I already set the date format of the date input to "dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm", but some user may type in "dd/MM/yyyy HHmm" or "ddMMyyyy HH:mm" instead of using the calander and timeview, so it is invalid. 

Do you have any suggestion to cope with this problem?

Can I force the user to input a specific format of datetime by typing? I mean can the DateTimePicker already contains the separator "/ / :" and if the user only need to type in the number to represent the datetime?

Hello Jeff,

You can use RadMaskedTextBox and parse the entered value as DateTime in order to achieve such functionality which is not supported out-of-the-box.

RadMaskedTextBox example:
