    the user wants to enter the time directly in a RadTimePicker.
    If he enters "00:59" everything is fine. But if he uses "0059" instead, the result is "05:09".
    That's surprising and not reasonable for the user.

    Other examples for this behaviour are:
    "0201" => "20:01"
    "0022" => "22:00"

    Is there any reason for this behaviour?

    Thanks for your help.
    Kind Regards

    Hi Bettina,

    This behaviour is by design and the logic is that the entered number is transformed to fit best for the 24 hour format. But the visualization is according to the culture of the computer.
    I can suggest you to implement custom time parsing to fit your requirements. You can find more information in this help article.

    Hope this helps.
