Displaying the Popup

By default RadTimePicker controls display buttons to the right of the input area. When the user clicks on a button, the embedded RadTimeView control pops up to aid in selecting a value. This behavior happens automatically, without any programming on your part.

You can alter this behavior, hiding the TimePopupButton of the RadTimePicker control, and displaying the popup control from client-side code. The client-side showTimePopup() method displays the popup time view control.

The following example illustrates how to hide the popup buttons and use client-side code to display the popup. The RadDatePicker control displays its popup when the input area gets focus. The RadTimePicker control displays its popup when the user clicks in the input area. The RadDateTimePicker control displays its popup in response to a user key press.

<asp:Label ID="Label2" runat="server"
    AssociatedControlID="RadTimePicker1" Text="Time" />
<telerik:RadTimePicker RenderMode="Lightweight" ID="RadTimePicker1" runat="server">
    <DateInput onclick="ShowTimePopup()"></DateInput>
    <TimePopupButton Visible="False" />
function ShowTimePopup() {
    $find("<%= RadTimePicker1.ClientID %>").showTimePopup();
