In RadDatetimepicker, need an editable option for all DD/MM/YYYY without clicking any arrow keys. Eg: If I’m once I enter the date it should automatically move to the month and year.

Hi Jaya,

This is can be achieved by setting the following property:
var provider = radDateTimePicker1.DateTimePickerElement.TextBoxElement.Provider as MaskDateTimeProvider;
provider.AutoSelectNextPart = true;

Should you have any other questions do not hesitate to ask.

Hello Dimitar,

Thank you for the suggested solution it works nicely,But the auto selection function should stop on the year & should not move to the day/month field. Please suggest any method.

Hello Jaya,

You can create a custom MaskDateTimeProvider and override its SelectFirstItem not calling the base implementation: 
public partial class RadForm1 : Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadForm
{
    public RadForm1()
    {
        InitializeComponent();
 
        this.radDateTimePicker1.Format = DateTimePickerFormat.Custom;
        this.radDateTimePicker1.CustomFormat = "dd/M/yyyy";
         
        MyMaskDateTimeProvider provider = new MyMaskDateTimeProvider(this.radDateTimePicker1.DateTimePickerElement.TextBoxElement.Mask, this.radDateTimePicker1.Culture, this.radDateTimePicker1.DateTimePickerElement.TextBoxElement);
        provider.AutoSelectNextPart = true;
        this.radDateTimePicker1.DateTimePickerElement.TextBoxElement.Provider = provider;
    }
}
 
public class MyMaskDateTimeProvider : MaskDateTimeProvider
{
    public MyMaskDateTimeProvider(string mask, CultureInfo culture, RadMaskedEditBoxElement owner)
        : base(mask, culture, owner)
    {
    }
 
    public override void SelectFirstItem()
    {
        //base.SelectFirstItem();
    }
}

I hope this will help. Let me know if you need further assistance.
