    Hi there,

    By default, the datepicker control automatically resets the value if manually entering an invalid day, or month value) . I.e. if day = '43' it changes it to '03', if month = '14' it changes it to '4').

    Is it possible to simple show an "invalid date" message in this case so that the user is aware that a correction is needed? The control currently picks a valid value so the user is not aware that they entered an invalid date.

    Hi Anthea,

    Indeed, our initial intent was to add an auto correcting behavior out-of-the-box for convenience, but it seems many developers expect the end user to be able to type an invalid date segment, and only a validation error to be triggered, as opposed to switching to a valid value automatically.

    This is why we logged an enhancement item to our public GitHub repository that you can track here:

    We will do our best to address this as soon as possible, and the GitHub thread will be updated accordingly.
