The observed by you behavior of RadDateTimePicker
is an expected one. The control parses the entered value only by the set ShortDatePatern
- if you try to enter the date in the format set to LongDatePattern
, it will not be parsed. The date could not be parsed by both ShortDatePattern
- you could use the LongDatePattern
in order to visualize the date differently using the DisplayFormat
property but if you try to modify it that won't be accepted.
However, what we could suggest you for you scenario is to implement a custom parsing which will accept both formats. Please, check this article from our help documentation that will provide you a detailed information how to achieve this:
