We would like to change the behavior of the RadDateTimeEditorElement when entering a date via the keyboard.
Depending on the location the application is used in, the date will be entered in either dd/MMM/yyyy format or dd/MM/yyyy format.
Lets use dd/MMM/yyyy format as an example...
When clicking on the MMM section of the date, user should be able to key in "JAN" or "FEB", etc. Currently when they enter "J" and want to get to July, they have to press "J" several times to get to it. Pressing "A" after the "J" would take them to "APR". Other date controls in the application do not behave this way so the users are a little frustrated.
When clicking on the yyyy section of the date, the year rolls as the keyboard is being pressed. So if the date was 1973 and the user wanted it to change to 2015, they would see 2197... 2019... 2011.. 2015. The users see this as high risk for error.
Basically, the user wants to be able to key in an entire date (with the format restricted) and it be validated when entry is completed.
I'm sure we can override the events in order to do something like this, whether it be on the keypress/keydown/keyup events... but because the entire section of the date is always selected, I'm unsure how to do this.... or maybe it's a completely different event I should be looking at altogether.
Any help would be appreciated.
