    In one of our RadGridViews, we have a date-field. The GridView recognises the date-type and - hen in edit-mode - shows a nice RadDateTimePicker. This works fine! Even the culture has been set.

    <telerik:GridViewDataColumn
    DataMemberBinding="{Binding ADato}" Header="A dato." Width="80" UniqueName="ADato" DataFormatString="{}{0:d}" >    
     </telerik:GridViewDataColumn>

    But...
    - How can we use the ctrl + arrowdown to open the calendar (wihout using the mouse)? 
    - How can we select the whole text/date when entering the DateTimePicker or when he's got focus?
    - Isn't it a bit strange that the RadDateTimePicker accepts letters/text/words...?

    Hello Rieni De Rijke,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    The first and the second issues are bugs in our controls. We will fix them as soon as possible. 

    You can input text in the RadDateTimePicker because of a feature in the control which enables you to enter a day of the week and the current date will be parsed.

    Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information.


    All the best,
    George

    Thank you for your reply!
    When you are going to fix the bugs in the RadDateTimePicker could you maybe also look at this:
    1.  When a user opens the calendar (by using arrow-down) you should expect that one than could select a date by using the up- and down-arrows. But this is not working. So when opening the calendar with use of the keyboard, you still need your mouse to pick a date...
    When a user writes a date in the RadDateTimePicker (in a ViewGrid) a little field/tooltip appears just above the cell. The cell shows the expected date or the word "error". Because the position of this field is just in the above DataGrid-row-cell this is very confusing... Users could think they are changing the previous row! So...
    2. Could this feature have a "NotShow" possibility?
