    With the ASP.Net version of the calendar, if I deleted a date in the input box (just highlighted with the mouse and hit backspace), the slashes / remained, and I could enter a date without them (i.e. "01072008"). The AJAX version wipes out the slashes - is there a way to retain the old behavior?

    Hi Bill,

    It seems that you've upgraded from v.1.x of the Input controls where they had a mask. Since v.2.x of the Classic controls, this is no longer true. The logic of the DateInput component is completely revised and it is a free-form date entry tool now (the masking functionality has been removed). You can find the changes and backward compatibility guide for RadDatePicker here and for RadInput here. I'm posting here two important help articles as well as a blog post about the new Input controls, which recommend you for review:

    Hope these help.
