Selecting Month and Day with RadDatePicker


Product Progress Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX
Version all


To guide a user to select a month and a day without displaying the year using Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX, you can use the RadDatePicker control with a specific configuration.


Follow these steps to configure the RadDatePicker control:

  1. Add the RadDatePicker control to your page or form.
  2. Set the DateFormat and DisplayDateFormat properties of the DateInput property to "MMMM dd" to ensure that only the month and day part of the date is displayed in the input field.
  3. Optionally, you can customize the appearance of the calendar by modifying the properties of the Calendar element. For example, you can disable the row headers by setting UseRowHeadersAsSelectors and ShowRowHeaders properties to "False".

Here is an example of how you can configure the RadDatePicker control:

<telerik:RadDatePicker ID="RadDatePicker1" runat="server" DateInput-DateFormat="MMMM dd" DateInput-DisplayDateFormat="MMMM dd">
    <Calendar UseRowHeadersAsSelectors="False" ShowRowHeaders="False"></Calendar>

With this configuration, the RadDatePicker control will guide the user to select a month and a day without displaying the year.
