Hi,

How do I prevent a date time picker's input box to NOT automatically select all the text on click? Essentially turning it into a default textbox?

Hi Albin,

I am not really sure I understand what exactly the problem is. Can you please check the following screencast and let me know what I missed?

Hi Kiril,

I forgot to mention that we used a masked input combine with the date time picker, sorry. It seems like the auto select on click behaviour is on the masked text box. http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/maskedtextbox/index.

Is there a way we can disable this behaviour?

Hello Albin,

I am afraid that this cannot be prevented without making changes in the Kendo UI code. Currently there is no option that you can set in order to prevent this from happening and it is actually the desired behavior of the widget.

If you think that such option should be introduced, please submit a UserVoice request, so it will be reviewed for a future release.

Hi,

The default behavior of the MaskedTextBox widget is to select the content when it is focused. If you would like to position the cursor explicitly I suggest using the approach from this thread.

The dojo below illustrates how the suggestion works:
