Non-date values don't trigger change events...so I can't remove\fix non-date values (as the control doesn't seem to enforce that itself...or am I missing a property to do that?)

Hello Steve,

 
The described behavior is expected. The DatePicker widget raises when its value changes. When an invalid date is entered then the widget value is null. If another invalid string is typed its value is still null and change event will not be raised. If you need to listen to input change then I will suggest you wire it instead of the widget's one. 

All the best,

Well if yer gonna do that, then please at least make it so it ONLY accepts dates, like wipe the text if some non-date value is in there.

What you're doing to me is making me need to write my own blur\change for every date picker I use...ever...in anything

I have to agree...seems like a no-brainer to me.  Why in the world would I want someone to be able to type in "blah" for a date field?  So now, I have to manually handle this myself...

I agree.  This is horrible behavior. It's a datepicker field.  Why would I want to ignore 'blah'?
