  • C#
  • VB
RadDatePicker exposes a rich client-side API that allows you to control its behavior.

You can manipulate the Min/MaxDate values using the following client-side properties:
  • get_minDate( ) - Returns the date, representing the MinDate of the datepicker.
  • set_minDate(date) - if the date is valid, the datepicker MinDate is set to it.
  • get_maxDate( ) - Returns the date, representing the MaxDate of the datepicker.
  • set_maxDate(date) - if the date is valid, the datepicker MaxDate is set to it.


You can manipulate the date selection by using the get_selectedDate()/set_selectedDate(newValue) method pair:
var date = datePicker.get_selectedDate();
date.setDate(date.getDate() + 1);
datePicker.set_selectedDate(date);
