar runat="server" ID="RadCalendar"/>
<telerik:RadDatePicker runat="server" ID="rdpRequestDate" SharedCalendarID="RadCalendar">>
      <DateInput DateFormat="yyyyMMdd" DisplayDateFormat="yyyyMMdd" />
</telerik:RadDatePicker>

Hello,

With the current implementation of RadDatePicker you will not be able to set the DateFormat to "yyyyMMdd" directly. Nevertheless, you could try the following workaround that will allow you to use "yyyyMMdd" as DateFormat:
<telerik:RadCodeBlock ID="RadCodeBlock1" runat="server">
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function setDateFormat(sender, args) {
            sender.set_dateFormat("yyyyMMdd");
        }
    </script>
</telerik:RadCodeBlock>
 
<telerik:RadCalendar runat="server" ID="RadCalendar1"/>
<telerik:RadDatePicker runat="server" ID="rdpRequestDate" SharedCalendarID="RadCalendar1">
    <DateInput runat="server" DateFormat="yyyy MM dd" DisplayDateFormat="yyyyMMdd" ClientEvents-OnLoad="setDateFormat"/>
</telerik:RadDatePicker>

Hope that helps.
