    Hi All!

    We have some grid with GridViewDateTimeColumns, the display format is {0:d} - short date pattern, in our case it means yyyy.MM.dd., e.g. 2013.12.18 as today.

    When a user would like to record a new date, e.g. 2014.01.01, he/she must press the following keys: 2014<right arrow>01<right arrow>01. The right arrow needs to move to the next parts, month and day.

    Can I change this behavior, and achieve a kind of fast or continuous editing? means, the user should press only the numeric keys, and the editor automatically moves the cursor to the next part of the date without pressing the right arrow?!

    regards,

    Peter Szintai

    Hello Peter,

    Thank you for writing.

    The observed behavior is the desired one for the date time editor and the user is required to confirm the change of an element (date, month, year) by pressing the arrow key or the separator key - in your case this would be a dot. 

    There is a feature request for such a functionality. Feel free to add your vote for it here: http://www.telerik.com/support/pits.aspx#/details/Issue=1081.

    I hope that you find this information useful.
