Hello,
I've just choosen Telerik for our new silverlight project but still one feature asked by the customer.
We want to add mask to the RadDatePicker "dd/MM/yyyy". 
The customer wants to write 2 numbers for days and the cursor must jump automatically after the "/". Then he enter two numbers for months and the cursor jump again after the second slash (/). and cusmtomer enter the year.
The customer must still be able to shoose from the calender. that's why we have chosen the RadDatePicker.
Is there a Way to Add mask to RadDatePicker with jump mechanism. 
Or should i implement it using key up to add slashes automatically (i tried this solution but i wasnt able to access the text entered by the user, because the raddatepicker convert it automatically to date)
I hope i was enough clear.
Can you advise me or help me issue this.
Thank u

Hi,
I would like to think you for your quick and consistent reply.
This was very helpfull for me.
still only how to jump automatically between days months and years with insertion of slashs between them without having to use arrows.
 I have to look for its feasability. Otherwise i have to convince the customer to change his habits.

Best Regards

Are these issues resolved in any of the version of Telerik controls?

Hello James,

The plans on implementing a input mask into the DatePicker control were canceled because we think the control is better used when having a free input and show a tooltip with the format of the input while typing in the control.

We have developed another control RadMaskedDateTimeInput that could be used if you want to have an input mask. You can read this help article that goes through on how to use RadMaskedDateTimeInput.

All the best,

Thanks Vladi for giving me the details of the newly introduced control. 

However, I was not able to get the control RadMaskedDateTimeInput in my version of Telerik control. Could you please suggest me which version has this control? And if you could provide me with some sample implementation that would be ideal.

Hello James,

RadMaskedDateTimeInput should be available in the Q1 2011 0419 release of RadControls.
