We tried to reproduce this design time exception in VS 2010 with RadMaskedDateTimeInput from Q2 2014 dlls but we did not succeed. Is it possible for you to isolate this in a runnable sample and send it to use in a separate support thread ? Which version of RadControls do you use ? Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
