Every time you try to edit the year part, strange things happen.

"20" is not accepted as 2020, "60" not as 1960. Typing in a full year like 2020 is also not accepted.

Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong?

Hello Roland,

Does the online demo work fine for you, as it does for me: https://demos.telerik.com/blazor-ui/dateinput/overview? I can enter both 1960 and 2020.

In case you are trying to input a two-digit format - I'd advise against that as it produces heuristic issues that I just described in this new section: https://docs.telerik.com/blazor-ui/components/dateinput/supported-formats#two-digit-year-formats.

I am using a 4-digit format as workaround, but 2-digit formats are quite normal over here. That is why most tools and OS-es have cutoff years. Often a floating cutoff year that is 50 years before the current date. So anything below 70 would be 20xx. Or you can have a cutoff year close to a century ago, because you consider dates past more relevant than future dates. 

.NET has System.Globalization.TwoDigitYearMax.
