So you don't want the RadDateInput control to guess and autocorrect, right? Suppose that you have set the following DateFormat -
and the user enters 05/07
/10 in the textbox. If you want to support both mm/dd/yyyy and dd/mm/yyyy formats at the same time, what date should be that?
Can you specify which best practice do we violate in the case that we are discussing?
Another thing - the DateInput control, which is internally used by RadDatePicker, intentionally tries to guess what the user has entered, because of popular demand. The purpose is to support partial dates, e.g. if you enter "july 5", the control will parse the input and assume that you mean "July 5 of the current year". That's why the control always splits the user input into parts, figures out which part is what, then constructs a date object and applies it to the textbox in the specified format
