    Hi there,

    We need to support some customised formats for user to type in the input box. e.g. if I type a "+5" in the input box today (03/03/2010), it needs to be converted to 08/03/2010  (the 5th day from today's date).

    We've tried to bind a converter to the datepicker, but it's too late as the input has already been updated by the default parsing logic. And the fact that having inputText as a private member is not helping either.

    So, Is there a way to change/extend the datepicker's default inputbox text parsing mechanism? Thanks in advance.

    Hi Richard van Diggelen,

    Extending the parse logic is not supported in the current version.
    We will add it to our backlog and if there is enough support we may expose it in the future.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team

    I'm highly interested in extending the parse logic of the DatePicker, could you tell me if this is now possible ? Thanks for your help.

    Hello Doots,

    You can use ParseDateTimeValue event of the DateTimePicker to implement custom logic.

    Hope it helps.
