Hi,

I need a basic date editor for Silverlight.  The editor needs to do the following:
1.) allow the entry of the following example string of numbers and interpret them as a date.  Example: 01011950 is interpreted as 01/01/1950; 010150 is interpreted ast 01/01/1950;  010112 is interpreted as 01/01/2012 (any year beyond '40 is rounded to the prior century)
2.) I would like the two / characters to automatically display in the editbox (without the user having to enter the slashes)
3.) I don't want a calandar control to show (reason is that our use is to enter a large number of historical dates from decades ago, and a calandar control is not so useful...the users use the numeric keypad of their computer...hence, they can't (easily) type in a / character.
4.) I want to use this control either stand alone on a page, or as an editor for the cell of a grid.

Can telerik's controls do this for me?

Thanks!

Andy

Hello andy,

Most of the requested features are supported by the RadDatePicker. Nonetheless this control, my advice to you is to use our new RadDateTimePicker as it supports most of the valid date format. The control will support tree input state - DatePicker, TimePicker and DateTimePicker. This will be available for the Q2 2010 release.

Best wishes,

Hi Kaloyan,

Thanks for the reply...  But not sure what you meant by "Most of the requested features...".  Could you tell me which of these are supported and which are not supported?

I also did not understand your reference to a version of the software for Q2 2010 release.  Since it's already almost the end of Q2 2010, is this already released?  Do I need to use this version to get the four features I require?

Your clairification on these would be appreciated.

Kind regards,

Andy

I just downloaded the current trial version of the controls, and it does not appear to support most...maybe any...of the above requirements.  Is there a new version that will support these requirements?  Could you review and claify?

Thanks!

Hello andy,

The first point from your list is supported by default. As about the second point - the user doesn't needed to enter the slash when typing any dates. About the third - you have to made some template changes in order to hide the calendar inside the style of the RadDatePicker. And finally the control is completely useful when placed inside a grid cell. Check the examples for some valuable info. Let us know if the clarifications are not enough.

Sincerely yours,
