My advice is to use the ParseDateTimeValue event when you want to expose a custom parsing logic. Set the desired date as an argument of the ParseDateTimeEventArge property and mark the IsParsingSuccessful to true. Also the control is not supporting the masked input. You may prefer to use the RadMaskedText box instead. Let us know if you have any further problems.
